According to NST, KJ said that the ministry has lodged several police reports against these groups, but they were still at large and have persisted in spreading fake news while threatening efforts in public health.
In his tweet, he said: “The Health Ministry has lodged several police reports on anti-vaxxers. We hope that follow up action (investigation, prosecution and others) could be sped up. This group continues to spread fake news, threaten public health and is annoying.”
Last Friday, Khairy on his Twitter announced that the ministry has been instructed to lodge police reports as well as complaints to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission on those it viewed as spreading anti-vaccine statements.
Guys, stop spreading misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine! It’s very unethical!
