PID warns against spreading rumours

The Press Information Department (PID) of the government has asked the people of the country not to circulate or share any false

or misleading news regarding coronavirus on the social media.

“All are requested to verify any information found in social media before sharing it,’’ said Press Information Department in a circular issued yesterday.

“If anyone broadcasts or shares any misleading information (on COVID-19) from an unsubstantiated source, then the government will take measure accordingly as per the Digital Security Act,’’ the PID circular said.

“Keep yourself away from any rumor,” the Press Information Department  advised the people.
