TRUTH & Verification: Viral video on social media claiming of the Coronavirus infected Mumbai lady constable is not true, the claim was refuted by the Mumbai police itself.

BJP leader Kirit Somaiya tweeted the same message stating, "Lady Police suffering from Corona, breathing problem, waiting for Ambulance near RK Hotel Grantroad, Mumbai is in Deep Trouble.". However soon he deleted the message assuming it to be fake. However the Mumbai police responded to Somaya’s tweet and said, “We appreciate your concern sir, but this is an old video from 16.05.2020 and is not related to COVID-19. The lady corona warrior is absolutely healthy & she never tested positive for COVID-19. We request all citizens to not circulate unverified content.”
