Chiang Mai says rumours of Covid deaths ‘fake news’

By The Nation




Social media rumours of Covid-19 cases and deaths in Chiang Mai’s Chiang Dao district are fake news, city authorities warned on Monday.


The rumours were investigated by provincial officials and Chiang Mai police and found to be untrue, Chiang Mai vice governor Komson Suwanampa said.


Officials are now tracing the people who posted the rumours, which may have violated the Computer Crimes Act by causing public panic.


Under the act, those found guilty of spreading fake information via social media face up to five years in jail and/or a fine of up to Bt100,000.

Pathetic. 30,000 people die on the roads, thousands more from flu, dengue etc etc etc, but can't have a couple dying of covid. No, that would be loss of face... at least if it got out.
