One of the Armenian TV channels was fined for disseminating fake news about COVID-19, Tigran Hakobyan - Chairman of the National Commission on Television and Radio (NCTR) of Armenia - said during Wednesday’s National Assembly debates.

According to him, from the very beginning of the COVID-19 spread in Armenia and the introduction of a state of emergency, all TV channels responded to the call of the commandant’s office and provided free ad time for social videos and commercials. 

He noted there was an issue with disseminating COVID-19 fake news.

"Nearly 90% of fake news is provided by the guests of the TV channels," he added.
