Claim by David Icke: 5G at 60 GHz “stops the human body and blood absorbing oxygen”; this is what doctors are describing [in COVID-19 cases]

Health Feedback rating: Incorrect (The electromagnetic frequencies used in 5G don’t deprive the body of oxygen. On the contrary, it is oxygen that absorbs the energy from electromagnetic waves, causing these waves to progressively lose energy with distance. COVID-19 is a respiratory infectious disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, not 5G technology.)

FALSE Claim via Social media: Global polar bear population is increasing.

The graph is based on various estimates of the global population that include unscientific estimates, extrapolation and insufficient data sets, according to scientists.)

  1. I’ve seen the video. Immediately AFTER 6 January, it was gone until recently. Then in the video dump, I say it again. Even the crowd called them out. They were the only ones using truncheons to break windows. They were dressed in black and their faces (not all of them) were covered. I’m being to find your info highly suspect. There’s other info that I’ve seen with my own eyes. I think your team is lazy, ether that our your veering left.
