The father of NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, who has been recently stricken with Ebola virus disease, is one of the most prominent intensive care physicians in the United States.
Dr. Mitchell Levy is the director of medical intensive care unit at Rhode Island University Hospital and nationally known for his work in the patient safety area.
Dr. Levy reported today in a television interview that his son will be transferred to the University of Nebraska, one of the four most specialized treatment centers in the country for patients with Ebola and other contagious and infectious diseases.
Certainly, having a father involved who is highly skilled in taking care of critically ill patients and treating cardiac and renal failure can only increase the chances for recovery.
