Sen. Baldwin says there is "no risk" of Ebola spread in the U.S.

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Senator Tammy Baldwin was in our studio Thursday morning, and she talked about the spread of Ebola in West Africa.

She says if there was a new case of Ebola in America, we would not only want to treat the patient, but make sure there is no risk of spread.

Right now she says there is no risk of Ebola spreading in the U.S., even though we are treating Ebola patients here.

"I hope that because of our very advanced medical system that we'll be able to help stem the growth or the spread of this disease, it's obviously very serious, fatal in many cases and that's very scary," explains Baldwin.

Senator Baldwin also says she feels great pride in American doctors who are volunteering to help with the outbreak in Africa.
