There are many types of conspiracy theories going on around the world regarding the coronavirus (Covid-19). With this, some say that this is the bio-weapon that China has made, so many people believe that it is happening because of 5G. At many places, 5G concept theory is being more trusted and hundreds of such videos have been made on YouTube.
Mobile towers are being targeted
According to a Guardian report, some people set fire to 7 mobile towers in Birmingham, UK last week. Not only this, but some of those who believe in this theory of theory have also even spoken abusive words to Broadband Engineers. Even in this report it has been said that they have been threatened.
What is Corona and 5G Conspiracy Theory?
There is a plethora of content on social media, instant messaging apps and YouTube where 5G is reported to have spread the coronavirus. Also speaking of 5G, it is a 5th generation wireless communication technology with cellular data network support. It has been started for large scale trials in the last year i.e. 2019.
There are two types of theory theories
Broadly, the corona and the 5G concept are of two types. However, such Facebook posts are being shared since late January. There are two sections that believe in this theory. The first section claims that the immune system is weakened by 5G and in such a situation people fall prey to the virus. The second section, ie the section that shares this theory theory, believes that the virus is being transmitted through 5G technology. Now it has become an epidemic. But is it really so?
Scientists call it ‘rubbish’
According to a BBC report, Dr. Simon Clarke, an associate professor of cellular microbiology, has said that both types of things are utter nonsense. They also say that it is wrong to say that 5G affects the immune system of people. Apart from this, many experts and scientists have also misunderstood this theory of theory and said that nothing has been revealed so far. So that it can be proved that the cause of the spread of coronavirus is 5G.
