In an update from an earlier incident that was widely shared over local social media, it has been revealed that the viral story involving an elderly man who had recovered from Covid-19 but passed away before his family could collect him has been revealed to be fake.
This was announced at 3:50pm by the official Ministry of Health social media portal.

The story, which was previously covered to highlight the preciousness of spending time with family, was unable to be verified and has been deemed fake. WORLD OF BUZZ had tried to contact the original author of the story for further confirmation on facts previously, but was unable to obtain any response from the original author of the post.
If you missed the story, here’s a screenshot of the post that went viral on social media.
This post garnered a lot of sympathy from netizens initially with many sharing their pity for a man who allegedly passed away.
Likely facing heat after this investigation, the lady has since removed her post and made her profile private.
