Opposition politician Alexander B. Cummings has disclosed that his wife has been tested positive of Covid-19 while attempting to travel to the United Sates of America.
According to Cummings, who is Political Leader of the Alternative National Congress (ANC), on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, he embarked on a visit to Nimba County for five days but had to return to Monrovia on Sunday, April 11, 2021 to attend the graduation ceremony of a vocational institute and to spend time with his wife, Teresa, before her flight on the evening of Monday, April 12, 2021 to see their grandchildren.
Cummings intoned “On my way to Nimba this morning, I received a call from my wife. She had tested COVID positive and would not be traveling tonight. She is however fine as am I.” As a result of the test result, Cummings has immediately halted his trip to Gbarnga and returned to Monrovia. “I will be taking the Covid test as well tomorrow and have self-quarantined.”
The ANC leader however urged everyone to continue taking precautions and remember COVID is real in a statement released. He himself tested positive before but stayed quarantined till he was fully told to go home.
However, CPP Executive Mo Ali sees the test differently and politically, in a Facebook post he stated ‘So while on his county tour, they say Mr. Cummings wife has COVID-19. The intent was for Mr. Cummings to abandon the tour so it can’t put a dent in Pres. Weah’s visit.‘
