WhatsApp imposes new limit on forwarding to fight false Covid-19 claims

The Facebook-owned chat app has announced new limit on message forwarding  to slow the dissemination of fake news. If a user receives a frequently forwarded message – one which has been forwarded more than five times – under the new restrictions, they will only be able to send it on to a single chat at a time.
