Khairy orders MOH to lodge police, MCMC reports against fake news on Twitter

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 9): The Ministry of Health (MOH) has been instructed to lodge a report with the police and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) regarding the dissemination of fake news regarding Covid-19 and vaccination on Twitter Spaces, recently.

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said in a tweet yesterday that he had instructed MOH to act against the social media user who allegedly spread fake news.

"There is a time to educate and engage. But there is also a time to enforce the law. I have asked for a report to be lodged against @khalids with PDRM & MCMC for spreading fake news regarding Covid-19 vaccination. Enough lies," he said.

Earlier, a 31-second video by a Twitter user with the account @khalids on a list of school teachers who died due to vaccination, went viral.

However, a check by Bernama on the Twitter user's account found that it is not accessible.
