Hontiveros: Do not panic. Do not share fake news about coronavirus
Senator Risa Hontiveros has appealed to the public to stay vigilant and avoid spreading fake news about the coronavirus. Hontiveros said sowing panic would be harmful to public health.
“Mga mahal, huwag po tayong magkalat ng fake news tungkol sa 2019 Novel Coronavirus galing sa Tsina,” she wrote on Facebook.
“Sowing panic will be detrimental to public health. I-verify ang source bago i-share online. Magsimula din tayo sa hygiene: parating maghugas ng kamay at magtakip ng bibig kapag uubo,” she said.
