The aid campaign in the videowasclaimed to be related to the new coronavirus and shared on social media and sent to Teyit. Just one of the posts got 63,000 likes and 31,000 retweets. 


When we search the video by the reverse visual search method, it is possible to see that the post is dated 25 January 2020. The video is a part of the live video broadcast by a user, called Yasin Gündüz, in a group, called “Çocuklar için El Ele” (Collaborate for Children). In the first minutes of the video, the person who recorded it states that the food aid package is being prepared for 750 families. In the 50. seconds of the video, he says that some of the packages will be sent to the earthquake victims in Elazığ.

The other photosin this group show the aid was prepared for the earthquake victims. After the video was shared many times on social media, the post, shared on the Facebook page of this group on March 23, 2020, says that the video is about the aid for those in Elazığ and Idlib, and not related to the Covid-19 epidemic.

In the fourth minute of the record, he says that the process for the aid is maintained near Zeki Özdemir High School. When we search the high school on Google Maps, we see it is in Konya. 

When you go far a little bit, you can see the place where the video was recorded.

The claim that the video is from different countries gets about all over the world, Shayan Sardarizadeh, from BBC, stated the recording date is 25 January 2020 and the location is Konya.

More than 40 people died in the 6.8 magnitude earthquake that took place in Elazig Sivrice on January 24, 2020. Long-standing instability in Idlib caused a serious asylum seeker problem.

In conclusion, the claim that the aid campaign is for the Covid-19 epidemic is not true. It was made for the families in Idlib and the victims in the earthquake in Elazığ. The post in question is an example of a false connection.
