Ebola screening start at Heathrow

Heathrow airport will start fever tests on passengers who are flying into the UK from at-risk countries, screening for the Ebola virus.

The tests will be carried out at Heathrow terminal one, as this is the entry zone for the most affected countries.

However Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, admitted that it would be impossible to screen all of the 1,000 people a month, arriving through the terminal. He also stated that passengers from Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia traveling to the UK would be expected to ‘self-present’ themselves as a potential risk.

The Immigration Services Union say that all people should be screened whilst they disembark the plane rather than at border control.

There are no direct flights to the UK from the west African countries that are most at risk.

Less than ten Ebola cases are expected to reach the UK before Christmas, with Heathrow expecting most of those. 

Gatwick airport and the Eurostar plan to initiate screening by the end of the week.
