LONDON: Britain began screening passenger arrivals at London Heathrow Airport for Ebola on Tuesday (Oct 14) as the Royal Navy loaded a ship with supplies for epidemic-stricken Sierra Leone. The checks at Heathrow Terminal One will be expanded by the end of next week to the rest of Britain's main air hub, as well as London Gatwick Airport, and Eurostar railway stations linking London and southeast England to France and Belgium. Although there are currently no direct flights to Britain from the worst-affected countries, passengers whose journeys originated there will have their temperature taken and be asked about any potential contact with Ebola patients. Any possible carriers will then undergo a clinical assessment and if necessary be transferred to hospital. to read more: channelnewsasia.com
