The Costa Rica airport has experienced an increase in the number of travellers with medical emergencies and the number is expected to increase again as more people are expected to use the facility.
The number of people arriving at the airport from the country’s neighbouring countries has more than doubled in the past six months to about 5,500 people, according to Costa Rica International Airport.
Costa Rica has more Ebola cases than any other country.
More than 2,300 people have tested positive in the country.
There were more than 500 confirmed cases of the disease in the Costa Rica, according the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The country has the highest number of cases of Ebola in the world with more than 1,000 people dying.
Mr Hines said the airport had increased its staff to deal with a rising number of patients and had made changes to its security measures.
Mr Funes said he was disappointed that the number was so high.
“We need to find ways to get people to a safe place and get them through airport security,” he said.
“And we need to do it as quickly as we can.”
Costa Rica is one of the countries hardest hit by the epidemic, with nearly 200,000 confirmed cases.
The World Health Organization has declared a state of emergency in the Central American country.
Health experts have warned that a severe outbreak could hit the Caribbean region in coming weeks.
