The CDC is confirming the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States.  CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden says the patient tested positive for the deadly disease after traveling from Liberia.  Frieden says the patient developed symptoms five days after arriving in Texas.  The patient is an isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.  

U.S. hospitals have already treated a number of patients who were diagnosed with Ebola in West Africa, where the virus has killed more than three-thousand people.
