Call bullshit on Pence. Said on faux that we have

Last edited Sun Mar 1, 2020, 05:06 PM - Edit history (1)

screened 47,000 people at airports in US for virus. I flew 5 legs in US during this time and never saw any inkling of screenings. Could he mean international flights?

On edit...
Guess I was wrong...
https://www.washingtonpost.com/transportation/2020/01/30/us-health-officials-expand-screening-new-coronavirus-20-airports/?outputType=amp
The CDC began screening at Los Angeles International, John F. Kennedy International and San Francisco International airports earlier this month as concerns about the new coronavirus began to increase. Last week, the agency began enhanced screening of passengers at two additional airports, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson and Chicago O’Hare International.

CDC officials said the five airports were chosen because roughly 90 percent of the passengers arriving from Wuhan either on direct or connecting flights flew through them. But efforts to ensure all arriving passengers came through those airports proved difficult. Expanding screening to 15 additional airports where the CDC has quarantine stations in place poses less of a logistical challenge and will enable officials to reach 95 percent of travelers coming from China, officials said.

The screenings, which focus on travelers from Wuhan, involve having them fill out a form detailing their travel and contacts while in Wuhan and whether they are experiencing any symptoms. They also have their temperatures taken.

Here are the 20 airports where travelers will undergo additional screening:

Los Angeles International
John F. Kennedy International
O’Hare International
San Francisco International
Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson
Anchorage Ted Stevens International
Boston Logan International
Dallas-Fort Worth International
Detroit Metropolitan
El Paso International
Honolulu International
Houston George Bush International
Miami International
Minneapolis-St. Paul International
Newark Liberty International
Philadelphia International
Puerto Rico’s San Juan International
San Diego International
Seattle-Tacoma International
Washington Dulles International
In addition to expanding screening, Messonnier said health officials would distribute 350,000 cards to travelers arriving from China with information about the coronavirus and where to call if they think they may have symptoms of the virus. The cards were already being distributed to passengers who arrived at airports that did not have enhanced screening in place.

6. But if that's true, why would no reason need report it?

They stopped flights in from China. Could 47,000 have come in already? Only a couple thousand evacuees?

10. I think that's right

But that is a very small number for airport screening. In contrast, the number tests conducted has been very small. The tracking of contacts doesn't look particularly strong either. Apparently there is shortage of test kits among other things. It is difficult to get a patient tested. There is a shortage of just about every resource, including trained personnel, you could possibly require in an epidemic because this administration has underfunded this public priority.

7. In this case, "screened" probably means walking through a temperature sensor.

You could easily walk right through, only to develop a fever and other symptoms later. He is giving a false sense of security.

Lots of people could have temp. And then what, pull them aside and do a real screen? And the person waits??

11. Here:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/02/19/health/coronavirus-airport-temperature-checks/index.html

"One of the enduring images of the current coronavirus outbreak is a space-age looking thermometer pointed at an airplane passenger.

Eleven airports in the United States are using these temperature checks as part of expanded screening for novel coronavirus, and those measures might seem reassuring. If someone doesn't have a fever, it seems like they're fine -- right?

Not so fast.


While the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has screened more than 30,000 passengers in the past month, not a single US coronavirus case has been caught by airport temperature checks, according to a CNN investigation.

There has long been debate about the usefulness of airport temperature checks, but this recent experience at US airports, plus a new European study, seem to point in the direction that they don't work.

Earlier this month, British researchers published a studyshowing that temperature checks will fail to detect a coronavirus infection nearly half the time."...(more)

I remember going through a temperature sensor station years ago. I want to say it was in Japan at Narita airport.

12. BS! They check temperature. That is not a test.

We now know that you can be asymptomatic and contagious.

handled at a separate building called the Humphrey Terminal. The Kid works at Lindberg which is the General Aviation Terminal. So this went into effect after her duty hours expired. She goes back on duty in four hours.

15. A broad definition of "screening"...

Do you have a fever? - No
Been to China lately? - No

You're good to go.

student this weekend. He had flown Tokyo to Houston. He told him he was asked three times in three different ways if he had been to China. That was it.
