Social media is a boon in times like this. It keeps us connected and helps us get through the pains of isolation. But it can also be a bane. This is also the medium where fake news is circulated and gullible people panic after reading misleading reports. One such report circulating on social media is about a new outbreak similar to the coronavirus. We are talking about the hantavirus case in China. It is true that a person has died from this disease in China and authorities are taking no chances there. They are tracing contacts and getting tests done.
