The United States tightened restrictions on travellers arriving from the West African countries gripped by an Ebola outbreak, funneling them into five airports with extra health checks.

The Department of Homeland Security ordered passengers whose journeys begin in Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone to fly to New York's JFK or Newark airports, Washington Dulles, Atlanta or Chicago.

There are no direct scheduled flights to the United States from the three countries at the heart of the Ebola epidemic, but travellers from the region can transfer through African and European hubs.
