Ebola at home

It is clear with the first case of Ebola in the United States that we must start taking drastic steps at airports to stop this disease. We need scanners that can detect body temperature, we need doctors at the airport and we need to further medically screen any passenger who has visited the infected countries. This is a true homeland-security issue.

With the onset of swine flu, every passenger in Cuba was interviewed by doctors or nurses at the airport. To this day, the doctors and nurses remain at Cuba’s airport. Surely we can do this to protect our citizens and the world.
