The Claim

COVID-19 Pro Max is coming soon in 2021.

Emerging story

A new image has been widely circulating on social media as a highly contagious new variant of the coronavirus was reported. The picture shows the Chinese President explaining COVID-19's new updates. Users shared the picture claiming China is the main reason for the spread of COVID-19 in 2020. 

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar's investigation found the picture fake. Users shared the picture as a joke as bad news related to COVID-19 was reported mid-December. We witnessed a lot of memes related to quarantine, lockdown, and COVID-19 in 2020. The Chinese President’s Xi Jinping face has been photoshopped over Apple’s CEO Tim Cook’s body. The picture is a meme that shows Jinping on stage explaining COVID-19 updates. The meme creator linked Apple generations' names with coronavirus.
The picture used in the claim has been first found online in 2011.
