Amid rising number of coronavirus cases all over the world, Twitter is adding fact-checking labels to tweets that wrongly link new superfast 5G mobile networks with the coronavirus. Instead of deleting such tweets, Twitter is showing a message on them that reads "Get the facts on Covid-19." When clicked on, users are taken to a page titled "No 5G isn't causing coronavirus" which debunks the conspiracy theory.
