IBA Posts ‘Doctored’ Image Of Facemask-Wearing Meeting Attendees
Institute of Business Administration (IBA), one of the most prestigious educational institutions of the country, Monday allegedly doctored the image of one of their meetings to suggest that the attendees adhered to the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
The IBA posted an image of the meeting, organised to sign an agreement with a bank to provide scholarship to the fresh undergraduate students. In the image, all of those in attendance can be seen wearing face masks, although not adhering to the social distancing rules.
Soon after, a social media user posted another image highlighting that two of the attendees were holding face masks in their hands. In the same photo, none of the attendees are seen wearing face masks.

Despite being one of the worst-hit by the pandemic, the citizens are not being seen observing measures to be safe from a potential infection. The situation has not been under control despite smart lockdowns announced by the government across the country. The motive was to stop the outbreak at the virus hot-spots.
Last month, some 9,532 violations of health guidelines or instructions were reported across the country in just 24 hours. On the same day, 4,100 people were reported to be infected. According to the latest statistics, the current number of confirmed cases in the country stand at 253,604.
