An article reporting that there is a Niger-
ian Ebola patient in T&T, which is currently
circulating on social media sites is a fake.
The article, which uses a T&T Guardian
reporter s name under an old-fashioned
T&T Guardian masthead, claims a Nigerian
doctor had entered the country without a
passport and was being treated for Ebola at
the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Com-
Managing director of Guardian Media Ltd
Lisa Agard said yesterday the management
of the newspaper was disgusted by not only
the contents of the article but the fact that
the creators had tried to attribute it to the
She said: "It was designed to spread fear
and panic to the population of T&T.
"We are particularly aggrieved by the fact
that someone would use the Guardian s (old)
masthead and fonts and also falsely represent
that a journalist attached to the Guardian
newspaper was the author of the false arti-
cle," Agard said.
"We view this development so seriously
that we are going to report the matter to
the police for them to ascertain whether
any crime has been committed under the
Computer Misuse Act, and it is our fervent
hope that the authorities would be able to
identify who perpetrated this malicious
move to scare the population and damage
the reputation of the Guardian newspaper."
Aside from grammatical errors and incon-
sistencies in the date, the article gives incor-
rect information about the virus itself.
Nevertheless, the T&T Guardian news-
paper received several calls from concerned
readers about the story.
One woman noted the errors but said she
still had to check and was a little afraid after
The T&T Guardian posted messages on
its Web site and Facebook page yesterday
morning to assure readers the story was a
hoax and to ask them to ignore it.
Police last night said that 35-year-old Insaff
Nawaz Mohammed, who was reportedly beat-
en to the head with an iron pipe on Thursday,
died at hospital around 6 pm.
Investigators visited the Penal father of four
succumed to his injuries at the Intensive Care
Unit of the San Fernando General Hospital.
Ddoctors said he had remained comatose since
Police were told Mohammed, who was beaten
with a length of pipe at his home at SS Erin
Road, Batchiya Village.
Up to yesterday, no one had been arrested
for the crime which investigators believe was
a robbery. They said Mohammed had won a
large amount of money at Club J s Bar and
Lounge on the SS Erin Road.
A police report said around 1.20 am Thurs-
day, he arrived at his home, a few houses away
from the bar.
While he was waiting for his common-law-
wife Dianne Ramlochan to open the door,
someone struck him on the head and continued
to beat him. He was taken to hospital, where
he underwent emergency surgery.
One daily newspaper reported yesterday
Mohammed had died Thursday but CID inves-
tigators---Ryan Ramsingh, PC Riad Hosein and
PC Shazim Khaleel and PC Rennie Isahac---
went to check his condition shortly after noon
yesterday but he was still on life support.
Police said Mohammed, who is unemployed,
was released from prison four months ago after
serving a nine-month sentence for robbing
someone of a gold chain.

'Guardian' story on T&T
Ebola patient a fake
A screenshot of the bogus article purporting to be a T&T Guardian story being circulated
via social media.
Health Minister Fuad Khan was quick
to deny that the virus had entered the
"There is nothing like Ebola in T&T and
if people on social media are saying
something different maybe they mean a
person named Ebola, because the virus is
named after a river and people probably
named their children after the river too,"
Khan said in a telephone interview.
"There is no disease called Ebola in T&T
at this time," he added.
