Ice Cream/Cold Food Do Not Make You Susceptible to Coronavirus: WHO & UNICEF
During this global pandemic, when people are on the sting of their seats and each developing story about coronavirus leaves them scared, sharing news after it’s been fact-checked may be a must! it’s because each piece of data, if not explained well or released by an authentic news source are often interpreted in additional ways than one, causing chaos.
Recently one such case surfaced where a random document titled UNICEF with a variety of points thereunder talked about what coronavirus is, a number of its causes and prevention. one among the points quoted ‘stay faraway from frozen dessert and eating cold is important’.
Now, normal practice would be to believe something like this thanks to its association with UNICEF, but what’s worrying is what happened then.
A few days later, UNICEF Pakistan and World Health Organisation, the 2 global organizations working towards public health released a press release debunking this myth about frozen dessert and cold food. They denied these claims by posting an equivalent image with fake written in bold red and therefore the caption saying ‘beware of misinformation’.
No information is best than misinformation. At a time like this, when tensions are high rather than making matters worse, let’s look out for each other and most of all let’s please refrain from spreading false news.
