Fake News On Pandemic Should Not Be Spread
Updated on 11 January 2022

The Federal Emergency Crisis and Disasters Prosecution has informed the public that false information and rumours must not be spread on the preventive measures taken against the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement released by the Prosecution, "In light of the recent circulation of photos and videos on social media spreading information from some COVID-19 patients on the Al Hosn application, accompanied by comments and songs mocking the precautionary measures and calling on others to flout them, threatening the national efforts to address the pandemic, we, therefore, call upon members of the community to refrain from this behaviour, which is punishable by the law."

The Prosecution urged the public to be mindful when spreading information on COVID-19 via social media.
