(CNN) – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Tom Frieden said Wednesday that banning all travel to West Africa to prevent the spread of the Ebola virus would cause more problems than it would solve.
"It makes it hard to get health workers in, because they can't get out," he said. "If we make it harder to respond to the outbreak in West Africa, it will spread not only in those three countries (in West Africa hit hardest by Ebola) but to other parts of Africa and ultimately increase the risk here" in the United States.
(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.

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."
The patient had reported being in the Dallas apartment where Duncan had been staying and having "some contact" with Duncan's family members, Frisco Fire Chief Mark Piland told reporters.
The patient exhibited several possible symptoms of Ebola, Piland said.
