'US emergency alert test debunking wild conspiracy of '5G zombies' deserves a laugh'
The October 4 emergency alert test in the US has sparked hilarious conspiracies, including one that claims it will turn people into '5G zombies'.
The US government is set to conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System on October 4, prompting hilarious conspiracies on the internet. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be conducting the test to ensure that the system is functioning properly. The test will involve sending alerts to cell phones, radios, and TVs at 2:20pm ET. Citizens will receive a text message stating that it is a test and no action is needed. Additionally, a one-minute alert will be broadcasted on radios and TVs, informing people that it is a nationwide test issued by FEMA.
This is not the first time such a test has been conducted, but it has garnered attention due to the outrageous conspiracy theories surrounding it. One theory suggests that the emergency alert will activate 5G towers and turn some of the population into zombies. People on platforms like Twitter and TikTok are spreading this theory, claiming that the 5G signal will trigger a virus that will lead to a zombie apocalypse. However, these claims are clearly far-fetched and not based on any factual evidence.
Other predictions for October 4 include cell phones being hacked and a nationwide blackout. These theories have also been met with skepticism and laughter on social media. Many find it amusing that people would believe such outlandish ideas. Some individuals have even made jokes about the upcoming test, sarcastically marking themselves as "safe" from the supposed 5G zombie apocalypse.
It is important to remember that the purpose of the test is to minimize confusion and familiarize citizens with what a real emergency alert would be like. The conspiracies surrounding the test are simply a product of people's imaginations and should not be taken seriously.
