5G network towers are being burned across Birmingham, Merseyside and other places as some social media posts are claiming that 5G causes Coronavirus. The COVID-19 pandemic has now taken over almost the whole world and many of the people believe it is spreading due to 5G towers. Many of the verified profiles with thousands of followers are sharing the same on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube that 5G is causing coronavirus.
There is no evident relation between 5G and Coronavirus and the whole rumor is completely rubbish as per the Scientists and medical experts. Here are more details on the 5G causes Coronavirus conspiracy theories and what are the views of top Scientists on the claim.
5G Network causing Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories
There are several conspiracy theories floating on the internet which claims that 5G technology is the main reason why Coronavirus disease is spreading so rapidly. It says that 5G network used in mobile phones is spreading the virus through radio waves. Here are the two main claims that every 5G Coronavirus conspiracy theory is claiming:
- 5G Network suppresses and weakens the human immune system which is the main reason why so many people are infected with the Coronavirus disease and easily catching the virus.
- The other theory is more stupid as it says that the Coronavirus is spreading somehow through the 5G technology and the waves are carrying the virus.
Scientists on 5G and Coronavirus Relation
Most of the notions given in the 5G cause Coronavirus theories have no logic or science behind them. The human immune system cannot be dipped by any such thing, and there is no way a 5G tower will make you susceptible to catch the virus. It is true that 5G towers generate some heat but the level is nowhere close that it will affect humans as per the studies.
If 184 countries have corona and only five countries have 5G towers why the fuck would you idiots think 5G towers are causing COVID-19

The radio waves in 5G technology are on the low frequency end of the electromagnetic spectrum that is not strong enough to damage cells, unlike the higher frequency medical x-rays. As for the 5G spreads the virus, digital virus and the biological virus spreading corona are totally different. There is no way 5G can cause Coronavirus and all such claims are totally meaningless and a bunch of stupid tinfoil theory.
