WHAT?

The Press Information Bureau has recently busted a conspiracy theory that was being spread about the second wave of COVID-19. 

An audio message claiming that the 5G testing is the reason behind the sudden surge in COVID cases in India has been doing the rounds. In the message, a man can be heard saying that because of 5G testing people are dying in states like UP, Maharashtra and Bihar.
