On March 25, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) announced in a press release that they were monitoring four people who had recently returned from the West African nations of Guinea and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Though it has been largely ignored by the national media, both countries are currently experiencing deadly Ebola outbreaks, that began in February.
The OHA stated:
“Beginning March 4, CDC has required all airlines to supply contact information for all U.S.-bound travelers who have been in Guinea or Democratic Republic of the Congo in the last 21 days — the largest known incubation period for Ebola. U.S.-bound travelers who have been in affected countries are routed through six international airports: Dulles in Washington, D.C.; John F. Kennedy in Queens, NY; Newark Liberty in Newark, NJ; O’Hare in Chicago, IL; Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta, GA; and LAX in Los Angeles, CA. Upon arrival, they are interviewed to determine if they are symptomatic and to confirm their contact information. If they are symptomatic, they will be offered medical evaluation.”
It can take up to 21 days for symptoms of Ebola to appear, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
*Not surprisingly, the mainstream news media has chosen to bury the story...always protecting their fragile open-borders leader.
