NOVAK DJOKOVIC’S wife Jelena has been branded with a “False Information” tag on Instagram after sharing a coronavirus conspiracy video.
The 33-year-old uploaded a 10-minute video that linked the global pandemic to 5G connectivity.
Other celebs and sports stars like Amir Khan, Lee Ryan, Jason Gardiner and Calum Best are among those sharing unsubstantiated information with fans.
It has even led to people SETTING FIRE to 5G masts as panic spreads throughout the world.
Jelena, who has almost 500,000 followers on Instagram and didn’t say that she agreed with the message, captioned the upload: “What are your coronavirus thoughts?
“Lots of videos going around these days debating the current situation with the #coronavirus, causes, cures, prevention.
“Whoever has time, please check this one out and let me know your thoughts.
“Does anyone recognise who this guy is? Kisses and love.”
The person talking in the clip is American physician Dr Thomas Cowan.
Various social media sites and messenger apps have said recently that they will block hearsay being spread regarding the outbreak.
And clearly that’s what Instagram have done right here, after “Independent Fact Checkers” deleted the video.
The theory originated last month after a video filmed at a US health conference claimed Africa was not as affected by the disease because it is “not a 5G region”.
NOVAK AGAINST VACCINATION
Fake news-busting charity Full Fact states that “there’s no evidence that 5G is harmful to humans” and the technology has been declared safe by the ICNIRP, the body that sets guidelines on safe limits of exposure to radiation.
Meanwhile Jelena’s tennis star husband Novak sensationally claimed he might not return to the tennis circuit if players are required to have a Covid-19 vaccination.
Djokovic, 32, said on Instagram: “Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel.
“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision.”
Former tennis world No1 Marat Safin has evenbizarrely claimed the coronavirus pandemic is a conspiracy for people to “have chips inserted” into their bodies.
He made the comments during an interview with Russian sports portal Sports.ru.
