New Delhi (Vishvas News): A post has resurfaced on social media which claims that China is seeking court’s approval to kill 20000 coronavirus patients. Vishvas News had earlier investigated the post and found it to be fake.
A post received by Vishvas News on its Whatsapp Chatbot reads: “China seek for court’s approval to kill the over 20,000 coronavirus patients to avoid further spread of the virus.”
Vishvas News investigated and found that the content of the post has been taken from City News website. The report was full of grammatical errors.
The website has been publishing junk news stories earlier as well.
The viral claim was debunked by the government of Singapore as well calling it fake.
If such a decision was to be taken, it would have been featured on the website of “The Supreme People’s Court Of The People’s Republic Of China”. However, nothing as such was mentioned there.
There is no mention such a report on the website of World Health Organization (WHO) as well.
Shamim Zakira, Foreign Editor of Global Times, Beijing, China said while speaking to Vishvas News: “This news is circulating online. and it is a hoax and an absolute case of fake news. Though the situation is grim, yet, life is slowing striding to normality. I must say, the government is accelerating all efforts to contain the spread. People should not spread such fake news.”
Conclusion: Post claiming China seeks court’s approval to kill 20000 coronavirus patients is fake.
