"The updated logo which bore the information "COVID-19 CASE UPDATE, 0 NEW CASES CONFIRMED, 29TH MAY, 2020, TOTAL CONFIRMED-0, DISCHARGED-0, DEATHS-0" was not created by the state government and "We want to make it unequivocally clear that the state government did not authorize anybody to create any such COVID-19 update logo on its behalf and we urged the general public to disregard the said update", the statement said.

The statement notes that the said logo was created by mischief makers who are bent on creating unnecessary controversies and confusion at this critical time of the pandemic.

The government urged the good people of the state to continue to observe all the preventive measures and health protocols earlier issued to them on COVID-19.
