Healthcare experts in the US are criticising a top official for saying a "protocal breach" caused a Dallas nurse to be infected with ebola, while caring for a dying patient.
Dr Thomas Frieden made the declaration on Saturday, and called for an investigation into how the unidentified nurse became infected while looking after Thomas Eric Duncan - the first ebola patient diagnosed in the US.
Healthcare professionals claim the case shows how far the nation's hospitals are from adequately training staff to deal with the deadly virus.
Meanwhile, Ireland's Government is being slammed over its decision not to send Irish troops to fight Ebola in West Africa.
Barry Andrews, CEO of GOAL, says Irish soldiers themselves want to help.
