ATLANTA — Ebola screenings are set to begin Thursday at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta and the head of the Centers for Disease Control said isolating patients who may have traveled to West Africa should be the focus of healthcare workers across the country.
Dr. Thomas Frieden addressed the media Monday from CDC headquarters in Atlanta. He said screenings began at New York City’s JFK airport Sunday and 91 people had undergone evaluation. Of those, none of them had fevers and screeners determined none of them had been exposed to Ebola.
Frieden emphasized again that there would be no benefit to halting travel to and from the impacted region.
