New Delhi, Mar 20: First it was Bengaluru and now the fake virus has spread to Kolkata and other parts of the country. There are several forwards on the WhatsApp that say that a spray will be used to kill coronavirus.
While there is a message to this effect for Kolkata there is one for Delhi as well. The latest message reads, " hello I kindly request you not to come out of your house after 10 pm tonight till tomorrow 5 am. As there will be spraying medicine in the air in order to kill the COVID-19. Share this information to all your friends, relatives an your families. Thank you, this is for the people in Delhi, entire city, helicopter spraying."
