American NBC Freelance cameraman, 33 year old Ashoka Mukpo has been diagnosed with the Ebola virus in Liberia.

“Man oh man, I have seen some bad things in the last two weeks of my life,” he posted on Facebook last month from the Liberian capital of Monrovia. But little did he know that he will be a victim of the epidemic he has been a spectator to.

Mukpo was hired Tuesday to be a second cameraman for NBC News Chief Medical Editor and Correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman. Snyderman is with three other NBC News employees on assignment in Monrovia, reporting on the Ebola outbreak. By wednesday, Mukpo began feeling sick and quarantined himself. The following day, Mukpo journeyed to a facility in Monrovia to be tested and was found to be infected with the virus.

The amount of virus in Mukpo’s body is low and doctors are looking forward to a good prognosis. He will be returning to the U.S. for treatment along with the rest of his team, even though they have not shown any signs of being infected.

Mukpo will be the fifth American infected with Ebola and evacuated from West Africa. He has been working in Liberia on various projects for the past three years.
