Amid the widespread of the Coronavirus, a video has gone viral on social media which claims to feature one of the victims of the deadly virus.
The caption of the video reads: “Korona virus, very new deadly form of virus, china is suffering, may come to India immediately, avoid any form of cold drinks, ice creams, koolfee, etc, any type of preserved foods, milkshake, rough ice, ice colas, milk sweets older then 48 hours, for at least 90 days from today.”
NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found the claim attached with the video to be FAKE.
On putting the keyframes of the video through Reverse Image Search on the Russian search engine Yandex we came across the same video on YouTube posted on October 24th, 2019, which was before the first case of Coronavirus got reported in China in December 2019.
The caption of the video in Portuguese read: “Berne ou tapuru é o nome dado à infestação pela larva da mosca Dermatobia hominis”
(Translation: Berne or tapuru is the name given to the infestation by the larvae of the fly Dermatobia hominis)
However, NewsMobile cannot independently verify the origin of the video, but the above information proves that the viral video is not related to Coronavirus.
