Fake Audio Alert by the WHO and a tweet by PIB refutes that WHO had suggested in the audio clip to lockdown India from 15 April to 15 June.
The World Health Organisation dismissed the news by alerting on its website that the Audio is fake and said the content in the audio is incorrect and baseless.
The PIB Fact Check which is responsible for debunking fake news related to government policies and schemes said the audio is fake, and it was the work of some miscreants. It added that there is no such plan by the government.
