The world’s most popular search engine, Google, has announced it will ban ads related to the 5G-Coronavirus conspiracy theories. To prevent the spread of false information, the tech giant will now block all the ads that support misleading claims about 5G and COVID-19.
As a result of conspiracy theories linking the spread of Coronavirus to 5G, 20 5G towers in England were set on fire. It is also claimed there are similar attacks in some other countries.
The International Commission On Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) says 5G does not pose any health risks. The World Health Organization (WHO) also says 5G is a reliable technology.
Earlier this month, at a Downing Street conference, Michael Gove named these conspiracy theories as ‘’dangerous nonsense’’.
But despite all this, series of attacks against 5G towers are allegedly ongoing across the UK and around the world.
According to Telegraph, Google will now ban ads that associate coronavirus with 5G from its platform in order to get over the spread of misinformation.
Last week, Google-owned Youtube also started banning videos about 5G conspiracy theories. It looks like Google has decided to take more strict measures.
Just like Google, Facebook is working hard for the same purpose. The company has banned anti-5G Facebook groups and the popular messaging app WhatsApp has limited message forwarding to only one person.
