REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – President Barack Obama has stressed that the Ebola crisis is a top national security priority, and now U.S. authorities are responding to calls for tighter security at U.S. airports.

As early as this weekend, five of America’s airports will begin screening body temperatures of passengers arriving from countries with Ebola.

Those airports include Kennedy International Airport, Washington Dulles International, O’Hare International, Hartsfield-Jackson International, and Newark Liberty International.

The move comes on the same day a Liberian man visiting the U.S. died of Ebola in a Dallas hospital.

Liberian authorities say he lied on a questionnaire about having contact with an infected patient before flying to the United States.
