5G networks have no causal connection to COVID-19, contrary to rumours on social media.
Viruses, not radio waves caused COVID-19, thereby proving this theory wrong. Dr Jonathan M Samet, a professor at the Colorado School of Public Health confirmed that the story had no credence scientifically and that it was a potential distraction from controlling the COVID-19 pandemic. The NHS England Medical Director has also termed it as fake news.
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.
