Multiple Fake news claims:
In social media one, more fake news is revolving about the medicines of the Nobel Coronavirus, which has been found in Dr. Ramesh Gupta's Book Jantu Vigyan. Here is a message in Hindi which is circulating on WhatsApp.
"""भाइयों काफी किताबों में ढूंढने के बाद बड़ी मुश्किल से नोबेल कोरोना वायरस की दवा मिली है, हम लोग कोरोना वायरस की दवा ना जाने कहां-कहां ढूंढते रहे लेकिन कोरोना वायरस की दवा इंटरमीडिएट की जन्तु विज्ञान की किताब में दी गई है जिस वैज्ञानिक ने इस बीमारी के बारे में लिखा है उसने ही इसके इलाज के बारे में भी लिखा है और यह कोई नई बीमारी नहीं है इसके बारे में तो पहले से ही इंटरमीडिएट की किताब में बताया गया है साथ में इलाज भी। कभी-कभी ऐसा होता है कि डॉक्टर और वैज्ञानिक बड़ी-बड़ी किताबों के चक्कर में छोटे लेवल की किताबों पर ध्यान नहीं देते और यहां ऐसा ही हुआ है। (किताब- जन्तु विज्ञान, लेखक- डॉ रमेश गुप्ता, पेज नं-1072) भाइयों यह कोई फेक न्यूज़ नहीं है इसलिए मेरी आप से यह विनती है कि इस दवा को ज्यादा से ज्यादा शेयर करें ताकि किसी कोरोना वायरस से ग्रसित मरीज का इलाज हो सके। ("Brothers, after finding it in many books, the drug of Nobel Corona virus has been found with great difficulty, we have not been able to find the Corona virus medicine but where the corona virus medicine was found, But, the drug of corona virus is given in the Intermediate Animal Science book, the scientist who has written about this disease has also written about its treatment and it is not a new disease. Intermediate book mentions treatment as well. Sometimes it happens that doctors and scientists do not pay attention to books of small level in the spur of big books and this has happened here.)
#WHO you have not gone through the book of 12th standard written by Dr Ramesh Chand Gupta where he has mentioned about coronavirus so this is not a recent disease and he mentioned the cure too...who else is confused here #JantaCurfewMarch22 #pmoindia #NarendraModi#coronavirus pic.twitter.com/WWA8HzuskX— Sunita Pradhan (@SunitaP22163768) March 22, 2020

Facts Check Verdict: False
When we browse WHO( World Health Organization) website it clearly states that The novel coronavirus is a new strain of the coronavirus family. It has unique characteristics and has never been discovered before.
"This #coronavirus is not SARS, it’s not MERS & it’s not influenza. It is a unique virus with unique characteristics.— World Health Organization (WHO) (@WHO) March 3, 2020
Both #COVID19 & influenza cause respiratory disease & spread the same way, via small droplets of fluid from the nose & mouth of someone who is sick"-@DrTedros
WHO states that the coronaviruses are a large family of viruses, which affects animals and humans. Because the coronaviruses depict a family of viruses, it means that there are many types of coronaviruses present. Because the one that is discovered now was never found earlier, that is why it is being called as novel coronavirus or COVID-19
WHO clearly mentions that the medicines haven't been found for this virus and it may take more than a year to invent any vaccine to cure COVID-19.
Therefore the treatments mentioned in Dr. Ramesh Gupta's Book Jantu Vigyan not a treatment for coronavirus but a treatment for common cold caused by a coronavirus.
The message is totally misleading there is no cure till now for coronavirus but to take precautions against it. The most effective ways to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 are
