Fact Check: Video of overburdened, unhygienic hospital in Mumbai shared as hospital in Delhi

With the ever-increasing number of Coronavirus cases and deaths, hospitals and medical staff all over the world are overwhelmed. A video showing an overburdened and unhygienic hospital ward is doing the rounds on the internet.

It has been claimed that the video is taken in a hospital in Delhi, where dead bodies are kept along with the sick patients.

The caption of the video read: ‘केजरवाल कुछ तो शर्म करो……. हद हो गई भाई। नहीं समलता तो बताओ राष्ट्रपति शासन लागू करने का अनुरोध करें’

(Translation- You should be ashamed, Kejriwal. You have crossed all limits. If you can’t handle the situation, tell us. We will request for President’s rule in Delhi.)


NewsMobile fact-checked the above video and found that the claim attached to it is partly false.

When we extracted the keyframes of the video through InVid and put them through Reverse Image Search, we found the video in question on Brut India’s official Facebook page dated May 29, 2020.

The title of the video read, ‘Covid-19 Is Bleeding Mumbai Hospitals Dry. Mumbai’s doctors are working out of their skin to save lives. But as cases multiply, these hospital wards are turning into a nightmare’.

According to the video, the clip shows the condition in the emergency ward of Mumbai’s state-run KEM hospital on May 26, 2020, where many patients were forced to share beds, sleep on the floor and lie next to dead bodies.

The incident has been covered by various news organisations. Read the report here.

Hence, the above information proves that the video that is being circulated shows KEM Hospital in Mumbai, not a Delhi hospital.
