5G is the latest generation of mobile Internet connectivity that provides faster speed on smartphones and other smart devices
In a new wave of panic and fear-mongering, several people are slowly buying into the idea of a new conspiracy theory that claims 5G networks as responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak. According to the BBC there are two camps of this conspiracy theory.
- The first states that 5G suppresses the immune system, making people more vulnerable to COVID-19.
- The second, suggests that the virus can be transmitted through the use of 5G technology.
New to 5G?
Here’s a brief introduction;•
5G is the latest generation of mobile Internet connectivity that provides faster speed on smartphones and other smart devices.
According to experts, 5G networks will provide the infrastructure required to transfer big data and is expected to supercharge the Internet of Things (IOT) Technology.
These recent misguided rumors are being amplified on social media, leaving even the rational of minds with a shred of doubt. At a time when scary health-related concerns are infiltrating media, it is more important than ever to squash the untruths before they develop into bigger monsters.
The obvious truth is 5G promises to be a huge leap for mankind in this digital era, but there is however, no truth linking it to negative effects on human health, especially COVID-19. 5G functions on a sub-6 GHz radio signal, just like most 4G networks and the microwaves that sit in kitchens. It’s safe to say that if these radio signals could cause metabolic change in animals or people, then it is possible that the world would have experienced this a long time ago. Yet, there has been no public health scare simply because there is no measurable connection that has been made between these signals and our health. This makes the case for COVID-19 being spread through 5G null and void. It is also important to note that information from WHO websites indicate that ongoing studies have yet to provide any type of connection between the radiation from the radio signals in our smartphones and other devices, and human health.
Still not convinced?
Well look at it this way; IF 5G is indeed responsible for COVID-19, how does one then explain the virus outbreak in countries that have no 5G connectivity?
It is true that the current pandemic has put us all in a constant state of worry. The one thing that has been proven time and time again, is that people tend to fear the things they are ignorant of or just can’t seem to comprehend.
Still need more proof to settle your concerns?
Here’s a seven-year long scientific study, published recently, that could have all the answers you seek.
