IPOH: A viral message alleging that the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital here is at breaking point due to the increase in Covid-19 cases is fake.

Hospital director Dr Abdul Malek Osman in a statement on Thursday (May 13) said there was no truth to this and that the situation at the hospital was under control and hospital services were provided as normal.

"The public has been advised not to simply spread unverified messages as this can cause unnecessary panic and confusion.

"People are advised to always follow SOPs and limit their movements at public places during this movement control order," he said.

Messages have been making rounds on social media stating that the hospital had been receiving many Covid-19 patients and that there was no place left in the hospital to admit patients with other illnesses.
