Solomon Baka Reeves, in a telephone conversation with reporters, stressed that politicizing the pandemic would be dangerous to the country’s safety. Mr. Reeves, who currently resides in New York, USA, wants Liberians to focus on preventing the virus instead of speculating that the Liberian Government wants to use the virus as a “money-making tool”. “That resulted in many (Ebola) deaths in Liberia, so I want to let all of you my fellow Liberians to know that the Coronavirus is deadly and uncontrollable. He appealed to Liberians to stop spreading false information about COVID-19 including misinformation that the “Liberian Government is faking the existence of the virus to get money from the international community”. “We saw how Ebola killed so this should make us to take the Coronavirus seriously and comply with the necessary precautions,” he said.
