FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MINISTRY OF HEALTH’S STATEMENT ON FALSE INFORMATION ABOUT CONFIRMED CASES
The Ministry of Health is aware of a website link and photo circulating via social media indicating that the Turks & Caicos Islands now has 6 confirmed cases of COVID-19. This information is absolutely false as the Ministry has not received any new results indicating this and therefore have not reported such information to any regional or international body. We ask the public to cease from sharing this false information and encourage you once again to only seek information from credible sources locally, regionally and internationally, such as the Ministry of Health via our website (www.gov.tc/moh/coronavirus) and our social media pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; also PAHO and the WHO.
