Coronavirus and 5G Connection Theory is Just Baseless
Radio waves cannot transmit human viruses, although they can carry computer viruses.
Amidst the coronavirus outbreak, the online world is filled with conspiracy theories that are trying to link the novel coronavirus with the rollout of 5G technology. Although there is no scientific base for this theory, various 5G towers in the UK were set on fire due to this stupid rumor.
Theories shared on social media networks traveled with speed and the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the US Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) clearly stated: “5G technology does NOT cause coronavirus.”
None of these conspiracy theories make any sense and have no base of proof regarding 5G networks spreading coronavirus. The virus is creating havoc in countries where there are no 5G towers or connections. Coronavirus which causes COVID-19 disease has no relation with electromagnetic waves. 5G and coronavirus are the global phenomena happening at the same time, and that’s just a coincidence.
Professor Stephen Powis, NHS England medical director called the relation between coronavirus and 5G to be just ‘outrageous’ and ‘absolute and utter rubbish.’ The UK Government also branded the conspiracies to be “dangerous nonsense” and labeled claims “crackpot.”
Some of the notorious theories in this series also suggest that 5G makes the immune system weak and coronavirus is transmitted through 5G networks. Both are false acquisitions.
5G radiowaves are nowhere near to heat a human body or suppress your immune system, Simon Clarke, associate professor in cellular microbiology at the University of Reading explains, “The idea that 5G lowers your immune system doesn’t stand up to scrutiny,”
The novel coronavirus is transmitted from a person to person, typically through body fluids like saliva when a sick person coughs or sneezes. The only viruses that can transmit via radio waves like 5G networks can affect computers, not human bodies.
