In 2014, there were three cases of Ebola reported in Texas that were associated with the 2014-2016 West Africa Ebola Epidemic. The initial case was the first travel associated case of EVD diagnosed in the United States. Two nurses who cared for the sick Ebola patient (initial case) contracted EVD, marking the first known transmission of EVD in the United States. The patient died, both nurses recovered. Since that point, there have been no new cases of Ebola reported in Texas.
