Separating fact from fiction on coronavirus

Coronavirus is being discussed and talked about almost everywhere. As the virus is unfurling rapidly, people are getting anxious and restless. Along with the virus, there are rumors spreading, creating distress and fear among the population. In today’s age, everyone has access to social media. Be it politics or sports or technology, nearly everything is addressed on social media. Most people turn to Instagram or Facebook for their daily dose of news. Social media cannot be trusted with any piece of news as people have a tendency of circulating rumors making the audience apprehensive. This eventually outcasts the actual details and attributes of the news that were meant for the people.


As coronavirus is fanning out, there are various rumors attached to it. Today we are here to inform you about the actual aspects of this virus so that you are well equipped and educated about coronavirus. This will help you in making a well-informed decision for you and your family and prevent coronavirus from growing.
