John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, on Saturday began at enhanced screenings at U.S. airports as the fear of Ebola Virus grows.

Medical teams at New York's John F Kennedy (JFK) airport, armed with Ebola questionnaires and temperature guns, began screening travellers from three West African countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

Kennedy was the first of five U.S. airports to step up screening protocols. Washington Dulles, Newark, Chicago O'Hare and Atlanta international airports will employ the same screenings as those put in place at JFK.
