So if you are leaving the country, you are screened. If you are coming in, you are also screened. And we are focusing more on passengers coming from the countries that have been affected by the outbreak - that is Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. But that doesn't mean we are not also screening other passengers, we are also screening them, because we have flights like Air France that will make stopovers, like in Guinea."9.
