(KGTV) - Did a tv newscast claim coronavirus has been found in toilet paper?

No!

An image being sent around social media appears to be a screen grab from tv news claiming Covid-19 has been found in toilet paper.

But the meme was created using the "Build Your Own News" website. It was made to poke fun at the stocking up on toilet paper happening across the country.

Although most people took the meme for a joke, some apparently mistook the fake screen shot for real news and panicked.
