In order to curb the spread of fake news, rumours and misinformation the Government of India is taking all the necessary steps to ensure the safety and health of the people due to the threat posed by growing cases of coronavirus in the country.

The dedicated channel has been launched both on WhatsApp as well as Telegram as these two are the most popular instant messaging apps. People are also spreading fake news and rumours on these apps so this channel might somehow minimize the spread of the misinformation among the people in the country which is also responsible for creating panic among the citizens.
