In the last couple of days since the new Omicron variant has been detected in India, many have been fearing new lockdowns in the country to contain the new variant. WHO declared the Omicron variant a ‘global concern’ sounding alarm bells all over the country.

Amidst this, people began sharing a screenshot of Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren’s statement that Jharkhand is instituting a new lockdown in the state because of the new variant. This raised a lot of eyebrows causing panic amongst the residents of the states.

Fact-Check:

However, this news turns out to be false as the official handle of Soren categorically denied the screenshot calling it fake. Soren’s office has instructed Jharkhand Police to look into the matter and find the person who spread this fake news.
