Government clarifies rumours on "lockdown"
     Regarding the rumour that the Government may impose a so-called "lockdown" in the coming few days in view of the COVID-19 outbreak, a Government spokesman today (July 21) clarified that the rumour is unfounded.
     “In view of the severity of the epidemic situation, we should fight the disease together. Members of the public should not be misled by fake news, nor should they spread any rumour that can lead to unnecessary fear,” the spokesman said.
     The spokesman urged members of the public to continue to comply with the guidelines on social distancing, go out less and maintain strict personal and environmental hygiene. The public should also stay alert to the Government's announcements on the latest news regarding COVID-19.
