In any case, fish and misleading accounts on the Internet are nothing new. Due to the controversial story, a new account now takes center stage. You may have heard of Dr. Aisha (Aisha), she is a “COVID warrior”, she was defeated by the virus.
There have been reports on social media that her account may be forged, and her account was deleted shortly thereafter. Now, the Internet is still not sure why the account is forged and why someone has to create an account to get sympathy.
Whenever we see a fake account, it is hard to believe the next viral story. Dr. Aisha tweeted on July 31 that she transferred netizens to a ventilator when she was unable to cope with COVID-19, “Friends of Haya are not adapted to COVID-19. Hang on the ventilator today. Thank you U 4 Ur Friendship. I will miss Ull. Please be assured of this deadly virus. Dear fellow. Goodbye.”
According to reports, the young doctor celebrated her birthday on July 17, and only recently became a doctor. Her Twitter profile shows that she is from South Africa. As people were moved by her enthusiasm, her posts began to be all the rage and proved how much risk even someone under 65 years old might have COVID-19.
Famous people, including journalists such as Nidhi Razdan, were moved by this girl’s position.
Her posts attracted a lot of people, and further images were posted on her Twitter feed, showing that she has been hung on a ventilator.
The news came that Dr. Aisha had passed away, making the story worse. But soon, many cracks began to appear in her posts and pictures. Questions about the authenticity of her account began to raise questions.
Verification of Dr. Aisha’s claims
Although everyone deserves the benefit of doubt, spreading fake news is more dangerous. In matters such as the death of COVID-19 and the struggle of many people, it is difficult to think about serious situations. Interestingly, because people suspected Dr. Aisha’s account-(@)Aisha_must_sayz, the account was deleted.
By then, there had been reports that the account was actually fake. Twitter user (@) MonoChronica also tagged it. Since October 2019, the account has been posted on Twitter. Dr. Aisha also said that she is from South Africa, but her writing style in tweets is very similar to India’s messaging and chat style on social media.
After performing a reverse image search (fact check) on the photo she was believed to be hooked to the ventilator, we found that the photo has been in existence since 2016 as an “anaesthesia screening” photo.
Although the account owner did not provide verification of the account, Dr. Aisha’s sister posted another tweet earlier on Sunday.
However, this photo was smashed, showing a family in the hospital without masks. Moreover, netizens pointed out that many of Dr. Aisha’s tweets are viral tweets, which are copies of other viral tweets.
The inconsistency between her profile and borrowed tweets, as well as when fake images appeared on the ventilator, clearly showed that Dr. Aisha’s statement was faked and people liked the story. Nidhi Razdan and the person who shared her post have now issued a clarification, pointing out the sensitivity of posting fake stories on Twitter.
Dr. Aisha died of COVID-19.
