New Delhi: The COVID-19 caseloads in the country is increasing like never before. Everyone has been advised to follow the COVID guidelines. In a recent development, one such list having 21 guidelines has gone viral over the online sphere. The list claimed that it was issued by the Indian Council. of Medical Research (ICMR), a report from The Quint has debunked this viral post.
The fake advisory enlists 21 steps that need to be followed in the course of next six to twelve months in order to stay safe in the global pandemic.
Here are some of the points mentioned in the advisory:
– Postpone travel abroad for 2 years
– Do not eat outside for one year
– Do not go to unnecessary marriage or other similar ceremony
– Do not take unnecessary travel trips
– Do not go to a crowded place for at least one year
This advisory is being shared on various social media platforms such as facebook, twitter, whatsapp
The official website of ICMR has not released any such advisory and it is a fake notice.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has released guidelines that recommends “to was hands properly after handling food packages and before eating.” Thus the claim of do not eat outside one year is a false one.

– Clean your hands often. Use soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand rub
