Many have contacted us to inquire about our view on the 5G and the COVID-19, which is daily killing many world-wide. Firstly, this Techy conversation is not considering the Myths, assumption, and spirituality across the globe on how 5G is the cause of the virus but to scientifically explain to the best of our knowledge, clarify and provide information.

What is 5G


 J. Andrews et al 2014 research on 5G and concluded that it will be the paradigm shift that includes very high carrier frequencies with massive bandwidths, extreme base station and device densities, and unprecedented numbers of antennas. However, unlike the previous four generations, it will also be highly integrated: tying any new 5G air interface and spectrum together with LTE and WiFi to provide universal high-rate coverage and seamless user experience. To support this, the core network will also have to reach unprecedented levels of flexibility and intelligence, spectrum regulation will need to be rethought and improved, and energy and cost efficiencies will become even more critical considerations.

5G at the moment has the speed of ~50Mbit/s to over 2Gbit/s.  The electromagnetic waves which 5G uses are like what is used for passive remote sensing such as weather and Earth observation satellite, which may cause interference when many of these satellite range waves are spread all over the earth en masse. Another generation of telecommunication technology has a health concern which is related to the radiation from cell telephone towers or masks and cell telephones which cause headaches and tiredness. However, the increase in the bandwidth and frequency can be scientifically agreed that more electromagnetic hypersensitivity should be expected. Although this has not been scientifically recognized, exposure to electromagnetic fields such as the one proposed for 5G needs more control and governments need to policy.

COVID-19 disease caused by Coronavirus 2019

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an infectious disease that is genetically related to the coronavirus responsible for the 2003 SARS outbreak (same time 3G technology became adopted). COVID-19 is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) which was first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province and has since spread globally,  Which has resulted in a pandemic that has killed up to 67,999 and confirmed infected 1,249,107 worldwide by 04- 04 2020  detailed statistics can be seen on this link by GOOGLE. COVID-19 symptom includes fever, cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain, diarrhea, sore throat, loss of smell, loss of taste and sore throat.

Some personal thought

I found this  CNN report on January 28, 2020. A professor in the person of Professor Charles M. Lieber was arrested on the charges of making false statement to the US. Department of defense and I quote “The complaint alleges that Lieber had lied about his affiliation with the Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and a contract he had with a Chinese talent recruitment plan to attract high-level scientists to the country. He was being paid $50,000 per month by the Chinese university and given $1.5 million to establish a nanoscience research lab at WUT, the complaint said”. It is noteworthy to state that Wuhan University of technology and Professor Charles Lieber were involved in large-scale research that could take on such huge investment and talented researchers to work on it and not forgetting the secrecy of this research. Likewise, it is noteworthy to state that Professor Lieber is an expert and renowned researcher on Nanotechnology.

In addition to Professor Lieber case, there were other cases of arrest that happened close to that period  according to Dan Evon:

  1. Yanqing Ye, 29, a Chinese national, was charged in an indictment today with one count each of visa fraud, making false statements, acting as an agent of a foreign government and conspiracy. Ye is currently in China.
  2. Zaosong Zheng, 30, a Chinese national, was arrested on Dec. 10, 2019, at Boston’s Logan International Airport and charged by criminal complaint with attempting to smuggle 21 vials of biological research to China. On Jan. 21, 2020, Zheng was indicted on one count of smuggling goods from the United States and one count of making false, fictitious or fraudulent statements. He has been detained since Dec. 30, 2019.

In addition, I investigated and observed that there is a couple of research conducted on the usage of the virus in nanotechnology and it has many usages such as nanoparticles. Empirical research states that nanoparticles present possible dangers both medically and environmentally particularly, in cell membranes in organisms, imagine the effects when a virus is now added.

I am not an expert in this area of research however, I more finding is needed. even Nigeria see 5G as a key technology to adopt as discussed in our February 2020 post
