The American cameraman with Ebola is set to return to the U.S.
Ashoka Mukpo, the 33-year-old NBC News freelance cameraman who was diagnosed with the disease while on assignment in Liberia, will be back in the states on Sunday, the Washington Post reports.
Mukpo, NBC chief medical editor and correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman plus three other crewmembers will be quarantined for 21 days upon their arrival in the U.S.
Mukpo’s father, Dr. Mitchell Levy, told the Post he is proud of his son for working in Liberia, but added that, “as a father, I’m very nervous about the fact that he has Ebola. I think we’ll all feel relieved when he’s on that plane.”
Levy appeared on the Today show Friday, where he said that his son is “scared and worried” but is in better spirits with the knowledge that he’s going home.
