An image of a news article is viral with it’s title digitally edited, falsely malign journalism. Although the first reaction would consider the title edited, but then many are forwarding, sharing this considering real, blaming the journalist who wrote the article.
The news article is about a probable third wave of COVID-19 stating that IIT experts have studied it and it would not be much smaller as compared to the first (last year), and second (last few months)
The title in the viral image is “राहत: कोरोना की तीसरी लहर %^ट बराबर आएगी”
It’s viral on whatsapp with text –“ये क्या भाषा हो गयी है पत्रकारों की”
Translation – “What kind of language the journalists are using now ?”
That is convincing🥳 pic.twitter.com/YZHCeG1BGb
