When you have yourself surrounded by people dressed in full shielding suits treating you, then it is not hard to figure out that you are in serious trouble and so it was not hard to figure out for AshokaMukpo too who saw it coming.
After evading from Ebola, the popular American video Journalist allowed to leave for home. He has contaminated himself after working in virus-influenced area Liberia. In a press interview, he explained the horrifying experience when he was under treatment with medical personnel all suited up in all packed gears to prevent the infections spreading.
Mr. Mukpo while addressing the press, said, “The only thing you can see is their eyes. And they’re dripping with chlorine.” “You just realize what a bad situation you’re in when your care-givers have to come in with such an incredible amount of protection,” he further added.
He was a freelancercinematographer for one month working for NBC and many other known media outlets after which he infected with the virus. He further added that what he had was “pure fear”. The 33-year-old journalist was aware of the possibility of his death. He had a weight loss of 6.8kg in one week because the terror could not let him eat.
The only thing, which made him survive, was his own will power. Mr. Mukpo told what he said to himself,“I’m going to make it, I’m not going to give in to fear, I’m not going to give in to depression, embarrassment; I’m just going to live.”
