Another American Infected, NBC News Cameraman, Tests Positive for Ebola

Another American has been infected with the ebola virus while working in Liberia.

The 33-year-old man, who was not identified by name, was working as a freelance camera operator for NBC News as part of a crew of five that featured the network’s top medical reporter Dr. Nancy Snyderman, who has been in Monrovia reporting on the outbreak. That makes the cameraman the fourth American to contract the often-deadly virus in Liberia. Two doctors were in infected in July, Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, and a third, Dr. Rick Sacra, was diagnosed last month.


The cameraman will be flown back to the States for treatment, NBC said. Snyderman and the rest of the crew will also be brought home to the U.S. via private jet. Once they arrive, they will be placed on quarantine and monitored for 21 days. The news comes just two days after the first case of ebola was diagnosed inside the United States.
