Criminal charges laid against man for spreading fake news


The Eastern Cape Department of Health has condemned a video doing the rounds on social media where a man is calling on citizens to refuse being tested for Covid-19.

The man, who identifies himself as Stephen Donald Birch from Cape Town says the tests are contaminated.

A criminal charge was laid against Birch on Monday morning.

The spokesperson for the Eastern Cape Department of Health Sizwe Kupelo says they condemn this video spreading fake news.

He says getting tested for the virus is the only way to flatten the curve.

The National death toll for COVID19 rose to 11 on Sunday night.

In the Western Cape, nine patients are currently receiving treatment in ICU.

On Monday, the government rolled out a massive screening and testing programme countrywide.
