The Army is isolating a dozen soldiers at a base in Italy after they spent time in West Africa. There are several hundred U.S. forces helping West African nations deal with the Ebola crisis. Up to four-thousand could be deployed in coming weeks and months.
The Pentagon says dozens more troops are scheduled to be isolated as they are rotated out of West Africa. None of the isolated troops have shown any symptoms of infection. A Pentagon spokesman describes it as a precautionary move of enhanced monitoring.
