U.S. to screen airports

8 Oct, 2014

Federal officials announce that temperature screening of passengers arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea will start at New York’s Kennedy International as early as this weekend, and at Washington Dulles International, O’Hare International, Hartsfield-Jackson International and Newark Liberty International next week. About 90% of passengers from the three countries arrive via these five airports, with 43% flying via Kennedy alone. Of 36,000 passengers who left the three countries in the past two months, about a quarter came to the U.S., and 77 had Ebola-like symptoms but none had the virus.
