As the incidence of coronavirus disease increases, so does the number of people who believe in conspiracy theories, said Health Minister Arsen Torosyan.
"It's worrying because people could lose vigilance. This means that in the near future all this can contribute to having more cases of infection. "We will definitely be chipped", "There is no such disease", "It does not threaten us", "It is a global bluff", "It is to get funding from abroad" and other similar expressions can be found in the posts of individual users. Such opinions are widely covered in the media.
We do not want our population to lose vigilance. If this trend continues, we will have to pass on the data of those who spread false and unfounded rumors to the law enforcement agencies to find out who is behind them and what is their motive to harm the citizens", the minister said.
