Fact Check

In our investigation, we found that the viral claim is misleading. The viral video is an old one from 2020 and it has nothing to do with ongoing COVID-19 crisis in the country

After doing reverse image research using related keywords on Google, we found the same video was uploaded by NDTV on November 20, 2020. The description of the video reads, "A video of a stray dog nibbling at the dead body of a girl inside an Uttar Pradesh government hospital in the state's Sambhal district has caused widespread outrage. The disturbing incident took place on Thursday after the girl was brought to the hospital following a road accident; it's not clear whether she died before reaching the hospital."

The Hindu reported that after disturbing visuals of a dog licking a corps went viral, two staffers were suspended by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Amita Singh for negligence.

As per the report of Times Now the father of the deceased girl said, “The body of my daughter, who died in an accident, was brought to the hospital around two hours ago. There is clear negligence by the hospital staff as it has been lying unattended and dogs are feeding on it.”

In conclusion, an old video from November 2020 showing a stray dog nibbling at the dead body from the stretcher is being falsely shared as a recent one amid the COVID-19 crisis in the country.
