UAE ministry rubbishes rumours about ‘another lockdown’ – News

Source link


The ministry called on residents to obtain information from its official sources and not to circulate rumours or news issued by fake accounts.

A tweet attributed to the UAE’s Ministry of Interior (MoI) warning about “another lockdown” is fake, the MoI has clarified. Taking to social media on Saturday, September 26, the ministry posted a screenshot of the fake tweet with a ‘FALSE NEWS’ stamp above it.

The fake tweet reads: “(Sic) Due to steadily increasing coronavirus cases, we’ve decided impose another lockdown with immediate effect starting from Sunday and urge everyone to self quarantine. Stay at home and stay safe.”

The ministry called on residents to obtain information from its official sources and not to circulate rumours or news issued by fake accounts.

In April, the UAE Cabinet had adopted a decision, stipulating a Dh20,000 fine for publishing or circulating fake and misleading health information.
