The Coronavirus Conspiracies

Claim: 5G causes COVID-19

There are also variations where people claim there is no virus, it is completely 5G.


This is going to be very much a copy and paste of the 5G conspiracy.

It's extremely easy to debunk this. Firstly, a country like Switzerland who has the infection under control has a huge infrastructure of 5G, and countries like Iran or Russia have large outbreaks and no 5G.

Extracts from the page mentioned above:

Beginning of the infection

According to a study in The Lacet.

"In December, 2019, a series of pneumonia cases of unknown cause emerged in Wuhan, Hubei, China, with clinical presentations greatly resembling viral pneumonia."

So that's our baseline. December 2019.

5G Rollout timeline

Here's the problem. If we just talk about the UK which has a huge problem with the pandemic

-Vodaphone went live on the 10th of July 2019 in seven cities including London.

-EE went live on the 30th of May 2019 in six largely populated cities

-BT went live with 5G on the 11th of October 2019 in 71 towns and cities

-o2 launched their 5G on October 17th 2019 in 6 major towns and cities.

-Voxi went live with 5G on the 29th October 2019 off the Vodafone network


Infection maps vs 5G maps

If 5G did indeed make the Coronavirus infection worse or even cause it, we'd expect to see them in the same place, right?

Here is a table of the number of Coronavirus infections per country from Worldometers.

Here is a world map of 5G coverage from Speedtest.

Now it's logical to assume the more densely populated the area, the more infection we would see. It's also logical to assume that companies would want 5G to be accessible to more people initially, so more densely populated areas would receive 5G first.

As of May 4th 2020 when writing this:

-Russia has no 5G coverage but has 145,268 COVID-19 cases.

-Canada has JUST turned on 5G  and has 59,844 COVID-19 cases. Their first case was January 25th 2020.

-Brazil hasn't yet got 5G and has 101,8726 COVID-19 cases.

-Iran hasn't yet got 5G and will launch it next year and has 98,647 COVID-19 cases.

-Turkey hasn't yet got 5G coverage but has 126,045 COVID-19 cases.

-Spain has 18 5G towers over the entire country, yet has 248,301 COVID-19 cases (world's 2nd highest)

-France has suspended 5G rollout yet has 168,693 COVID-19 cases. (World's 5th highest)

Here's one I found interesting:

-Switzerland has a massive 5G infrastructure with 572 towers in their tiny country and yet only have 29,981 COVID-19 cases.


Just to put the nail in the coffin of this one, a study titled 5G Technology and induction of coronavirus in skin cells which has since been withdrawn for it being a completely unscientific frabrication has been labelled the Worst paper of 2020.

It's just plain false. The UK, for example, had 5G for over 7 months before COVID-19 arrived. This claim holds less water than a bucket with no bottom.
