(CNN) – A patient has been admitted to the emergency room "after reporting possible exposure to the Ebola virus," Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas said in a statement Wednesday. "Right now, there are more questions than answers about this case," the hospital said. "Our professional staff of nurses and doctors is prepared to examine the patient, discuss any findings with appropriate agencies and officials."

Asked about the case by reporters, CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said the patient "does not have either definite contact with Ebola or definite symptoms of Ebola."
