Secret serum saves doctor?

Carol speaks with CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta about an experiemental treatment given to Dr. Kent Brantly when Dr. Brantley's position took a turn for the worse. The serum, which hadn't been tried in humans had been developed by biotech firm Mapp Biopharmaceutical.

"They say they gave it to him and again, he went from thinking he was going to die and very dire condition to nearly a complete reversal within an hour."

    Carol – you interviewed Dr Gupta this morning. He said Ebola is not transmitted in the air, only if you get bodily fluids on you. And he said of course the doctors at Emory Hospital are completely covered up. Doesn't anyone wonder how Dr Brantley got infected? Surely he knew the protocol and was completely covered? Surely all the other doctors were completely covered up? Today a new doctor in Nigeria is infected with Ebola. Surely he knew the protocol and was completely covered up? Why isn't any journalist asking how these doctors are becoming infected?
