IPOH: The Haven All Suite Resort in Tambun has lodged a police report over an audio clip that claimed there is an outbreak of Covid-19 within the hotel.

Its chief executive officer Peter Chan said there have been no Covid-19 cases at the premises, and hopes the police will locate the wrongdoers.

"The spreading of fake news is harmful to our business, more so at this time, when the tourism and hospitality sector is going through the most challenging times.

"We have at all times enforced frequent and high standards of cleaning and sanitisation, and we will continue to do so, though given that the wide open and natural space here itself is a boon to safety from viruses," he said.

"We request and seek the cooperation of the public not to share such unverified or fake news, or ignore them, or better still, help us establish justice and the truth," said Chan, who added that his team has checked and verified on the MySejahtera app on May 5 that there were no cases at the premises.

"The hotspot tracker also confirmed that there were no cases within 1km of our premises," he said.

"Any official updates or information pertaining to Covid-19 clusters should be from formal channels, including the state Health Department's Facebook page," he added.
