Stop spreading rumours, panic buying: Minister

Minister of Health Dato Seri Setia Dr Haji Mohd Isham bin Haji Jaafar urged the public not to spread rumours and fake news and requested to refrain from panic buying. The minister said, “Spreading rumours will not help us at all. It is more helpful to pray for the recovery of the patients rather than spreading fake news.” He urged the public to read and listen to formal news sources like the Ministry of Health. “We are transparent and have nothing to hide,” the minister told a press briefing yesterday.
