After an American man infected with Ebola was allowed to enter the United States on his way back from Liberia, many are questioning the safety measures put in place to prevent the spread of the deadly virus in the country.

Customs agents on Wednesday started handing out fact sheets prepared by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describing Ebola symptoms to travelers coming back from West African nations, but more can be done.
