With Covid-19 still persisting across the world, it is unavoidable to sputter conspiracy about the virus origin going around in the world of internet. The theory that has spouted and gained massive views throughout the web was something about the relation between the virus and the launch of 5G connectivity. According to the Guardian, videos supporting this claim posted to YouTube will be suppressed, in which fewer videos of such content will be recommended to users in YouTube and in their search results, especially in the United Kingdom. However “content that is simply conspiratorial about 5G mobile communications networks, without mentioning coronavirus, is still allowed on the site.”
Since Early February, Youtube has been removing potentially harmful content that suggests a liason between Covid-19 and 5G, as well as other inaccurate conceptions about the coronavirus. Furthermore, the video streaming platform has also been providing easier access of information from authorized health organizations the likes of CDC and WHO concerning the virus.
