Homeland Security To Restrict West Africa Travelers Entry To America

While President Obama has declared his experts say banning travel from the Ebola-stricken West African nations is not the optimal route to stopping the deadly virus' spread in the US, Homeland Security has a different plan as Rep. John Conyers comments:

  • *U.S. SAID TO RESTRICT TRAVELERS FROM EBOLA REGION TO 5 AIRPORTS
  • *U.S. TRAVEL RULE WOULD AFFECT LIBERIA, SIERRA LEONE, GUINEA

Good thing Ron Klain is involved in the decision-making process... oh wait...

  • *TWO PEOPLE BRIEFED ON DHS PLANS COMMENT ON PENDING ANNOUNCEMENT

As Bloomberg reports,

Homeland Security Dept will require airline passengers originating from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea to enter U.S. through airports with Ebola-screening measures, according to statement from Rep. John Conyers.

 

U.S. enhanced-screening airports: New York’s John F. Kennedy International, Newark Liberty, Washington Dulles, Chicago O’Hare, Atlanta Hartsfield; about 94% of fliers from affected areas fly through those airports

But in irony of ironies, Rwanda has started screening US and Spanish arrivals fo Ebola too... (as WaPo reports)

According to the U.S. Embassy in Rwanda, the tiny land-locked East African nation has begun screening passengers from the United States and Spain for the deadly virus.

From a note on the embassy's Web site:

Visitors who have been in the United States or Spain during the last 22 days are now required to report their medical condition — regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms of Ebola — by telephone by dialing 114 between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. for the duration of their visit to Rwanda (if less than 21 days), or for the first 21 days of their visit to Rwanda. Rwandan authorities continue to deny entry to visitors who traveled to Guinea, Liberia, Senegal, or Sierra Leone within the past 22 days.
