(NaturalNews) After vehemently denying that Ebola would ever come to the U.S., the federal government is now saying that the deadly hemorrhagic disease is here and we all need to get used to it. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell recently told the corporate media that there are probably more cases of Ebola that we don't even know about yet, and that the country needs to start preparing now.

In response to accusations that she has basically been kicking back and doing nothing while Ebola continues to spread, Burwell explained that she has been attending daily Ebola meetings for the past several months. She also reiterated the administration's confidence in the airport screening procedures that already allowed at least one Liberian national, the Dallas Ebola victim, to breach our borders undetected.

"We had one case [of Ebola] and I think there may be other cases, and I think we have to recognize that as a nation," stated Burwell at a recent media breakfast hosted by the journal Health Affairs.

Burwell's comments come as the Obama regime announces new screening protocols at U.S. airports, the full details of which have yet to be clarified. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest stated during his daily briefing that five U.S. airports -- JFK in New York, Newark in New Jersey, O'Hare in Chicago, Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta and Washington Dulles -- will begin taking the body temperatures of travelers arriving from West Africa.

These same travelers will also be taken to special screening areas for questioning and other forms of testing, according to NPR.

"We believe these new measures will further protect the health of Americans, understanding that nothing we can do will get us to absolute zero risk until we end the Ebola epidemic in West Africa," added Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director Tom Frieden in a conjoining statement.

Screening potential Ebola victims after they've arrived is useless

In Burwell's view, the best defense is properly screening West African travelers at their point of departure rather than after they arrive in the U.S. This makes sense, as screening potential Ebola victims after they have already come into contact with other travelers will do nothing to prevent an outbreak.

"The most important place with regard to taking care of screening is actually at the point of departure," explained Burwell. "And that's been in place for many months and as we know, we have a case. That case sadly is deceased. But for many months, we did not have a case that entered the country."

Well that's reassuring -- we were good for most of the past few months, with the exception of the Dallas Ebola victim, so screening is working, right? Apparently, Burwell is unaware of the roughly 100 other people in the Dallas area who are now being monitored after possibly coming into contact with the Dallas Ebola victim.

Secondary Ebola transmissions, after all, can multiply rather quickly, which already appears to be the case with several Texas police officers and others showing possible disease symptoms, according to reports. Burwell brags about 80 people having been blocked from leaving West Africa, a sign that screening is working. But all it takes is one patient to spark an outbreak.

"Let's not forget who started this by bringing hot Ebola patients into America and putting them in unsuitable (not level 4) facilities," reminds one Washington Examiner commenter, referring to the Obama regime.

"Then refusing to shut down flights from [West] Africa. Then bumbling the contact-tracing and quarantines. Then LYING about [Ebola's] transmission and incubation."
