Over the weekend, a certain statement went viral.
It carried the UNICEF logo as a letterhead with an 8 point guideline on coronavirus preventive measures.
Among many things, the statement sought to inform readers that coronavirus cannot survive in a 25°C atmosphere.
It also advised people to drink hot water as a preventive measure against coronavirus.
Well, UNICEF Ghana has come out to categorically deny that it released such a statement with such advice to Ghanaians.
“Beware of fake UNICEF-branded messages and documents circulating on social media,” the UN institution said in a post on its verified Facebook page.
“Only refer to and share information from UNICEF’s official website and social media platforms with your networks,” it added.
