Urvashi Rautela has joined the league of 'WhatsApp' intellectuals! Wondering why this special honour has been bestowed on her? Why Bollywood's sexy siren is in news? Well, in case you are too busy for your Monday routine, worry not! We did the essential work for you and what we found out will leave you baffled! Without further ado, let us unveil the mystery of Rautela's latest gyan on coronavirus. Her latest Instagram story is fuel for factcheckers. Her absurd claim is not about some unknown cure of the covid-19 disease. Rather, it is about some government action that nobody knows about.
"this is information to all my contact frnds that dont come out frm 11pm to 5am coz indian govt is going to spread CV vaccine gas inside the contry, through airplanes. #So every1 is requested to stay inside n also dont hang ur clothes outside. Tq (sic)," posted Rautela on her Instagram account. The authoritative, serious tone of the message came at a time when the Government of India has declared coronavirus and disaster and over 6,000 people have died due to the COVID-19 disease.
So, we decided to factcheck her Instagram claim and this is what we found out. No, the Government of India or any other state has not launched any measure like that! Yes, the public places are being santized and fumigated but no planes are involved in 'spreading the vaccine' anywhere in India. This is a FACT! So, worry not. You can do your laundry and dry your clothes out in the Sun. What you need to do is to avoid non-essential travels. Yup, may sound boring for some, but staying home is the best thing you can do. Practice social distancing as much as possible. Avoid touching hard surfaces while in office and elsewhere. Carry sanitizers and alcohol swabs to maintain personal hygiene. In a related development, as the economy stares at the coronavirus havoc, filmmakers are busy scripting movies that can chronicle this immediate health crisis. Reports suggest production houses are making a beeline registering for a movie related to the disease.
Angrezi Medium, which released during the coronavirus spread recorded an unexpectedly low box office collection as the state government are asking movie theatres and malls to shut down. The movie reportedly will re-release after the coronavirus threat is tackled with.
