Cooperative Housing Societies(CHS) and Resident Welfare Associations(RWA) spreading fake news saying that dogs and cats can cause COVID is a violation of the Disaster Management Act 2005.
Strict action will be taken against such misinformation by the Government of India.
Please take note and share with societies who are spreading misinformation about animals spreading #COVID19.
Details of how to and whom to complain are shared in the images below.
Animals don’t spread or get #coronavirus. We humans do.
Don’t be a #COVIDIOT. Don’t spread misinformation, it’s is not only irresponsible but also a criminal offence.
Please do file a formal complaint if a CHS/RWA or member of such CHS/RWA does not desist from spreading false information even after your warning and sharing facts.
Globally, over 17 lakh people have been infected with COVID-19, whereas, there have been only 4 isolated and rare cases of animals that have tested positive for COVID. Experts suggest that these animals got it from their positive pet parents with whom these animals were living.
NO cases in India whatsoever, and NO evidence GLOBALLY to prove that animals spread it. Instead, there is more than enough evidence to prove that humans spread the virus to other fellow humans and that is precisely why we are in a lockdown, animals are not.
So, if at all anyone has to be scared, it’s the animals who should be scared of us and not the other way round.
You are way more safe with an animal than with an unknown human.
Please share widely!
