Recently, a false claim that using hand sanitiser continuously can cause harmful skin disease or cancer has been circulating. PIB’s fact check on Twitter handle recently debunked the fake news with a post.

“Claim: A newspaper report states that continuous use of sanitizer for 50-60 days can lead to harmful skin disease & cancer,” they tweeted.

“This information is false. Use of hand sanitizers does not harm humans. Hand sanitizers with 70% alcohol content are recommended for protection against #COVID,” they added.

After PIB debunked the false news report, many users urged officials concerned to take action against those people who are involved in spreading fake news, in order to set examples for others.
