British Prime Minister Boris Johnson came down with Covid-19 and was hospitalized. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s leading news channel “Dawn” broadcast news of his death. In its report, “Dawn” links the information with “BBC Breaking News”.

Indian Counterfeit News War Room (AFWA) found that “Dawn” has been reported wrong. At the time of submitting this story, Johnson was undergoing treatment in intensive care.

Many social media users, including journalists Naila Inayat and Atika Rehman point out an error in their tweet.

The Dawn news source is a Twitter account with the name “BBC Breaking News” without the blue check mark. AFWA found that the Twitter handle was fake and had been removed (https://twitter.com/BBCbreaki/status/1247451946870624257) for violating Twitter’s rules.

While the original Twitter handle for the BBC news section is @BBCBreaking, the fake handle is @BBCbreaki.

British cabinet office minister Michael Gove told LBC radio on April 7, “The prime minister has received a certain amount of oxygen and is heavily guarded, but he is not using a ventilator.”

Many stand out media house monitor his health and publish updates.

The UK is one of the European countries most affected by coronavirus infection.
