NBC’s chief medial correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman and her crew returned to the U.S. on a private charter last night, several hours after their colleague Ashoka Mukpo arrived for treatment of ebola at a hospital in Nebraska.
In a note to staff obtained by TVNewser, NBC News president Deborah Turness writes that Snyderman and her crew are “feeling well and are in good health.”
Even thought they are deemed “low risk,” the team will not come to work, and will be quarantined at home for 21 days where their temperatures will be taken twice a day. Turness writes: “As you saw in Dr. Nancy’s superb reporting from Liberia, she and the team have been incredibly cautious about protecting themselves and minimizing risk, and will continue to do so upon their return.”
Mukpo joined the NBC News team in Liberia as a freelance cameraman just last Tuesday. He began feeling sick on Wednesday and on Thursday was diagnosed with ebola.
