Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has denied allegations that the Ministry of Health (KKM) manipulates the data of daily Covid-19 cases, after seeing comments from certain netizens.

He reminds the public not to make such accusations on social media and said that those who are found doing so should be prosecuted under the Emergency Ordinance, reported Sinar Harian.

“Spreading incorrect stories could lead to prosecution by the police. Making false and untrue news is wrong and action can be taken,” he said at a press conference on Monday (19 April).

“After all, what good is it to those who suddenly speak up and make a ‘post’ saying that the number is incorrect and done on purpose? What good is it to those who make the news?”

Ismail Sabri added that he did not want to give a warning, but hoped that the public could help the KKM and the authorities in safeguarding the interests of the people.

He said that there is no reason for KKM to manipulate the data as daily Covid-19 reports are received from all state health departments at 12 noon every day. He added that only the total amount is announced by the KKM.

“As for reports, the use of hospitals and beds are increasing. It means that many are still positive,” he said.

“It shows that the positive case of Covid-19 really happened and there is no reason for the KKM to want to manipulate the numbers.”

“If it’s possible, we want (the numbers) to be zero, it would be better and less work for us. But the cases are on the rise again and this is not only happening in Malaysia but all over the world.”
