WASHINGTON, DC -- U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, today issued the following statement about the Ebola diagnosis that was confirmed in Dallas yesterday.

“All of us are deeply concerned about the terrible outbreak of Ebola in Africa and the fact that there is now one confirmed case here in Texas.  Our prayers are with those who are suffering.  Earlier today I spoke with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and she offered her assurances that HHS and the CDC are acting vigorously to take every medical step to contain and stop the spread of the Ebola virus," said Sen. Ted Cruz. "Vigilance is still very much required, but present information seems to indicate that a more widespread outbreak in America remains unlikely.  I am proud of our soldiers from Ft. Hood fighting the disease in Africa and the exceptional medical staff we have in Texas working to limit its spread, and I would urge those in the Dallas area and statewide to heed close attention to information being distributed by the medical community.”
