People have been spreading coronavirus misinformation in the borough’s parks.
There have been reports of ‘COVID denier’ posters and anti-vaccine material being taped to benches and trees in the borough parks.
The Council has been adamant on removing all posters when they are reported.
Cllr Roberts, Leader of Richmond Council has said that below.
“We are on a knife edge. Our hospitals are struggling, and people are dying. Over the last few months, I have noticed an increasing toxicity around stories, particularly on social media about Coronavirus. Now we have posters in our parks.
“Now, I completely understand that people are weary of hearing of the disease after it’s dominated headlines for the last nine months. Combined with the huge personal sacrifices we have all made.
“These idiots creating false propaganda are not scientists. They are conspiracy theorists.
If you see these posters, please report them to 020 8891 1411.
