The viral video has been clipped from a section of News First Kannada’s broadcast that aired last year in March. The video is titled on YouTube – ‘Mall, Theatre, School will be shut for A Week in Karnataka’.

A report in Deccan Herald from March 2020 said, “On March 13, the government ordered the closure of malls, theatres, multiplexes, clubs and pubs and other commercial establishments where people gather in large numbers for a week. The government also declared a holiday for colleges and universities.”

BBMP commissioner N. Manjunatha Prasad had also tweeted about the restrictions on March 13.

Thus, a March 2020 clip of CM Yeddyurappa announcing restrictions in public places due to COVID has been shared as recent.
