9:02 am
from brussels to d.c., he had another three-hour layover. then on to dallas. >> levs not symptomatic on those flights, so not contagious according to cdc and health officials. >> le arrived september 20th and was in the hospital september 28th. his nephew accused texas presbyterian hospital in dallas of not taking the ebola threat seriously. >> he is doing all right. she a fighter. he is still fighting it. he wasn't getting appropriate care and i was fear, i feared that other people might you know also get infected if he wasn't taken care of. >> remember duncan was sent home. the nephew called the cdc and said you got to do something. >> they turned him away.
9:03 am
>> they told they could neither confirm or deny and 80 people came into contact with duncan, not all had close physical contact. they also don't foe the time frame. >> and this is significantly from the dozen to 18, officially the cdc dr. tom frieden say yesterday so it's significant. they are gathering information. >> and the numbers of people that come in contact with children. notices went out to five students that may have had close contact with him. >> we reached out to the hospital and state health department last night. we haven't heard back yet. it adds intrigue when you hear the nephew saying i knew how serious it was and the hospital didn't take it so serious. >> mistakes happened because

first of all, buy yourself nice sound control head phones and don't get on a flight with families and kids. >> we have all different holidays. i had a kid kick the back of my seat. was it annoy something. >> you can say something? >> no, i didn't. sometimes mom or dad doesn't know what's happening. >> i do think that there are a few things i cannot just bear down and say it's the kid. the kid is on the plane. i don't know what that kid has done all day long. no kidding that's different t. flight attendant should have done something. >> i can bear down and take it. >> i continue. i'm not ready for it. >> i think you give the parents an annoying look.

a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require regular blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. gps: proceed to the designated route. not today. for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes.
9:41 am
don't stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, unless your doctor tells you to. while taking xarelto®, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding, and in rare cases, may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto®, watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once-a-day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring, no known dietary restrictions. for information and savings options, download the xarelto® patient center app, call 1-888-xarelto, or visit goxarelto.com.
