Woody Harrelson is sharing a freaky conspiracy theory that 5G wireless technology may be connected to the development and spread of the coronavirus. It had previously limited itself to reducing the frequency it recommended them in its Up Next section.
A popular theory that has surfaced and flourished across the web is one which suggests there is a link between the virus and the launch of 5G connectivity.
According to Wired magazine, claims made by those against the technology include that it causes any number of ailments between nose bleeds and cancer, and that it is responsible for behavioural changes, as well as the deaths of animals. That video got more than 300,000 views.
It changed its rules after the BBC asked why it had not taken action earlier.
The company stopped short from banning all 5G conspiracy theory videos.
As for conspiracy theories about 5G that make no mention of COVID-19, those are considered "borderline content" and are subject to limited functionality. "We'll continue to evaluate the impact of these videos on communities around the world".
YouTube's rules update coincides with new restrictions on WhatsApp.
The post has since been liked and shared more than 25,000 times.
Upon the spread of this groundless theory about 5G and the attacks being experienced, he took a step on YouTube and announced that the content that claimed that the coronavirus was spreading with 5G would be removed.
In the Department of digital technology, culture, media and sport British theory about the connection 5G and coronavirus called delirium, not having no sane fundamentals, and urged the social network to actively combat the proliferation of fakes.
Henry Nkemadu, NCC Director of Public Affairs, in a statement on Monday, explained that there is no correlation between 5G technology and COVID-19. This comes after cell towers in the United Kingdom were damaged after a conspiracy theory was circulated on the internet.
Earlier this year, scientists at the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection completed a major study of related research into the topic.
Coronavirus was a "zoonotic transmission from animals to human beings, which is what caused the problem".
First up, 5G radio waves do not cause any diseases or create viruses.
But this remains a controversial idea and well outside mainstream scientific thought.
There were reports of network workers receiving both physical and verbal threats from ordinary citizens who believed the theories.
In a joint statement, BT Group's EE, Telefonica's O2, Vodafone and Three, owned by CK Hutchison Holdings, said claims 5G is in any way connected to the coronavirus pandemic have no basis in fact, a statement echoed by experts and multiple government agencies around the world.
