‘Ebola Fake News’ Denied, As Heath Minister Rubbishes False Claims

Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah, Liberia’s Minister of Health

The Government of Liberia, through the Ministry of Health as with immediate effect rubbishes false claims being spread on social media suggesting that there is a suspected case of Ebola in the country.

The Ministry of Health informs the public that there has been NO reported case of the disease in Liberia, as is being falsely and maliciously claimed by unscrupulous individuals.

Health authorities have said the details contained in a notice that is making rounds are totally fake.  The authors and those spreading this fake news have attempted to conflict the 2021 Ebola crisis in Guinea with an imaginary tale about suspected cases crossing over to Liberia. This is wicked and untrue.

Both the Minister of Health, Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah and Dr Mohammed Swaray, who are named in the story on state radio denied the report, noting that there has been no such information about this deadly virus being noticed in Liberia, according to a press release issued today, September 28, 2022 and signed by the Minister of Information, Mr.  Ledgerhood J. Rennie.
