U.S. to install quarantine stations in 5 airports #Ebola


Quarantine stations at 5 US airports: One person has come to the United States and come down with Ebola here. Authorities want to keep it that way. To that end, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Wednesday beefed-up measures at five of America's biggest, busiest airports aimed at preventing the deadly virus' further spread. While talk about preventing Ebola's spread abounds everywhere from coffee shops to TV news, this intervention won't affect a lot of people. It applies only to about 150 people a day, by CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden's estimate, arriving in the United States after having recently traveled from Ebolva-ravaged West African nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. These travelers will get special treatment, including having their temperature taken and answering questions about whether they've been exposed to anyone with Ebola. The idea is to stop anyone with warning signs from getting past the airport gates, and into the U.S. public, before they can possibly spread the virus any further. But, Frieden cautioned, this isn't some sort of magic solution.  more at url
