Recently we were asked why so many 5G-related conspiracies had been popping up. Such as, “Does 5G really cause coronavirus?”…
The short answer to this is we don’t know, because these conspiracies are not founded in science 🔬
However, new things can be scary when you don’t understand them❗ And the appearance of a brand new virus at the same time as an increase of new technology could understandably be confusing and frightening.
So here is our quick and easy breakdown of what 5G is! 📲
5G is just like 4G, 3G and 2G before it – they’re 𝕣𝕒𝕕𝕚𝕠 waves, a type of energy that isn’t known to cause damage that leads to cancer.
The potential impact of radio waves on cells would just be like a burn, but this would need energy FAR higher than your phone could ever reach! 🔥
COVID-19 is caused by a virus, a coronavirus named SARS-CoV-2 🦠 which transmits through droplets that you let out when you sneeze and cough. Nothing to do with technology, just a bug passing between people the usual ways! 5G, does not cause coronavirus.
