The Fact About 5G Network And COVID-19 According to Experts That Nigerians Need to Know

There has been news making the rounds that 5G affects our health as humans.
What many want to know now is the experts’ view on this viral matter.
Question 1: ‘Does the 5G network affect our health?
Question 2: ‘Can 5G Accelerate the action of COVID-19?
Question 3: ‘Is the low cases of Coronavirus in Africa, Nigeria inclusive, as a result of the absence of the network?

Let’s take things one after the other. The reason you are here is probably that you have either listened to a WhatsApp broadcast claiming that 5G harms human health.

If that is not the case, you probably have stumbled at a viral video either on YouTube or somewhere else of Keri Hilson, a popular American actress and singer or Thomas Coman, a controversial American Doctor.

Well, the summary of whatever video you watch is that they both believe and preached that the network makes it easier for Disease to attack humans. Making many people believe that the network must have accelerated the action of Coronavirus because the City of Wuhan where the virus emanated is in full operation on it.

Well, their arguments seem logical until you start to have deeper thoughts. If you say that the network is why the rate of COVID-19 in Africa is low, then what about countries like France, Malaysia and Singapore who are not on 5G network as confirmed by AFP Fact Check.

For more comprehensive information on this matter, I will advise you to read the articles written by these expert media houses.

1. BBC, please click HERE to read.

2. AFP Fact Check, please click HERE to read.

3. FULLFACT.ORG, please click HERE to read yourself.

BBC believes, based on evidence gotten from an expert through fullfact.org that the news making the round is false and that there is no truth in the claim.

Mayowa Tijani of AFP Fact Check established in his article that the story making the round is false and there is no truth in it. He cited quotes from experts like Fabien Heliot who specialises in the research about electromagnetic waves.

He also quoted the WHO and another researcher a Yusuf Sambo, at the University of Glasgow, who is currently working on the 5G in Scotland.

All these experts debunked the claim. It does not affect Coronavirus infection.

Fullfact.org also debunked the viral scare that network affects how Coronavirus infects humans or made it worse.

Now, before we go back our questions asked in the headline, let me show you some of the reactions from Nigerians about this matter of discussion.

So now you have seen funny reactions right? Yeah, that is kinda crazy but let’s now summarize the conclusion by going back to our questions asked earlier.

Question 1: ‘Does the 5G network affect our health?

To an acceptable extent! But not in the way of huge impact. The truth of the matter is that everything technology we use affects our health to some extent. According to the article by Tijani, See HERE, he quoted WHO where they admitted that the radiation has just small effect like the normal call we make generates some radiations but they are within the acceptable standard and there is no evidence of it accelerating diseases according to them.

Question 2: ‘Can 5G Accelerate the action of COVID-19?

No! The explanation so far by experts shows that it doesn’t Accelerate disease infection based on the research that has been done so far by the scientists. This is based on the statement attributed to WHO by Tijani of AFP Fact Check.

Question 3: ‘Is the low cases of Coronavirus in Africa, Nigeria inclusive, as a result of the absence of the network?

No! Expert has not given any very strong reason as to why the spread of Coronavirus is not much in Nigeria and Africa as a whole, however, there have been speculations that the high temperature might have contributed to the lesser number of cases.
