(CNN) – Donald Plusquellic mayor of Akron, Ohio, was supposed to appear on CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" alongside Summit County Ohio Public Health medical director Dr. Margo Erme to talk about the city's response to Ebola.
But minutes before the segment began, the mayor walked away, over a disagreement with Erme about proper health procedures.
"We had a spirited discussion on where an infected Ebola patient ought to be treated," Erme said of the disagreement. "I gave my opinion based on our discussions with the hospital and the CDC and the Ohio Department of Health, knowing that we do not have any Ebola cases here. And he offered a differing opinion."
There is growing concern that Akron, Ohio, will have to deal with an infected Ebola patient, after a Dallas nurse traveled to the city just days before she was diagnosed with the deadly disease.
At the moment, "we do not have any cases of Ebola virus disease in the community," Erme said. "We also have monitored our contacts to the sick health care worker and none of them have shown any signs of any illness."
