PSA Condemns “Fake News” Over Influx of People at ID Registration in Bulacan
The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) condemns the spread of “fake news” after the people of Bulacan flock at the national ID registration site.
The PSA has blamed the influx of people in the national ID registration area in San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, for the “false news.” According to the survey, tt received more than 1,600 registrations than anticipated.
As a result of the inability to enforce social distancing, the operation was called off early. It was “false news” on cash distribution, according to Unang Hirit’s interview with PSA Assistant Secretary Rosalinda Bautista.
Aside from the cash assistance distribution, there was a rumor that it was the last day of the registration period, so people flocked in droves. He estimated that about 4,000 people had gathered in the city.
“Ang nangyari nagkaroon ng misinformation. May nagbalita na may magbibigay ng pera doon at huling araw na ng pagpaparehistro. Dahil doon sa mga balitang iyon, kumalat na fake news, kaya nagdagsaan ang mga tao,” he said.
Meanwhile, in touch with a San Jose del Monte official, it was reported that an investigation into who started the fake news is already underway. It also reassured the public that national ID registration will continue.
