Police officers in the Irkutsk region opened an administrative case to disseminate false information about the coronavirus. Responsibility threatens a 39-year-old resident of the region, who shared unverified data on social networks.

According to the press service of the regional government, the woman posted unverified information in the thematic chat that the head doctor of one of the regional medical institutions confirmed the diagnosis of coronavirus infection. Moreover, in fact, he was on self-isolation and had no symptoms.

During the check, the author of the post confessed to what she had done and apologized for her act. She faces a fine from 30 to 100 thousand rubles. Earlier, State Duma deputies adopted amendments to the Administrative Code, which toughen punishment both for violation of quarantine measures, and for the distribution of fakes about coronavirus.
