Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Conspiracy theorists on Facebook linking 5G to COVID-19 have now started pushing hydroxychloroquine as a virus cure”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
Conspiracy theorists pushing the false concept that 5G mobile signals are linked to the coronavirus outbreak are, on Facebook, increasingly now pushing the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine as a cure.
One of the biggest Facebook groups promoting the 5G conspiracy theory has evolved to become a nexus of misinformation around the coronavirus.
The "Stop 5G U.K" group is a public group on Facebook with nearly 60,000 members. Anyone is currently able to join the group.
It has historically focused on the false claim that 5G radiation is harmful to humans, with its members protesting new mobile phone masts in their areas and posting dubious scientific claims about radio waves.
When Business Insider examined more recent posts from March and April, the group appears to have evolved from its anti-5G stance to peddling hydroxychloroquine as a cure for the coronavirus.
