US journalist with Ebola to arrive in Nebraska Monday

• http://news.yahoo.com

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.
