International News: United States to begin redirecting flights from Uganda for Ebola screening

Posted: Thursday, October 6, 2022. 1:50 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Effective immediately, the United States will begin redirecting flights from Uganda to 5 U.S. airports to screen for Ebola virus, The Washington Post reports.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will conduct temperature checks and risk assessment on anyone who has been in Uganda over the previous 21 days, the incubation time for the Ebola virus.

In addition, local authorities will follow up with them for 21 days after their arrival.

They will be redirected to JFK International Airport in New York, Washington-Dulles International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, Chicago-O’Hare International Airport, and Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Ebola Virus Disease is a rare and often deadly hemorrhagic illness that causes fever, headache, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, loss of appetite and gastrointestinal symptoms as well as unexplained bleeding.

Uganda is also conducting exit screening for the virus and other African countries in the region are also checking arrivals for symptoms of the virus.

There have been 44 confirmed cases, 10 confirmed deaths and 20 probable deaths to Ebola in Uganda.
