SINGAPORE – The Ministry of Health (MOH) has invoked Singapore’s fake news law against a local website for false claims about the effectiveness of Covid-19 vaccines, and the safety and efficacy of ivermectin in preventing and treating Covid-19.
Health Minister Ong Ye Kung instructed the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (POFMA) Office to issue a correction direction to the Truth Warriors website, MOH said on Sunday (Oct 24).
This means the website is required to publish the correction notice at the top of each webpage containing the falsehoods.
