The Trump administration on Thursday announced that it was building a hospital in Dallas to treat the first Ebola cases in the country.
Trump signed an executive order last week ordering the construction of the Memorial Hospital in Dallas, the second Texas hospital to receive treatment for Ebola.
The hospital, expected to open later this year, will house the Dallas County Health Department and Texas Department of State Health Services.
The Dallas Morning News reports that Trump also signed an order directing the Department of Homeland Security to provide financial aid to the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital and Health Sciences Center in McAllen, which has been treating Ebola patients.
The move is part of a push to stem the spread of the virus in the United States and to make sure that the U.S. has the best medical infrastructure to handle it.
The White House has also announced it will begin accepting federal funds for the construction and operation of a medical care center in Texas.
