There is a message circulating on social media that a 1000 bedded #COVID19 care hospital has been established by Indian Armed Forces near Airport terminal T1 at Bangalore.
The forwarded message is as given below:
PRO Defence mumbai on twitter has clarified this viral message as fake and has no basis. It could be easily understood that the same message is circulating in karnataka with only change in the location (Mumbai to Bangalore). The circulated message in karnataka read – The state of the art, 1000 bedded #COVID19 care hospital by Indian Armed Forces has been established near Airport terminal T1 at bangalore. Hence it is a fake Message, as Armed forces haven’t setup any covid Hospital at airport terminal, Bangalore.
Police are investigating into the matter to identify and take action on the culprits who spread such fake and misleading messages on social media. Also people are requested to clarify with appropriate authorities before forwarding any such fake claims they receive on various social media platforms.
