Malaysia Does NOT Have 4 Most Dangerous COVID-19 Cities In Asia
This is more fake news being shared on WhatsApp.
This infographic is real, but it was edited to convey a completely different message. Here is what you need to know
Fact #1 : This Infographic Is From 2016
This infographic is genuine, but it was originally posted in April 2016, not 2021.
The fake news creator just added the words “Covid terror countries” at the top.
Fact #2 : Infographic Was About Crime, Not COVID-19
The infographic above was about crime, not COVID-19. Obviously, COVID-19 did not exist back in 2016.
Fact #3 : Ranking Was Roundly Mocked
The WorldAtlas ranking was not based on actual crime statistics, but user surveys on the website, Numbeo.
Needless to say, it roundly mocked when it was released, as it did not reflect actual realities.
Fact #4 : Klang Isn’t A City
Klang is not a city, it’s a town. That’s another reason why the WorldAtlas ranking in 2016 was mocked.
