NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be old and misleading.
On putting keywords, ‘dogs’ ‘sitting’ ‘hospital bed’ ‘Bihar’ we found this picture in the news article on Biharpost dated December 7, 2017, that claims the state government in Bihar has ordered an investigation after street dogs were found sleeping on the beds alongside the patient.
We also found the dog picture sitting on the hospital beds in a video on Republic World Youtube Channel dated December 5, 2017.
Hence, with the help of the above information, it is clear that the picture of dogs sitting on the hospital bed is from 2017 and not the recent one.
