Spreading of False Information to Create Public Panic

Although social media has helped people from all over the world to share news instantly and counter false news from mainstream media of countries that are being controlled by their autocratic rulers, there are also attempts of users using it to create public panic.

Accordingly to Yahoo!SG Newsroom, someone has tried to spread rumours about food from Thailand.

We hope the culprit will be taken to court soon.

The AVA has confirmed with the Thai embassy that the following message is untrue:

Emergency notification:
Try not to eat canned food especially those canned fruits manufactured from thailand . There were 200 over HIV carriers instructed by their leader to contaminate the products of the canned food factory by their blood.
The information was confirmed by the government this morning. In order not to let the people get infected after eating, many types of canned food had been removed from the shelves of the supermarkets.such as longan, lychee, rambutan and mango pudding.
Pls send to people you care. Prevention is better than cure! Pls don't buy canned food from thailand.

Please refrain from spreading it further.
