Posts claiming presence of swans, dolphins in canals of Venice after Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak turns out to be misleading

Kaveri's defence about it being a 'personal record' perhaps refers to the number of retweets and likes her tweets garnered over time. At the time of this report, her tweet had 281.9k retweets and over 1 million likes.

As the Wuhan Coronavirus spreads across the globe, there are several images of new animal life that have come to the fore. Many users have shared pictures claiming that though Coronavirus is a pandemic, there is an upside to it since animal life is thriving again. A social user named Kaveri on Tuesday shared a series of images of claiming the presence of swans, dolphins at the canals of Venice, Italy.

Kaveri, posting the images of the crystal clear canals, rejoiced about the presence of swans in the canals. According to Kaveri, the presence of swans in the canals of Venice was a side effect of the pandemic outbreak of coronavirus. Her tweet was shared across the social media platforms leading to the garnering of more than a million likes.

“Here’s an unexpected side effect of the pandemic,” her tweet said. “The water flowing through the canals of Venice is clear for the first time in forever. The fish are visible, the swans returned,” she added.

Kaveri, however, did not stop there. She went on to share another set of misleading reports claiming that Dolphins had returned to the Venice canals as humans self-isolated themselves after coronavirus pandemic spread across cities of Italy.

Nevertheless, the images shared by Kaveri are not real. According to the National Geographic channel report, the images of swans at the canals was apparently captured at the canals of Burano, a small island in the greater Venice metropolitan area.

The Venetian dolphins which were allegedly seen at the Venice, according to the claims of Kaveri are also false as the videos were filmed at a port in Sardinia, in the Mediterranean Sea, hundreds of miles away.

Despite the clarification, Kaveri has not deleted her misleading Twitter posts. Speaking to the NGC, she argued that her posts were still relevant because waters in Venice are clearer than usual a result of decreased boat activity and that is what mattered to her.

Defending her posts, she tweeted about the unprecedented number of likes and retweets she has received on the tweet. “It’s a personal record for me, and I would not like to delete it,” she said.

Kaveri’s defence about it being a ‘personal record’ perhaps refers to the number of retweets and likes her tweets garnered over time. At the time of this report, her tweet had 281.9k retweets and over 1 million likes.
