Palace Charged Suspects Behind Fake News That Lead to “Vaccination Chaos”
The Malacañang Palace has identified and charged the suspects behind the fake news that lead to the “vaccination chaos” to vaccination sites.
Five people have been identified as the perpetrators of false information about the government’s COVID-19 vaccination program, according to the Palace. Unvaccinated individuals would not be permitted to leave under enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), according to the article, thus many flocked to Manila and Las Pias City in Metro Manila, as well as Antipolo City in Rizal.
In addition, the Palace reiterated that “no vaccine, no ayuda” means that if you have not been vaccinated against COVID-19, you will not receive assistance. According to the police, five people have been charged for making illegal statements, according to presidential spokesperson Harry Roque.
“To the peddlers of fake news, mahahanap po kayo, sasampahan po kayo ng kaso, ikukulong po kayo,” Roque added.
Previously, it was reported that unscrupulous persons were planning to sabotage malls and vaccination locations. During the Laging Handa public briefing, Deputy Chief Implementer of the National Action Plan Against COVID-19 Secretary Vince Dizon said they learned that fake news caused buses and vans full of people to throng the malls and vaccination sites of Las Pinas, Antipolo, and Manila.
According to him, the criminals plan to sabotage the government’s efforts by setting it up the day before the NCR’s Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ). This is also a public service announcement, according to Dizon, because they, Sec. Carlito Galvez has received an unverified report and needs to look into those distributing misleading information.
He made it clear that all they want is instability, and he believes the government’s immunization would fail. He acknowledged that erroneous information regarding “walang bakuna, walang ayuda” was distributed by someone, and that people flocked to many spots across the NCR.
