"A origem das variantes da Covid-19..."

Publication on the social network Facebook (Post) by the North American user "Renee Hensley", in which the emergence of new COVID-19 variants is linked with the entry of "illegal" mexican immigrants in the United States of America. A misleading/unrelated use of independent and unrelated images is made to frame the situation (Misleading Content), consciously seeking to share false information with the intention of causing harm (Dis-Information) (the association between the emergence of new variants and the immigrants entry in the country).
