And right to the breaking news this morning. Another health worker in Texas testing positive for ebola. The news coming one day after the CDC admitted it could have done more to stop the spread of the virus. Tom llamas is in Dallas. What do we know about the latest patient? Reporter: Good morning. We know that patient is a health care worker here at Texas health presbyterian. Now the second person being treated for ebola in Dallas and at the hospital. Put this into perspective. This is a hospital without a specialized biocontainment unit. This is a general hospital. And this morning, doing something no other general hospital has done, treat two ebola patients at the same time. We don't know how they became infected, but they were one of the 76 the CDC was closely monitoring after the nurse, Nina Pham, contracted ebola from Tom Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who died at the hospital. First responders around Dallas are sealing off that patient's apartment. Getting into contact with the people the patient may know. And handing out fliers so neighbors know as well, to be careful that someone in the neighborhood tested positive for ebola. We're waiting on the CDC to confirm the results that this new patient has ebola. All right, Tom llamas with the latest. Thank you. And strong allegations from the largest nurses union in the U.S. Saying that Thomas Duncan was left in an open area of the hospital emergency room for hours, and nurses worked for days without proper gear. The hospital promising to review and respond. Stay with ABC news on air and online, and bring you the latest developments from the ebola crisis as we get them.
