Texas To Get Ebola Treatment And Containment Facility


The state where the nation’s first Ebola cases were diagnosed and treated will soon have an infectious-disease treatment and bio-containment center. Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Tuesday announced a partnership between three health-care facilities in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area to form an Ebola center in North Texas.

And the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has been designated a treatment and infectious-disease bio-containment facility in Southeast Texas.

ABC’s Jim Ryan has the story from Dallas/Fort Worth.
