US may start screening air passengers for Ebola

Looks like the
US is considering screening passengers from
Ebola hit countries before they enter the
country. This is coming about a week after a
Liberian man entered the country with
Ebola. President Obama said yesterday that
though the likelihood of an Ebola outbreak in
the US is “extremely low’ but they have to react.
“We’re also going to be working on
protocols to do additional passenger
screening both at the source and here in
the United States. Countries that think
that they can sit on the sidelines and just
let the United States do it, that will result
in a less effective response, a less speedy
response, and that means that people
die.”
“And it also means that the potential
spread of the disease beyond these areas
in West Africa becomes more imminent,”
President Obama said at the White House
briefing with US health officials
The Liberian man who became the first case of
Ebola diagnosed on American soil, Thomas Eric
Duncan, is in a critical condition in a hospital
isolation unit in Dallas.
