Cockroach facebook joke is not funny says Ministry

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Cockroach facebook joke is not funny says Ministry

Ministry lashes out over cockroach X-ray
April 23, 2018

The Ministry of Health has called on Facebook users to immediately stop posting baseless information that misrepresents the truth and affects the honour of the health sector while also causing public confusion.

The appeal from the Ministry of Health was made after the Facebook page Merl Komsan posted an article with an X-ray image of a human with a cockroach on the shoulder.

The Facebook post said that a man living in Prey Veng province was told by a doctor that a cockroach was living inside his body, causing him to have pain in his shoulder.

The post went on to say that the man travelled to India for medical treatment, where doctors told him there was no cockroach in his body, explaining that the bug was instead inside the X-ray machine.

The Ministry of Health said in a statement issued on Friday that the Facebook post, which went viral in Cambodia, was a fake news story and should not be shared.

The ministry added that it is seeking to take legal action against the person responsible for posting the fake news story.

Messages to the Merl Komsan Facebook page went unanswered yesterday.
However, the management team of the Facebook page made a public apology on their page, saying that the X-ray image was not from the Prey Veng provincial hospital or any provincial hospital in Cambodia.

The apology added that the post was just a joke, made after their team copied the article and photo from another Facebook account.

Shit like this and the utter stupidity of the people that believe this will be the reason Cambodia takes a play out of The Chinese playbook and bans Facebook completely.

Because the machines there do not have the special Norton Antivirus detecting program that detects cockroaches .
