Gossipers in Dubai to be temporarily imprisoned if caught spreading rumors


Gossipers in UAE are warned against spreading false information in the country amid the coronavirus spread.

If found guilt, the person circulating fake news will also face legal actions and be temporarily imprisoned.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) posted on its social media accounts advising residents not to spread rumors on any type of information unless published by verified sources.

The government agency stressed that spreading fake news about Covid-10 is causing more harm than the virus itself.

Some of the rumors in the UAE have already been debunked by the authorities include UAE’s number is higher than officially recorded, that a sneeze of an infected person can contaminate people up to eight meters away, and that a coronavirus patient can die within days of contracting the virus.
