A video of a woman on a hospital bed pleading people to take COVID-19 seriously is making rounds on social media with the claim that the woman in the video is Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife. Let’s check the authenticity of the claim about the video.

The archived version of the post can be found here.

Claim: Video of Canada PM Justin Trudeau’s wife pleading people to take COVID-19 seriously.

Fact: The woman in the video is not Canada Prime Minister’s wife (Sophie Grégoire Trudeau). She is Tara Jane Langston, a waitress who contracted COVID-19 and undergoing treatment at Hillingdon Hospital in London. So, the claim is FALSE.  

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau was tested positive for Coronavirus and is in isolation since then.

When the screenshots of the video were subjected to reverse image search, an article of ‘Dailymail’ was obtained in the search results.  As per this article, the woman in the video is Tara Jane Langston, a waitress who contracted COVID-19 and is undergoing treatment at Hillingdon Hospital in London. She has filmed the video in an intensive care unit of the hospital pleading people to take COVID-19 seriously. Tara Jane Langston was admitted to the hospital on 15 March and was later diagnosed with COVID-19. Since then, she is undergoing treatment and is now recovering well.

Also, the same video is being falsely shared (archived post) as ‘Rita Bachkaniwala. First positive coronavirus case in Surat’.

To conclude, the woman in the video is neither Canada PM’s wife nor belong to Surat.
