An American cameraman, Ashoka Mukpo (pictured above) working for US TV station, NBC News in Liberia, has tested positive for Ebola, making him the 5th American to have contracted the disease and the first journalist known to have contracted the virus in West Africa.

The 33-year-old cameraman and writer started showing symptoms of the disease on Wednesday Oct. 1st and immediately quarantined himself after suspecting he might have contracted the disease.

He then went to the Doctors Without Borders test center in Monrovia, Liberia where it was confirmed he had the disease. He is expected to be evacuated from Liberia to the United States immediately for treatment.

Four other NBC News team members who have shown no signs of the infection will also return to the US to undergo precautionary quarantine.
