Scammers sent text messages about coronavirus vaccines and virus tests, and the Ministry of Health reminded the public not to be fooled.

本地出现诈骗份子发出冠病疫苗和病毒检测的短信,卫生部提醒公众不要上当。

Recently, there have been circulated text messages falsely claiming to be from a pharmaceutical company, and the sender alleged that they were authorized to provide the recipient with a coronavirus vaccine.

坊间近日流传谎称是来自药剂公司的短信,发件人指他们获得授权,为收件人提供冠病疫苗。

There are also some fraudulent calls and text messages, claiming that the recipient is in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19, and asking the recipient to provide personal or financial information in exchange for a COVID-19 tester and test results.

也有一些诈骗电话和短信,称收信人和冠病确诊病患有近距离接触,要求收信人提供个人或财务资料,以换取冠病检测仪和检测结果。

The Ministry of Health emphasized that it did not send these text messages, nor did it authorize any pharmaceutical company to contact the public directly, and therefore urged the public not to respond to these text messages.

卫生部强调,它并没有发这些短信,也没有授权任何药剂公司直接联系公众,因此劝请公众不要回应这些短信。

In addition, the Ministry of Health will not ask the public for personal and financial information via telephone, and the public should not respond to it.

此外,卫生部也不会通过电话向公众索取个人和财务资料,公众不应回应提供。

If the public receives any email or call trying to obtain personal or financial information, they should first verify the authenticity of the content. The hotline of the Ministry of Health is 11800-333-9999.

公众若接到任何试图索取个人或财务信息的电邮或来电,应该先查证内容真伪,卫生部热线是11800—333—9999。

The Ministry of Health also issued a notice on the website that the Coronavirus vaccination plan is being carried out one after another, and medical personnel will take the lead in vaccinating. The authorities have started sending text messages to allow eligible people to sign up for vaccinations.

卫生部也在网站上发出通知,冠病的疫苗接种计划正在陆续开展,其中医疗人员将会率先接种。当局已开始发送短信,让符合条件的人报名接种疫苗。

The authorities reminded that if the public receives a text message from the Ministry of Health, they should not forward it to others, because the registration URL in the text message is unique. The public should also ensure that the suffix of the URL in the short message is “.gov.sg” before clicking on it.

当局提醒,公众如果收到来自卫生部的短信,不应转发给他人,因为短信中的报名网址是独特的。公众也应确保短信内网址的后缀是“.gov.sg”才点入。

If the public has any questions about the vaccination plan, they can also call the hotline of the Ministry of Health.

公众如果对接种计划有任何疑问,同样可拨打卫生部热线查询。
