Over the past few days, multiple conspiracy theories have sprung up over the issue of 5G technology. Many of them claiming that 5G is the cause of the corona virus. These allegations have led to widespread panic and even the burning of 5G masts in the UK. What started as merely rumors is now a full-fledged theory with even politicians supporting it. Today we will find out if it is true that 5G can cause Corona virus.
What is 5G?
5G is the fifth generation of mobile technology. It is essentially an improvement to the current 4GLTE. Imagine watching a match live on the net and it would feel like you were in the stadium. Or imagine playing a game smoothly without any lagging. That’s how fast this new technology is. Definitely, 5G will be extremely beneficial to all.
However, like all its predecessors, 5G emits radiation. This radiation can weaken the body’s immune system. It is this radiation that has led people to believe that it is evil. First off you must know that all radiations can weaken our immune system in excessive amounts even UV rays from the sun. However, a professor in cellular microbiology Dr. Simon Clarke has debunked claims that 5G can destroy the immune system.
He also stated that the idea of 5G being the cause of Coronavirus is utter nonsense. “The idea that 5G lowers your immune system doesn’t stand up to scrutiny,” Clarke tells BBC. While strong radio waves cause heating and weaken the immune system, 5G is nowhere near capable of doing that. Furthermore, 5G waves are not even capable of penetrating the human body as they are on the low-end of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Can 5G cause Corona Virus?
The answer to that question is NO. 5G is not the cause of the novel virus. Professor of pediatrics Adam Finn says that the epidemic is caused by contact between infected persons and non-infected persons. “Viruses and electromagnetic waves that make mobile phones and internet connections work are different things. As different as chalk and cheese” he also added.
Another reason not to believe this theory is that the Corona virus is present in countries where 5G has not even been deployed yet. Places such as Ghana, Nigeria, and Iran etc. are also facing the disease despite not having 5G.
Now you know the truth that 5G is not responsible for the Corona virus. Do well to educate others by sharing the post. For more news, click here.
