Spreading fake COVID-19 stories and figures is the highest point those relishing the unfortunate health crisis can get.
We wonder when they would introduce a form of ethics into their agenda.
Perhaps we would be asking too much from them if we demand this level of decency from a group which lacks this quality.
Of course we know this nonsense is being spearheaded by persons with a burning desire to profit from spreading fear and panic.
It is unfathomable what end such a crazy pastime seeks to achieve. We can bet however that it is anything of National interest value.
At a time when the World Health Organization (WHO) Director General has called for both national and international solidarity in confronting COVID-19, it is amazing that for some high infection and death rates should be a matter of joy. We are elated that the police have mounted a search for the bad nuts behind the costly pranks.
When they are arrested the court should decide their fates in a manner which would serve as important deterrent. We have absorbed too much of such costly pranks and now reached a ‘no more’ level.
