Wake Up, Singapore issued Pofma correction direction for falsehoods about KKH



SINGAPORE - Alternative news site Wake Up, Singapore (WUSG) has been issued a correction direction by the Pofma Office over falsehoods it had published about KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH).

In a statement shortly after midnight on Sunday (March 27), the Ministry of Health (MOH) said it instructed the Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Act (Pofma) Office to issue a correction direction to the news site for publishing a false account of a 20-weeks pregnant patient who had allegedly suffered a miscarriage after waiting four hours to see a doctor at KKH.

Investigations by KKH confirmed that the patient had been seen by a doctor within an hour of her arrival at the hospital in February, and that she did not suffer any miscarriage, said MOH.

KKH had identified the patient in question based on a screenshot of a hospital bill accompanying WUSG’s posts, which contained discrepancies with the patient’s account of events, added the ministry.

MOH noted that WUSG had on Friday published further posts on its Facebook and Instagram pages stating that it had been lied to by the patient and that her recollection was false, and that the news site had apologised to KKH for publishing these allegations.

WUSG’s apology came after KKH made a police report earlier that day and put out a statement that the claim by the pregnant woman was “incorrect”.
