New Delhi: The Central government is constantly tracking passengers arriving in India from the West African countries affected by Ebola, an official said here.

Mandatory self reporting is in place, the official said while adding ‘health officers posted in identified international airports all over India are screening passengers getting off aircraft'.

Till now all those arriving have been found to be healthy, the official said.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Sunday denied reports that a Chennai resident, who landed at Chennai airport from Guinea on August 9, had been afflicted with the Ebola virus.

India has nearly 45,000 nationals living in the four Ebola-affected West African nations.
