Terming rumour as more danger than virus, Awami League General Secretary Obaidul Quader has said, “Rumours are being spread on social media and different online platforms with ill motive.

He made the comment in a press briefing at his official residence in the capital on Saturday.

The Road Transport and Bridges Minister said, “We are noticing with extreme concerns that a quarter of people have continuously been spreading rumours on social media. They are spreading such incident even it did not occurred. These rumours and propaganda are motivated. In fact, rumours and propaganda are more dangerous than virus.”

He further said, “Domestic violence is increasing alarmingly amid coronavirus pandemic which will help spreading the infection swiftly. I urge all to keep patience and maintain sober during the Ramadan.”
