DALLAS — A patient in a Dallas hospital has been confirmed to have the Ebola virus, News 8 has learned.
That person has been held in "strict isolation" as he or she was evaluated for possible exposure to the deadly Ebola virus.
This is the first case of Ebola confirmed in the United States.
In a statement issued Tuesday night, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said the patient was admitted based on symptoms and "recent travel history."
Zachary Thompson, the director of the Dallas County Health & Human Services, said Tuesday morning the Center for Disease Control was mobilizing as if the patient tested positive for the virus.

"Strict isolation" at the hospital. What about before?
Such a meaningless assertion.
