New Jersey Customs Agent: We're Not Prepared for Ebola

October 9, 2014

A federal customs official at New Jersey’s Newark International Airport says that they are not trained or equipped to face passengers who might be infected with Ebola. President Barack Obama finally announced that five of the nations largest international airports will begin Ebola screenings in an effort to identify possible Ebola carriers and prevent an outbreak here at home. Federal officials plan to implement the new screening regime at New York’s Kennedy International, Washington D.C.’s Dulles, Chicago’s O’Hare, Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta, and Newark’s Liberty International. But a new report by a Customs agent at Newark’s Liberty Airport says they are not ready at all if Ebola happens to show up in New Jersey. “They are assuring the public everything is being done, but it is not,” the agent told New York’s NBC 4. The agent, who wanted to stay anonymous, noted that no doctors or CDC personnel had been assigned to his airport for any flights from Africa or countries with connecting flights to Ebola effected areas. The incident that most sparked the agent’s alarm occurred last Saturday when a passenger from Liberia arrived sick and vomiting on a flight in Newark, New Jersey.
