He is expected to arrive Monday. The 33-year-old Mukpo was working as a freelance cameraman for NBC in Liberia last week when he became ill. NBC reported Sunday that Mukpo is en route to Nebraska for treatment. Mukpo’s family said Friday he is going to Omaha. Meanwhile, hospital officials in Delaware said late Sunday they are observing a child for possible signs of Ebola infection, but that the CDC has declined to test the patient. Bayhealth Kent General Hospital in Dover said in a statement that a child from Liberia was admitted to the hospital Saturday and placed in isolation. “The child is past the 21 day maximum incubation period and it has been determined by the CDC that the likelihood of Ebola infection is extremely low,” the statement said. “Since the likelihood is low, the CDC declined to test this child for Ebola.The patient will continue to be observed in the hospital until the CDC and the infectious disease physician determine it is safe for the patient to be discharged from the hospital.” More
