Fact Check: In this era of Coronavirus Pandemic, dealing with false information and fake news on social media is also no less of a challenge. During the Corona Crisis, fake news is being widely shared on social media platforms such as Twitter, WhatsApp and Facebook. In this episode, a message is going viral on social media, claiming that Novel Coronavirus infection has been found in Broiler chicken.
A copy of this claim that is going viral on the Internet has been shared by the Fact Check Handle of Press Information Bureau of India, which states that corona virus has been found in broiler chicken. I request all of you not to eat broiler chicken and please share it everywhere.
PIB Fact Check has rejected this claim and called this message fake. According to PIB Fact Check, no records of corona virus have been found in broiler chicken, so this news is fake.

Significantly, no news related to the occurrence of Kovid-19 infection in chicken has been reported so far. The World Health Organization has also said that meat, fish, eggs and milk can be consumed safely, so the claim that Kovid-19 is found in broiler chicken in viral messages is fake. In this hour of Corona crisis, it is an appeal to you that you do not trust him without knowing the truth of any news.
Novel corona virus infection has been found in broiler chicken.
PIB Fact Check has called this news a fake, as so far there is no record of corona virus being found in broiler chicken.
