(Harrisburg) -- Governor Corbett and two of the state's top health officials will discuss steps Pennsylvania is taking to prepare for any cases of the Ebola virus. 

The governor will be joined by Secretary of Health Michael Wolf and Physician General Carrie DeLone at a briefing this morning. 

Ebola is transmitted through direct contact with bodily fluid. A Liberian man who traveled to Dallas has died from the virus in the U.S. and two Dallas nurses who had contact with him were recently diagnosed.
