CDC: 150 People Enter U.S. Per Day from Ebola-Stricken Countries--or 4,500 Per Month


(CNSNews.com) - Both Homeland Security Secretary Secretary Jeh Johnson and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Tom Frieden said on Wednesday that 150 people a day arrive in the United States from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea, the three West African countries that have been hit  by the Ebola virus.
"When somebody travels from one of those three West African countries, even through a transit point (in Europe), we know where they're coming from. So we're able to track this. And we know that on average it's about 150 passengers a day," Johnson told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
"The number of travelers is relatively small. We're talking about 150 per day," Frieden told a news conference on Wednesday. He announced that questionnaires and temperature checks will begin at five major U.S. airports that handle "95 percent of all the 150 travelers per day who arrive from these three countries."
See, there's nothing to worry about.  They're going to ask most of them some questions and take their temperatures.  Only one or two that are entering the U.S. through normal channels are slipping through the cracks per day.  No biggie. 
 Now, how's that security thingy working on the Mexican border?  No security thingy? No biggie.  We've never had any problems with before have we?
