District Wenlock Hospital Superintendent Dr H R Rajeshwari Devi has filed a complaint with the police seeking action against those circulating fake videos of a man infected with Covid-19 at the hospital.

In the video, a man was seen struggling to breathe at a hospital. The message in the video reads that the man was admitted at Wenlock Hospital.
