The Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker, has recently debunked rumours of being infected with the trending Ebola Virus, maintaining that he is hale and hearty.

Previously, reports went viral of the Liberian-born actor having contracted the Ebola Virus in Monrovia during a movie shot.

It went to the point that reports carried it that he was refused entry into Ghana and was in a treatment centre.

However, the veteran actor who denied ever going to Liberia faulted all the rumours regarding them as “extremely inaccurate”.

According to him, he cancelled the Liberia trip in September following the news of the outbreak of the Ebola epidemic, 360nobs reports.

“I read the story, my intention was to go to Liberia to shoot…but I didn’t go,” Vicker said.

Meanwhile, Vicker revealed that he is working with the United Nations response team based in Ghana to help in containment of the disease in the country.

“My heart does go out to all Liberians and I want them to know I have not abandoned them. I am doing all I can to help them in this time of crisis,” he said.
