FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found that the claim attached to the video is FAKE.

When we extracted the keyframes of the video through InVid and put them through Reverse Image Search, we found the original video on Nation Bharat’s YouTube channel titled ‘Bihar के Bhagalpur Central Jail में हुआ कोरोना का मॉक ड्रिल, ऐसे ही तड़पता है कोरोना का मरीज’ (Translation- Corona’s mock drill conducted in Bihar’s Bhagalpur Central Jail. This is how a Corona patient suffers)

On further investigation, we found a report by Dainik Bhaskar dated April 10 about the mock drill that was carried out in Bhagalpur’s Central Jail on April 9, 2020.

This conclusively proves that the video being shared is of a mock drill and hence, the claim is false.
