Practice Checking Claims
"Simple Self-Check"
Sometimes, we need to read beyond the headline to identify the claim being made.

Here's a story from a site called Bollyy saying that experts have figured out a quick way to test whether we have coronavirus (https://bollyy.com/taiwan-experts-provide-a-simple-self-check-that-we-can-do-every-morning/).

This story went viral and was shared many, many times on social media.

There is no Wikipedia entry for the site, so it's not easy to assess the reliability of the source. Instead, we need to figure out if the claim is accurate.

Skim the article (or the image below) to see what it claims we should do, then use your searching skills to check the claim.
