Fake news

 
June 12, 2021

The lethal coronavirus has had disastrous effects on every sector. In our country, it has claimed the lives of more than twenty thousand people. In order to deal with the situation, the government launched the vaccination drive where it has been administering the Covid-19 vaccine to everyone above 18. The vaccine is free. The vaccination campaign was going alright until people started posting unverified news on social media. A couple of weeks ago, there was a post which wrongly suggested that a vaccinated person will die within two years.

Such posts create confusion among people who are still hesitant to get vaccinated. It was good to note that media outlets clarified that such posts were fake. It is important for the government to create awareness programmes and encourage people not to fall for such misleading posts.
