Arrivals level at Dublin Airport

An overwhelming majority of Irish people believe that immigrants arriving in Ireland should be required to undergo a medical examination.

According to a poll in the Irish Independent, 76 percent of people said that in view of the tuberculosis outbreak in Cork last week, immigrants should be obliged to undergo an examination.

Said one respondent, "In Asia, during swine flu, they scanned all people arriving for temperatures, a simple, non-discriminatory practice, that put the public's health and safety first.”

Only 24 percent of those polled felt that screening would have limited, if any, impact.
