FIT Webqoof: Mutton Livestock Infected With Virus? It’s Fake

No, mutton from Ajmer is not coming with unknown virus


A video showing fifty goats infected with what is being called an unknown virus in a market in Ajmer has gone viral. Here's how the video is being shared:

An unknown virus has spread in the mutton livestock market in India, so avoid consuming goat mutton. Share this video & message with family & friends.

FIT spoke to Dr. Ajay Arora, Joint Director, Animal Husbandry Department, Ajmer who said in none of the markets selling mutton in Ajmer, has any such virus been found. He calls the video fake.

The viral video is being circulated on WhatsApp, Twitter and Facebook. One of the reasons of it going viral this time around could have to do with the COVID 2019, or the coronavirus dominating global headlines.

However, there's no proof of livestock of Ajmer, or India for that matter, being infected.
