WASHINGTON (AP) - The new White House "Ebola czar" starts work today with an afternoon meeting with President Barack Obama and top aides, as well as various White House teams leading the government's response to the deadly virus.

And air travelers coming to the U.S. from Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea will have to arrive at one of five U.S. airports, where there's special Ebola screening.

Those airports include New York's Kennedy airport and Washington's Dulles.
