THOMAS ERIC DUNCAN, AMERICA'S FIRST EBOLA PATIENT: A STORY OF CONFLICTING DATES OF DEATH

October 27th, 2014

After learning about the interview +Professor Doom1 had found on 60 minutes, FNN has scoured the internet for any indications that Mr. Duncan, the first Ebola patient in the US had died on October 4th, 2014.  It is CLEAR that his condition was upgraded from "serious" to "CRITICAL" on October 4th, but we can find no mention of his death on that date.  Regardless, we have the now recorded testimony of a 20 year veteran RN, John Mulligan, who went on record with the CBS News Program, 60-Minutes on October 26th, where he states that Mr. Duncan became critical on Saturday, and died within 15 minutes of being intubated and sedated.  This would have to be on Saturday, October 4th, 2014.
See the Video from +Professor Doom1 Here:


We have a reason for why we think there is a 4 day discrepancy in the date of death for Mr. Duncan, which will be followed up in an additional report.  In the meantime, we have captured a longer segment of the 60-minutes video to put everything into context:

FNN Follow Up Video:

You've heard a lot about the Dallas hospital that treated Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in America. But you've never heard what actually happened from the people who fought for his life at the risk of their own. You're about to meet four nurses who treated Duncan from the time he came into the emergency room, to the moment that he died. The staff had been blindsided by a biomedical emergency that burst into their ER like a wildfire. Contrary to reports that the hospital bungled the response, the story the nurses tell sounds more like a heroic effort to stop an outbreak. On September 28, Duncan was rushed by ambulance to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. He was isolated in a separate section of the ER and nurse Sidia Rose, starting the night shift, was briefed on the special precautions required for what they now suspected was a case of Ebola.
Richard Townsend: He was having so much diarrhea and vomiting that he, you know, she was constantly having to give him the little bags that we have for people to vomit into. 
Richard Townsend: All of that was hazardous waste and it had to be bagged and then double bagged and then put into a separate container that could then be disposed of later. Because anything that has any of his bodily fluids on it has the potential to be lethal to somebody else.
_______________________________________________________________________
On September 29, Duncan was carried from the emergency department to intensive care. Nurse Nina Pham, who was involved in the transfer, would become the first person to catch the virus in the United States.
It took 48 hours to get Duncan's positive test results. And by then the hospital, on its own, had equipped the staff with suits that allowed no skin to be exposed. It would be another three weeks before the CDC made this its new standard. Then the hospital moved out all of the patients in medical intensive care and reconfigured the 24-bed unit for just one patient. It was a strange scene for ICU nurse John Mulligan.
_________________________________________________________________________
John Mulligan: This is the full suit, yes. There were always two of us in the room at all times. And we were designated two people to be in there. I've been in health care for nearly 20 years and I've never emptied as much trash as just from the waste of his constant diarrhea that he was having was remarkable. And we had these longer surgical type gloves on. They were taped to the Tyvek suit, full headgear with a circulator with a HEPA filter that would plug into the back. And the first time I got out of that suit, it literally looked like someone had pushed me into a swimming pool. I was drenched.
They were working 16 to 18 hour days, spending two hours at a time in Duncan's room.
John Mulligan: And we held his hand and talked to him and comforted him because his family couldn't be there. 
Scott Pelley: You held his hand through the spacesuit? 
John Mulligan: I did. He was glad someone wasn't afraid to take care of him. And we weren't. 
Richard Townsend: I have nothing but respect and admiration for everyone that was involved in his care you know everyone has someone in their lives that they love and they care about. I have a five-year-old and a three-year-old and my wife is pregnant. And the mortality rate for pregnant women with Ebola is, it's essentially 100 percent.
Scott Pelley: But Richard, why don't you go to the administration and say, "You know, I'm sorry. But my wife is pregnant." 
Richard Townsend: People were allowed to request not to be tasked with his care.
Krista Schaefer: We asked for volunteers. Everyone volunteered.
Scott Pelley: Everyone was a volunteer, everyone that was there wanted to be there?
Krista Schaefer: Every person, housekeeping, respiratory, physicians, nurses. 
But despite all the volunteers Duncan grew worse. An experimental drug wasn't helping.
John Mulligan: Early Saturday morning he had become very critically ill and was placed on a respirator. (THIS WOULD BE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4th, 2014)
Scott Pelley: He was intubated.
John Mulligan: He was intubated.
Scott Pelley: Tube down his throat?
John Mulligan: Tube down his throat. He had a dialysis catheter placed because he was not making any urine, but he needed to. He was heavily sedated and he had tears running down his eyes, rolling down his face, not just normal watering from a sedated person. This was in the form of tears. And I grabbed a tissue and I wiped his eyes and I said, "You're going to be okay. You just get the rest that you need. Let us do the rest for you." And it wasn't 15 minutes later I couldn't find a pulse. And I lost him. And it was the worst day of my life. This man that we cared for, that fought just as hard with us, lost his fight. And his family couldn't be there. And we were the last three people to see him alive. And I was the last one to leave the room. And I held him in my arms. He was alone.
The day John Mulligan, RN is describing, is SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4th, 2014... NOT October 7th or October 8th 2014, the dates that the mainstream media have reported as Mr. Duncan's actual date of death.  So what would cause the direct caregiver RN's to report that Mr. Duncan died in actuality on Saturday October 4th, and not on Thursday, October 8th as it was blasted over all news and social media?

Stay tuned for that update.... we have an idea....
