Earlier, Reuters reported that U.S. health specialists were set to head to Dallas to see a patient who was being evaluated for Ebola.
On Monday, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas said that an unnamed patient was being tested for Ebola and has been placed in "strict isolation" because of symptoms and travel history.
It has not yet been confirmed that the latest Ebola case is that same patient. The CDC is holding a news conference shortly to elaborate on the most recent diagnosis.
There have been no confirmed cases of Ebola being contracted in the United States, but several American aid workers in West Africa have been brought back for treatment of the disease.
