MOH denies reports of full hospitals, rising virus death toll

Authority says voice recording meant to cause fear, panic.

THE Health Ministry (MOH) has clarified that an audio report of the hospitals being full is an old recording that was circulated in 2021. The ministry stated on Facebook that the recording was shared to spread fear and panic.

“The public is urged not to spread this false news that could cause panic among the public and to always be vigilant against the spread of Covid-19.

“Ensure that you take public health precautionary measures by always observing the 3W approach: Wash hands frequently with soap and water, wear a face mask in public places or if symptomatic, and heed warnings from the MOH. Avoid crowded places, confined spaces, and close conversations,” the ministry said.

In addition to claims that hospital beds are full and that there are a rising number of people who were dead on arrival at the health facilities, the voice recording also claims that a new disease from Africa was spreading, leading to quick and sudden deaths.
