NMC (Nagpur Municipal Corporation) has dismissed a video, which is doing rounds on social media and shows several inmates dancing at a quarantine centre. A message is being circulated along with the video claiming that the video is from Symbiosis quarantine centre in Nagpur and that the inmates are from Naik Talao-Bangladesh area, which has turned into a hotspot for COVID-19 cases.

NMC has quashed all the claims and the video saying that it is not from any quarantine centre in Nagpur. Manish Soni, PRO, NMC, told Nation Next: “The video is not from Symbiosis quarantine centre. We are yet to know about the source of the video. If it was from Symbiosis quarantine centre, we would have received information from the officials about the same.” Soni added that citizens should not believe such videos and messages, which are circulated on social media as they are mostly not authentic.
