TRCSL to stop circulation of COVID patient details

The Government is working closely with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL) to stop the social media circulation of personal details of the COVID-19 patients, stated Minister of Mass Media Keheliya Rambukwella.

This was stated as a response to the earlier request by the Information Technology Society of Sri Lanka (ITSSL).

“There are several methodologies being implemented in order to discover those who have been circulating this list and we will request them to stop circulation,” he further stated.

Furthermore, he stated that several measures will be taken against those who violate privacy on social media platforms.
