NEET Bulletin (New Delhi, Desk): MCI advisory is going viral on social media that states that students of MBBS will be recruited to help health authorities in the fight against coronavirus. This advisory as stated has been issued by the Medical Council of India, MCI stating that all MBBS students including both government and private medical colleges are advised to recruit MBBS students and interns to combat this epidemic.
When cross checked and verified by Press Information Bureau (PIB) on Thursday this advisory has been found to be fake and PIB retweeted the same. The MCI has not issued any advisory in this regard and as a norm now a days, social media is flooded with such bogus information that is affecting health system as well as the country. The coronavirus outbreak has acted as a catalyst in creating social media information chaos since day one, which is not a good sign for the industry and country both.
