No, this list of COVID-19 precautions was not issued by ICMR

By Akhil Reddy On May 13th, 2020

A list of COVID-19 precautions to be followed for the next 6 to 12 months is being shared widely on social media with a claim that it was issued by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR – New Delhi). But, FACTLY has found that no such list was issued by ICMR. When ICMR was contacted, they have mentioned that if they come with any such instructions, they would post them on their website and official social media handles. One can see that no such list of precautionary measures, as mentioned in the post, was posted anywhere by ICMR.
