BOSTON (CBS) – A NBC News cameraman in Liberia, originally from Providence, Rhode Island, has been diagnosed with Ebola.  Ashoka Mukpo, 33, was on a freelance assignment for the network in Monrovia, reporting on the Ebola outbreak.  His father, Dr. Mitchell Levy, said Mukpo will be transported to the isolation unit at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha Sunday, the same facility where Holden Dr. Rick Sacra was treated for Ebola last month.  According to NBC, Mukpo started showing symptoms on Wednesday, when he ran a fever and began feeling tired and achy. He was tested for the virus Thursday and it came back positive just under 12 hours later, the network reported on its website Friday.
