The good news for Ashoka Mukpo, the NBC cameraman who contracted the Ebola virus is in good spirits and appears to be improving his health.
Mukpo, 33, is being treated in Nebraska Medical Center and last week received blood from Ebola survivor, Dr. Kent Brantly. The patient posted on Twitter on Monday afternoon: ‘Back on twitter, feeling like I’m on the road to good health. Will be posting some thoughts this week. Endless gratitude for the good vibes.’
Now the bad news is, it looks like Ashoka will be looking at half a million dollars in medical bills. Ouch! A fundraising site posted this weekend in attempts to help Mukpo. The message read: ‘We are reaching out to help cover the enormous projected cost of Ashoka’s medical care, and to allow for his family to aid in, and properly support him during his recovery.’
As of right no, the funds raised stood at just less than $48,000. Every little bit would help.
Stay tuned as we’ll keep you update on the Ebola latest.
