A morphed screenshot of BBC's website is used to falsely claim that the outlet reported on black fungus linking with cow urine.
We found one article published by BBC on May 9 about black fungus written by Soutik Biswas. It did not mention anything about cow urine. Soutik Biswas also tweeted that the viral image is fake.
Further, we noticed formatting and grammatical errors in the viral screenshot by comparing it with the original article published on May 23. For example, in the original BBC article, the headline, byline, and dateline are all left-aligned, one under the other. In the case of the viral image, there is a small gap between the alignment of headline, byline, and dateline.
We mark the claim as false as a doctored image is being circulated on social media.
