5G networks could spread Novel Coronavirus.

COVID-19 virus spreads through respiratory droplets or touching contaminated surface and viruses cannot travel/spread through mobile/radio networks.

Viruses cannot travel on radio waves or mobile networks. COVID-19 is spreading in many countries that do not have 5g mobile networks. COVID -19 is spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person cough, sneezes or speaks or comes in contact with a contaminated surface.

To date and after much research performed no adverse health effect has been causally linked with exposure to wireless technologies.

International Telecommunications Union's Spokesperson Monika Gehner, told the theory of a link between 5G and COVID-19 is 'a hoax that has no technical basis'.

The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
