The government on Wednesday called on the public to ignore online rumours, supposedly giving details and the date of the Compulsory Universal Testing scheme for Covid.

A spokesman said the scheme would be a large scale operation, which called for precise execution; and that the government had to plan carefully to ensure that sufficient ancillary measures and manpower were in place.

"We regret and condemn those who spread inaccurate information online to mislead the public," he said.

The spokesman said the scheme was still being refined, and once confirmed, it would be announced and widely publicised.
