Stopping Ebola carriers from entering the United States is made that much more difficult because symptoms are slow to show up, according to Dr. Ian Lustbader, a gastroenterologist and professor of medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center.

"Part of the problem is as you say there's an incubation period," Lustbader told Rick Unger and John Fund on the Friday edition of "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Someone can be infected in anywhere from three or four days up to a couple of weeks before they really show symptoms. When they show symptoms, they're really infectious. "

On Friday, the White House said it had no plans to enact travel bans following the arrival of an Ebola-infected man in Texas.

"There is in place a very sophisticated, multi-layered screening system ... to ensure that the traveling public is safe," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. "Those screening protocols begin at the point of departure in West Africa."

The protocols are supposed to stop passengers with symptoms of Ebola from boarding.
