Indonesia arrests six over coronavirus internet hoaxes

Six Indonesians have been arrested for allegedly spreading misinformation online about the deadly coronavirus, police said on Tuesday (March 10), as the Southeast Asian nation’s confirmed infection cases jumped.

A woman in Indonesia’s second-biggest city Surabaya was arrested on Monday for spreading inaccurate claims on Facebook that a patient was being treated for the virus in the city, police said.

Five others were also detained for spreading false information on social media, including claims a Muslim woman flying to Saudi Arabia for a religious pilgrimage had died suddenly from the virus at Jakarta’s international airport.
