29 October 2014, 09:15 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The results of 9 Kenyans held at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport for Ebola testing will be known soon.

The 9 arrived from Liberia Early Wednesday morning and were immediately detained at the airport's Ebola testing facility to determine whether they have the virus.

Health Cabinet Secretary James Macharia says that results will be known in 6 hours time.

" They arrived safely and are in isolation as we await testing for the Ebola virus," he said.

The 9, he said, will be monitored on a day to day basis for the next 21 days to ensure they do not develop the symptoms, even if they test negative.

" They will be monitored for 21 days at their homes if they test negative and from there we will see their progress," he added.

The Ebola virus has so far hit over 10,000 people, with just over 5,000 dead.

There is yet to be a confirmed Ebola case in Kenya, with the government stating that it has enhanced the levels of checking at all major check-in points in the country.
