UK, US, Canada to screen air travelers for Ebola

Following the death of Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan in Dallas, Texas on Wednesday October 8th, US, UK and Canada have started airport screening of air travelers for Ebola. 
The US started theirs in five airports yesterday October 9th. It is not yet clear if this screening is strictly for travelers from Ebola-hit countries or every foreigner that passes through their airports. Possibly the former.
Meanwhile, the condition of the Spanish nurse who contracted Ebola from Spanish missionaries who were repatriated from Liberia and Sierre Leone to Spain, is said to have worsened. The world is panicking.
