Mayor Estrañero slams malicious social media accounts for instilling ‘far, confusion, demoralization’ among Tabukeños
Tabuk City Mayor Darwin Estrañero slammed several malicious social media accounts for spreading rumors that he tested positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID19).
Two of Estrañero’s security aides tested positive in the rapid antigen test.
But the Tabuk politiko’s Facebook page announced that Estrañero tested negative in an RT-PCR (saliva test).
In a statement, Estrañero’s Facebook page said that the social media accounts were “feasting on the issue to instill fear, confusion and demoralization” among residents.
The page specifically cited a Facebook account named Gustvao Fernando.
“Gustavo Fernando, a fake FB account, is notorious for posting lies and slander against the City Mayor and Health Frontliners. Said account is used as attack-dog of certain personalities who cannot do it by themselves, but are out to malign and destroy the reputation of the City Mayor and the City Government to advance their own political and business interests,” it said.
