October 1 is trending on TikTok. Many claim that there will be a radical change in the world, but the reality is that despite the viral, the videos are not answering the question about what will happen this day. That is why in American Post News, we give you the context.
The videos go viral without answering what will happen on October 1, but many have begun to use the trend to gain fame.
Apparently, it all has to do with the fact that some places have indicated that no one will use the mouth covers from that date on.
Misinformation about the use of face masks
On TikTok, there is growing misinformation about what will happen on October 1, as they claim that on that date, “mouth covers will be removed from everywhere, such as public places, schools, and jobs.”
Some influencers even have conspiracy theories, such as an alleged worldwide decree to remove the mandatory use of mouthguards.
And the fact that October 1 became a trend became more viral because the so-called influencers take facts and add false comments to them, creating false information and confusing people.
