The flow of bad and toxic information has negative impacts on the ideology of cadres, party members and people; causing confusion, wavering, reducing people's confidence in the Party and State's leadership.
Recently, on social networks appeared a number of pages impersonating senior leaders of the Party, Government as well as agencies and units of the Party and State. Typically, in April 2019, an account appeared on Facebook, "Propaganda Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam" which gave many false information.

Right in Hung Yen, localities have seriously and drastically dealing with false information related to Covid-19 epidemic. Typically in Tien Lu district, the district police fined VND 12.5 million against Nguyen Thi Diu, born in 1996, living in An Trang village, Trung Dung commune for spreading false information about the epidemic.
