Washington, D.C. (October 16, 2014) - Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) released the following statement today regarding reports that a man who recently travelled from West Africa is being tested for the Ebola virus at a hospital in Loudoun County:

"Since July I have been voicing concern that there is not a sufficient plan in place to deal with the deadly disease. Last week I called on the Obama Administration to appoint one person to coordinate a response. Regrettably, my recommendations have fallen on deaf ears.
