The government has reaffirmed that updates on the official Facebook of the Ministry of Health and Samdech Techo Prime Minister are the sources of accurate communication, especially on COVID-19.
The reemphasis was made in a notification issued yesterday by the Press and Quick Reaction Unit of the Council of Ministers.
The reaffirmation followed the circulation of unfortunate misinformation and fake news related to COVID-19 on social media intended to create unnecessary misunderstanding and panic among the public.
The ill-willed information dissemination could potentially lead to social chaos, while the Royal Government is working around the clock to contain Cambodia’s first local transmission – the Nov. 28 community incident, added the statement.
To manage the situation, it continued, Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen as well as the Ministry of Health regularly share updates on the issue.
The Press and Quick Reaction Unit called on the public to be careful about the misinformation and fake news by referring to the mentioned sources.
