WASHINGTON: ‘ CHUCK HAGEL ORDERS ALL US TROOPS RETURNING FROM WEST AFRICA TO BE QUARANTINED ‘

#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON – October 29 – Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered all U.S. troops returning from Ebola response efforts in West Africa to undergo a 21-day “controlled monitoring regimen.”

“The secretary believes these initial steps are prudent given the large number of military personnel transiting from their home base and West Africa and the unique logistical demands and impact this deployment has on the force,” said Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby in a statement Wednesday.
