In a recent interview with CNBC, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg refuted rumors that the deployment of 5G was somehow connected to the proliferation of COVID-19.
According to Vestberg, there is absolutely no connection between 5G and the coronavirus. Simply false information, He stated that Verizon intended to dispel the rumors “by our communication, the industry’s communication, and via the communication of health organizations.”
Vestberg was referring to statements made by health groups as well as debunking data on wireless technology and health that can be found at www.wirelesshealthfacts.com.
According to the international scientific community, radiofrequency energy from wireless devices and networks, including radio frequencies used by 5G, has not been shown to cause health problems, according to that website, which includes references and quotes from wireless communications bodies and health organizations in support of that claim.
Additionally, the website provides a link to a WHO webpage that explains how COVID-19 is transmitted through respiratory droplets and how viruses cannot move across radio waves or mobile networks.
Although there is no scientific proof linking coronavirus to 5G, conspiracy theories linking the two have proliferated on social media. As a result, 5G towers in the UK were set on fire, and people harassed those installing fiber optic lines.
Tom Warren, a coworker of mine, has created an explanation of why these conspiracies are absurd.
