BENGALURU: The poultry industry in Karnataka is facing an existential threat in the wake of false news on social media and rumours linking the COVID-19 with it.

Meat eaters can eat chicken without any fear. People should stop spreading rumours, which is creating panic in society and hurting the poultry farmers.”
