In a novel way to educate Liberian citizens about the Covid-19 pandemic, President George Weah has released a song to raise awareness about coronavirus.

Weah hopes to appeal to music lovers across the nation of some 4.5 million people to ensure Covid-19 does not spread further than the three cases already confirmed in the capital Monrovia.

With the aftermath of the 2014 Ebola outbreak that killed over 4,000 Liberians, the authorities are not taking the situation lightly.

Correspondent Darlington Porkpa has this report from Monrovia.
