Screening for infectious diseases at international airports: the Frankfurt model.

A new pragmatic approach for entry and exit screening procedures at international airports, a new classification system for contacts within the aircraft, and changing the fixed enforcement of standardized community mitigation measures to the implementation of measures that correspond to specific characteristics of individual pathogenic agents are discussed.

Effectiveness of traveller screening for emerging pathogens is shaped by epidemiology and natural history of infection

It is shown that the effectiveness of different screening tools depends strongly on pathogen natural history and epidemiological features, as well as human factors in implementation and compliance, as in the most optimistic scenario arrival screening will miss the majority of cases.

Airport Exit and Entry Screening for Ebola — August–November 10, 2014

Since the program began in August 2014, an estimated 80,000 travelers, of whom approximately 12,000 were en route to the United States, have departed by air from the three countries with Ebola transmission; no international air traveler from these countries has been reported as symptomatic with Ebola during travel since these procedures were implemented.

Ebola virus: unravelling pathogenesis to combat a deadly disease.

Thermal Image Scanning for Influenza Border Screening: Results of an Airport Screening Study

It is suggested that ITIS is unlikely to be effective for entry screening of travellers to detect influenza infection with the intention of preventing entry of the virus into a country.

Fever Screening at Airports and Imported Dengue

Results obtained by capture immunoglobulin (Ig) M and IgG enzyme-linked immunoassay, real time 1-step polymerase chain reaction, and virus isolation showed that 33 (82.5%) of 40 patients were viremic, which can quickly identify imported dengue cases.

Fever Screening and Detection of Febrile Arrivals at an International Airport in Korea: Association among Self-reported Fever, Infrared Thermal Camera Scanning, and Tympanic Temperature

The findings imply that a procedure for mass detection of fever such as self-reported questionnaires and thermal camera scanning may serve as an effective tool for detecting febrile arrivals at quarantine stations.

Accuracy of an infrared tympanic thermometer.

Both tympanic and rectal thermometry are very accurate when used properly, however, the infrared TT produced measurements that were both less accurate and less reproducible when used by nurses who routinely used it in clinical practice.

Comparison of 3 Infrared Thermal Detection Systems and Self-Report for Mass Fever Screening

In a hospital setting, the systems had reasonable utility for fever detection and were suitable for use in the classroom.

EU disagrees on need for Ebola screening at Europe's airports
