Tragic: Ebola Victim Thomas Duncan Begged for Diaper Prior to Deαth

Last week the nephew of an Ebola victim who died accused the Dallas hospital thatDuncan treated him of racism. If the allegations are true, then the loss of Thomas Duncan is even more tragic than originally thought, but the heart-wrenching story of the moments prior to Duncan’s deαth are so horrendous that they will probably do little to put his family’s mind at ease.

In addition to losing his life, medical charts seem to indicate that Duncan lost his dignity as Ebola destroyed his organs.

Duncan, who flew to Texas from Liberia, was hopeful at one point, even asking for an action movie and food. Still, his deαth was slow and painful according to medical records.

Only a day after Duncan was admitted to the hospital, he begged hospital staff to give him a diaper because he was too exhausted to make it to the bathroom. Duncan had been projectile vοmiting and experiencing severe diαrrhea since he was admitted and didn’t have much energy.

Family members released over 1,000 pages of medical records which detail Duncan’s treatment for Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. At one point there was hope and Duncan drank Sprite and ate saltines, but his condition quickly declined.

Duncan’s organs eventually began to shut down and his heart rate slowed and then stopped beating.

Duncan wasn’t given an experimental Ebola drug until the last minute, causing his family to accuse doctors of playing favorites. According to Duncan’s nephew, Josephus Weeks, his uncle would’ve received better treatment had he been white and wealthy.

“Had that been another name, you know, or another color, he would probably be living today and he would have survived it,” Weeks told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “And that’s what’s really hurting me the most is because they treated him the way they did because of the color of his skin, and that’s very upsetting and disturbing, and know that you stand a chance if you’re white, but you don’t if you’re black.”
