Pre-flight screening ‘useless’

17 Sep, 2014

Virologist Heinz Feldmann says the Monrovia airport is the place he felt least safe:

They are checking your temperature three times before you get into the airport, but if you look at the people that do this kind of work, they don’t really know how to use the devices … They are writing down temperatures of 32°C, which everybody should know is impossible for a living person. All the checks they do are completely useless because they are done by people who are not well trained or overwhelmed by the number of passengers. It is just a disaster, and it needs to be fixed.
