TRUTH & Verification

Corona infection is increasing in India. The number of COVID-19 infected patients has crossed 37 thousand so far.

The video has been going viral on social media, in which the employees of Punjab National Bank's Ghaziabad Loni branch can be seen evacuating and are sent in an ambulance.

We found that the claim made with the viral video is misleading. Not all employees of the PNB Loni’s Branch were COVID infected, but only one employee was found to be Corona positive. On this matter, Loni SDM Khalid Anjum said that an employee at Punjab National Bank's Loni branch was found to be Corona positive, after which 17 bank employees including two guards were sent to Quarantine.
