Canadian government finally steps in and decides tougher measures in the verge of an Ebola outbreak in some African countries but also separate cases in Europe and USA

Screenings, more staff for Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax, Ottawa, Calgary

Canada will step up border screening to try to prevent an Ebola importation to this country, federal Health Minister Rona Ambrose says.

"Our government will be taking the additional step of taking targeted temperature screens," she told the House of Commons on Wednesday, though she offered no detail about what that would mean or whether it would be only at airports or all border crossings.

Good morning Telos, good to see you.

As fa as border checks go, if the infected takes tylenol before boding and then before they get off the plane at the destination along with severe allergy eye drops, what good are these border checks?

This sounds like putting a band aid on gangrene.

Please stay well and keep us informed my friend.

Hey antar, good morning to you too. Honestly? I don't know what's going on. And it might be just a band aid as you say but in today's climate, with the scare going on about Ebola, any such news is a good news. Sometimes people need to hear that the government they've voted for is stepping in and is doing the best to contain the outbreak. So far we've not had any cases in Canada. Few suspected cases that turned out to be just a normal flu. So let's hope it stays that way.
