I have to confess that whilst I love visiting my customers as I travel around the UK, actually the method of transport is almost always painful.

Article | March 16, 2020

The claim: “Coronavirus Hoax: Fake Virus Pandemic Fabricated to Cover-Up Global Outbreak of 5G Syndrome." — headline on an article being widely shared on Facebook. PolitiFact ruling: False.

Three people wear medical face masks, worry visible in their eyes. Next to those two images is one more that reads simply "5G" — a reference to the fifth-generation of wireless networking technology. The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed.
