[FALSE] “1962 Italian magazine described 2022 world would look like”

NOT specifically mentioned the year of 2022. Also, the correct context is referring to traffic congestion, NOT to any of COVID-19 aspects.




False context.

* HOAX OR FACT: ““Will we go around cities like this? Here’s how the problem of traffic in cities could be lightened, if not completely solved: tiny single-seater cars that occupy a small area…”

So, the photograph actually shows how the problem of traffic in cities could be lightened in future using small, single-seater cars (singlets) occupying quite less area. In other words, it showed Urban transport of the future – not post COVID-19 global pandemic world in 2022.”

* facta.news: “The illustration therefore, as far as it can be considered at the forefront thinking about the birth, several years later, of means of transport designed to transport a single individual at a time (such as, for example, the Twizy produced by Renault), has nothing to do see with the new coronavirus and there are no explicit references to 2022. As seen, front and back of the number of La Domenica del Corriere published on 16 December 1962 revolve around the theme of city traffic and possible solutions to reduce it.”
