This happens only in India

"It was a sleepless Wednesday night for many citizens in the Pimpri-Chinchwad township and some Pune suburbs, following a rumour that people were dying in their sleep. The ‘reasons’ for the rumoured deaths were many - planetary effect, fast spreading illness and earthquake.

Panic and anxiety spread among the people, mostly staying in chawls and hutments. The rumours spread fast as people started calling others on their mobiles."

Here is a link to the article in Times of India.
