  • “As ‘evidence’ that the new coronavirus is a cover-up for 5G, the post shows a screenshot of a Google search result for “symptoms of 5g exposure.” While the image seems to be a genuine screenshot of what comes up when you search this phrase online, the displayed in the Google result is not from an official source and seems to be written to sell a number of products.”
  • “And regardless, the claimed symptoms of 5G exposure shown don’t match the symptoms of the new coronavirus. The post claims that symptoms of 5G exposure include nausea, hair loss and bone marrow damage but the symptoms of Covid-19 include fever and coughing. Other symptoms include shortness of breath, aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea.”

The article also notes:

  • “As we’ve written about before, there is no evidence that 5G is harmful to humans. 5G is the next generation of wireless network technology, following on from 4G. Like 4G, 3G and 2G before it, 5G mobile data is transmitted over radio waves—a small part of the whole electromagnetic spectrum (which includes microwaves, visible light and X-rays). These radio waves are non-ionising, meaning they don’t damage the DNA inside cells.”

Fullfact “provide free tools, information and advice so that anyone can check the claims we hear from politicians and the media”. They “don’t support any view or political party and have rigorous safeguards in place at every level of our organisation to protect our neutrality”. They “rely mainly on donations from people like you and from charitable trusts. A wide range of funders helps us maintain independence”
