The head of the US infectious disease agency has said he is "confident" the US will not suffer a large outbreak of the deadly virus Ebola, currently devastating countries in West Africa.

Dr Tom Frieden told a Congressional panel the US could expect isolated cases but well-prepared hospitals could prevent a widespread epidemic.

More than 900 have died in Africa.
