Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar is under fire on social media for sharing false information about the spread of coronavirus. While addressing a press conference in Islamabad about government’s efforts to contain the outbreak, the governor said, “If you drink hot water, the virus will go to your stomach instead of lungs, where it will be killed”, he said.

This myth about the deadly virus has been doing the rounds on social media since the breakout, but it has been debunked by health experts. One would expect the government officials to do some research before advising the public over the pandemic. Social media users reacted to the governor’s ill-informed statement.
