Sadly, nurses were afraid to touch her for fear of contracting Ebola, and so they kept them waiting in their car for three hours even though Salome tested negative for a recent test she did on Ebola.

Mr. Harris also explained that the hospital where his wife delivered their baby sent her home early even though her blood pressure was high.
