There was a false statement contained in several Facebook posts on the 2019 novel coronavirus infection.

Falsehoods

On 28 Jan 2020, there were posts by several Facebook users claiming that Woodlands MRT was closed for disinfection due to a suspected case of the 2019 novel coronavirus infection. The posts also urged members of the public not to go to Woodlands MRT.

This is not true. Woodlands MRT was not closed on 28 Jan 2020; it was fully operational.
