Kiran Bedi takes charge of Covid-19 Operations across the country.

Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi has denied the claim on her Twitter handle and asked people not to spread unconfirmed news.

A claim about Kiran Bedi is circulating on social media, suggesting that she has taken charge as a Minister at the central government to monitor COVID-19 operations across the country. Further, she will be a SPOC for Prime Minister Narendra Modi on all matters relating to COVID-19 from August 1, 2020.

However, the message is fake, and Bedi herself took to Twitter to deny the claim and said that she has also received several messages regarding this claim about which she has no idea about. She also called on everyone to refrain from spreading unconfirmed news reports.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
