A Chinese journalist named Shen Shwei has been trying to clarify the mystery surrounding the Beijing worm rain on Twitter, claiming that the footage was false and that there had been no recent rainfall in the city. The worms observed in the video, according to some sources, are usually present in the area in March and are not unusual.
I’m in Beijing and this video is fake. Beijing hasn’t got rainfall these days.
