Fact Check: Old image of an elderly woman from 2018 falsely shared as a recent one

  • Share

Summary

Visuals from an old incident from April 2018, showing a woman sitting on a road with an oxygen cylinder are being falsely shared as a recent one amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country. 

Recently, a disturbing image has surfaced on social media showing an elderly woman sitting on the road with an oxygen cylinder claiming that the image is a recent one. 

The image was shared on the verified page of 'Banglar Gorbo Mamata' with a caption that can be translated to, "What is the crime of this mother Modiji?"

Several other users on Twitter are sharing the same image claiming that the image is a recent one. 

The truth behind the claim

In our investigation, we found the image is from a 2018 incident, and not related to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country. 

We found a report published by news agency ANI on April 7, 2018, with the title 'Medical apathy! Man awaits ambulance while carrying mother's oxygen cylinders on shoulder.'

As per the report, in yet another case of medical apathy, a man was allegedly made to wait for an ambulance at Uttar Pradesh's Agra Medical College, while carrying an oxygen cylinder attached to his ailing mother, on his shoulder. A video of the medical apathy went viral where the woman was seen standing in the hospital premises with her oxygen mask on, while her son was standing next to her holding her oxygen tank. The mother-son duo waited for a long time for the ambulance, but the vehicle was a no-show. However, hospital authorities denied the allegation while assuring action in the matter.

The Times of India also reported the incident 

In conclusion, visuals from an old incident from April 2018, showing a woman sitting on a road with an oxygen cylinder are being falsely shared as a recent one amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country.
