Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Thomas Frieden testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Thursday about the Ebola crisis. Witnesses also included Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and Dr. Luciana Borio, assistant commissioner for counterterrorism policy for the US Food and Drug Administration.

Meanwhile, Nina Pham, the Dallas healthcare worker diagnosed with Ebola last week, is being moved to Bethesda, Maryland, for treatment. Amber Vinson, the second nurse to fall ill with the virus, was reportedly transferred to Emory University in Atlanta. Vinson had flown between Dallas and Cleveland and back between last Friday and Monday. Some schools were closed in Ohio and Texas on Thursday, and six crewmembers from Frontier Airlines were put on leave, according to Reuters.

The hearing is taking place the same day a Yale University graduate student back from Liberia was admitted to Yale-New Haven Hospital with “Ebola-like symptoms.”
