Unfortunately, there is too much fake news around the world about the novel coronavirus. So called ‘experts’ upload videos to YouTube or write articles on their blog on how to stay safe from the coronavirus. However, there is not a hint of a truth. It is just done with the intention of getting clicks on their blog and views on their videos.
Apart from generating clicks or views, many tried to sell medicine or other forms of treatment claiming to be effective against the virus. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) was forced to intervene. They issued various statements regarding the fake news surrounding the novel coronavirus. The WHO along with national governments are calling on social media websites to curtail the spread of fake news.
