Coronavirus: News of spraying chemicals fake, fabricated,says SMC


Srinagar Municipal Commissioner on Thursday said the news being circulated in social media platforms regarding the spraying of chemicals to prevent Covid-19 is “fake” and “fabricated”.

In a statement issued to news agency KNS said, SMC is not going to take up any chemical spraying after for prevention of Covid 19 but as routine, sterilisation and sanitisation of different spots, institutions, important destinations etc will be a continuous exercise

Commissioner SMC Gazanfar Ali in this regard has requested people to stay away from such fake news and follow the day to day advisories and precautionary measures that are published, telecasted or broadcasted from authentic and reliable sources.

People should follow SMC official page on FB and Twitter for any update, advisory or other pieces of information regarding Covid 19 and other issues…

As SMC is going through a tough task to tackle the present situation due to the threat of Corona Virus in the valley and it is unfortunate that some miscreants, rumour mongers are trying to circulate the fake news and creating more panic among people

A strict action shall be initiated against those spreading false information, said Commissioner SMC.
