Why do people link 5G networks and coronavirus?

5G networks began to be deployed in cities and countries in 2018, but became as widespread as possible in 2019. -In Wuhan, China, the world's first coronavirus outbreak was registered in late 2019.

Individual Internet users shared two maps of the United States, indicating that the areas most affected by the Covid-19 Coronavirus were also locations where 5G networks had been installed.

However, there was an entirely different explanation. These are densely populated areas: large settlements that are inherently more vulnerable to coronavirus proliferation. They are also more likely to have used 5G networks before. Simply because of the need to improve communication between people.

Iran, for example, has not deployed 5G; it is one of the countries most affected by the pandemic.

Upgrading the wireless infrastructure has previously tried unsuccessfully to link it to other diseases, the same thing happened this time with the coronavirus.

Many adherents of 5G and Coronavirus are associated with initiative groups that have long argued that wireless airwaves cause cancer. Although there is no credible evidence to support this claim at this time.

Studies show that radio frequency waves emitted by cellular phones do not have enough energy to directly damage DNA or heat body tissues. Their energy levels are lower than those of common technologies such as microwave ovens and television sets. Moreover, 5G signals actually penetrate objects worse than 4G signals, so 5G networks require much more small cells close to each other.

There is an authoritative International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), a group of independent scientific experts who examine how exposure to electromagnetic fields used by mobile phones and other devices affects human health. The organization claims that there is no link between the functioning of 5G and the coronavirus.

"The theory that 5G can endanger the immune system and thus threaten people with coronavirus is unfounded," said Eric van Rongen, chairman of ICNIRP, in an email to CNN.

Meanwhile, in the UK and the Netherlands there have been several cases of arson from unknown 5G mobile phone towers.
