LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- In the last week, the Ebola virus has prompted many conversations. Many people are concerned that the virus will eventually spread to Arkansas from neighboring Texas.
On Friday, Senator Mark Pryor called on the Obama administration for better monitoring of the situation, saying there have been "missteps."
"Arkansans have a right to be upset about some of the mistakes that have been made that have allowed some cases to come into this country," Pryor said.
Pryor urged changes in five different areas of focus, including travel restrictions, better communication and better monitoring of America's five main points of entry, which handle more than 90 percent of entrances from Africa.
"I think it's imperative that we have CDC nurses and doctors at our ports of entry, not just the customs and border patrol," Pryor continued.
