President Barack Obama announced on Monday that the United States will soon implement a new set of protocols to screen suspected Ebola patients so they can’t get off airplanes and enter American airports.
The same Customs and Border Patrol Agents who sift through cargo and luggage for contraband will be the first line of defense, inspecting passengers who arrive from Ebola-ravaged countries and identifying some for further screening.
Obama highlighted his government’s ‘all-hands-on-deck approach’ to stopping a pandemic, but insisted that ‘the chances of an outbreak, of an epidemic here are extraordinarily low.’
The U.S. is ‘going to be working on protocols to do additional passenger screening both at the source and here in the United States,’ Obama said in his first Ebola-related public comments, after hearing from national security and homeland security aides and government public health experts.
