Investigation

Vishvas News used Google search to investigate the viral post. On searching by typing related keywords, we found a news on naiduniya.com. The report published on October 7, 2020, stated that a notice was issued by Dr. Sanjay Goel, Commissioner Health Services after a video of Gwalior CMHO Dr. Manish Sharma went viral. In the video CMHO, Dr. Manish Sharma told about the seven exercises and claimed that doing these will prevent coronavirus. While he was narrating those procedures, some of his people also made a video from his mobile, which became increasingly viral and aired on many news channels, but some doctors said that the claim made by the CMHO was not scientifically authentic. When this matter reached Bhopal Health Department, Health Commissioner Dr. Sanjay Goyal told that the CMHO has spread misleading information among the general public. Read the complete news here.

During the investigation, we found a notice on the website of the Health Department of Madhya Pradesh. It can be seen on page number 76. It was written that while showing the seven procedures of yoga it was stated that these exercises will prevent coronavirus and this statement is misleading and not in accordance with the guidelines of ICMR India and the State Government. Read the full notice here.

Vishvas News spoke to Manish Sharma, the CMHO of Gwalior, who is seen in the viral video. He told that a notice was issued to him for this video. To which the answer was given.

Vishvas News has asked different doctors to know the truth of the viral video. IIT-BHU Ceramic and Hydrogen Scientist Dr. Pritam Singh said that the claim being made in the video is not at all logical.

Dr. SK Pathak, a chest and TB specialist at Breath Easy Hospital, said that this video is fake. This practice has nothing to do with medical science.

We scanned the profile of the Facebook user Molik Sood who shared the viral post. We found that the user is a resident of Guna. This account was created in May 2015.

Conclusion: Vishvas News investigated the viral post and found it to be fake. We found that the person in the video is Dr. Manish Sharma, CMHO, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. A notice was also issued to him by the department for sharing such a misleading video.
