CDC: 150 People Enter U.S. Per Day From Ebola Stricken Countries, Or 4500 A Month


There’s been a lot of talk about Thomas Duncan. But he was just one of many…
( – 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.

Thank You CNS and Nickarama.
