DHEC: 9 in SC being monitored upon return from W. Africa

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control are monitoring several South Carolina residents who recently returned from an area overseas ravaged by the Ebola virus. 

Jim Beasley with DHEC confirms nine people statewide are being monitored after returning from West Africa, with three of the individuals from the Lowcountry.

Although officials are keeping an eye on the individuals to ensure they do not show symptoms associated with deadly virus, Beasley says "there are no cases of Ebola in South Carolina at this time."
