US journalist with Ebola to arrive in Nebraska Monday


The Nebraska Medical Center on Sunday tweeted "Patient to arrive tomorrow," without specifying an exact time.

Earlier the hospital had announced on Twitter that it had "received a call from the US State Department letting us know that we will be receiving a second Ebola patient. Possibly on Monday morning. Our 40+ member team with the Biocontainment Unit is ready."

The hospital has already treated Rick Sacra, a doctor who overcame the virus and was given the experimental drug TKM-Ebola.

Mukpo, 33, is the fourth American to contract Ebola in Liberia and had worked on humanitarian projects in Liberia for several years.

The Nebraska hospital is among just a handful able to handle Ebola patients at this time.
