    Fake news on WhatsApp is a big problem and it’s becoming much more dangerous now with the coronavirus pandemic. WhatsApp had received a bot from the World Health Organization (WHO) in March that provided newest information to customers about the coronavirus pandemic and its related bust myths.

    WhatsApp lets you see if a message has been sent to you through the forwarded icon, which is visible at the top of the post. WhatsApp also set a cap earlier this year for how many times a message can be forwarded.

    How soon WhatsApp intends to roll this feature, which it started testing several months ago, out to users around the globe, remains unclear.
