In a press release issued by the Veterinary wing of GHMC, clarified that the posts are being circulated on social media claim to have some connection between the ongoing global emergency of Corona Virus and the meat industry, whereas in India there is not a single case of any bird being found positive to Corona virus nor case of Bird-flu was reported. 

The photos that are being circulated of birds having succumbed to this virus, are actually the photographs of birds infected with ‘Ranikhet’ disease. Rumour surrounding Corona Virus is badly affecting the poultry and meat industry and the poultry farmers are put to heavy losses.

He appealed to the public not to believe the fake information that is being provided through social media. Indian cooked chicken and eggs are very safe for consumption. Poultry industry is often blamed by such falso rumours. Do not believe these fake rumours being pushed by others, said Dr.P Venkateshwar Reddy.
