Stop Circulating Fake Covid-19 News

SABC NEWS: The circulation of unconfirmed news on social media claiming that the Overport area, in central Durban, is a COVID-19 “hotspot”, has been condemned.

Reports allege that the area has been identified as an “infection danger-zone”, however, Mohammed Ismail of eThekwini Secure and Action Citizens Coalition says people need to stop circulating unconfirmed news and wait for authorities to ascertain whether or not the area is a risk. Ismail says while the claims cannot be confirmed, non-compliance to health measures by some members of the community is also an issue.
