Freelance cameraman Ashoka Mukpo is now Ebola-free.

It’s still not clear how Mukpo came with with the virus. He may have contracted it when he was cleaning a car in which a person infected with the virus had ridden.
Mukpo received a blood transfusion from Dr. Kent Brantly, the American missionary who also survived the disease thanks in part to a blood transfusion that he received from a fellow Ebola survivor. Brantly has also donated blood to Dallas nurse Nina Pham, one of the two nurses who got Ebola from Thomas Eric Duncan.
