Самая серьезная проблема для Америки…

..В данный момент, самая серьезная проблема, — Эбола.

(CNN) — Another American Ebola patient arrived in the United States on Monday, reminding the nation that the virus killing thousands of people in West Africa, will likely continue crossing U.S. borders.
As freelance cameraman Ashoka Mukpo — who contracted it while covering the outbreak’s carnage — was on his way for treatment in isolation at Nebraska Medical Center, government officials talked of shoring up defenses at airports.
“All options are on the table for further strengthening the screening process here in the U.S.,” a federal official said. That includes thermometer checks for fever, something West African authorities are already carrying out.
But finding the right passengers to screen is not so simple.
Direct flights from Ebola-affected areas are rare. Travelers typically take flights that connect through other countries. “Then they come here, so that makes it more of a challenge,” the official said.
Mukpo, who worked for NBC, is not representative of that challenge. He was diagnosed on Thursday in Liberia and left there on a specially-equipped plane on Sunday.
But another patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, may be. To fly from Monrovia, Liberia, the country hit hardest by the epidemic, to Dallas, Texas, where he lies in an isolation unit in critical condition, he had to connect.
But even if Duncan had undergone a temperature screening, it would have turned up negative, and he would have made it into the country undetected.
His Ebola — and his fever — did not break out until he was within U.S. borders.
Screening and monitoring
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is considering enhanced screenings at major U.S. airports, a CDC official said. But it does not appear to have concrete plans in place yet.
Officials want to make sure that the gain of new screenings will be worth potentially disrupting air travel and that they don’t unintentionally increase the risk of spreading the disease.
“The question that’s being considered now and readdressed is that, should there be entry screening of some sort?,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “If you do implement it, what would it look like and what would be the resources that are necessary to implement it? That’s the kind of thing that’s being actively discussed right now.”
Director Dr. Tom Frieden has said that authorities are taking suggestions from Congress, the public and the media. He is expected to brief President Obama on Monday.
