If you want scientific evidence that there may be a connection between the coronavirus (C-19) and exposure to radio frequency radiation from wireless tele-communications including 5G then a recently published scientific paper may provide the hard evidence you are looking for.


The news about the dangers of 5G technology and its links to coronavirus have been spreading online and on social media for some time now.

However the mainstream media persist in calling these theories “fake news”.

In their coverage of this issue they claim there to be a lack of any scientific evidence to support these theories.

The major government health institutions are also denying that 5G and Wi-fi could be a risk to public health.

For example, Pubic Health England have said with the addition of 5G networks, “there should be no consequences for public health”.

The independent fact-checking charity Full Fact have also concluded, “there is no evidence that 5G WiFi networks are linked to the new coronavirus.”

5G and Wi-Fi

Concerns about 5G technology have been around long before the coronavirus outbreak.

So why do so many people continue to spread these stories (about 5G), and why do the authorities continue to call these stories fake news?

Here’s how the frequencies work.

5G uses radio waves to transmit mobile data over its networks, just like with 4G and 3G. It uses a frequency at the lower end of the electromagnetic spectrum, which means the waves are not strong enough to damage human cells. 

Frequencies at the higher end of the spectrum can be harmful to humans, such as x-rays or ultra-violet light.

However, 5G is well below this level, with measurements showing it is 66 times below the safety limit for harmful radiation set by international guidelines.

David Robert Grimes, a physicist and cancer researcher has claimed;

“The radio wave band – used for mobile phone networks – is non-ionising, “which means it lacks sufficient energy to break apart DNA and cause cellular damage.

Higher up the electromagnetic spectrum, well beyond those frequencies used by mobile phones, there are clear health risks from extended exposure. 

The sun’s ultra-violet rays fall within this harmful category, and can lead to skin cancers.

There are strict advisory limits for exposure to even higher energy radiation levels such as medical x-rays and gamma rays, which can both lead to damaging effects within the human body.

People are understandably concerned over whether they might elevate their risk of cancer, but it’s crucial to note that radio waves are far less energetic than even the visible light we experience every day.

There is no reputable evidence, that mobile phones or wireless networks have caused us health problems.”

New Research

The year 2020 witnessed a global health crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Countries across the world are using digital technologies to fight this global crisis. These digital technologies strongly rely, in one way or another, on the availability of wireless communication systems.

A paper published by Beverly Rubik and Robert R. Brown aims to outline the role of wireless communications in the spreading of viruses (including the COVID-19 pandemic) from multiple perspectives.


The following is an abstract from their paper. The full research paper can be viewed via the link at the end of this article.

Background and Aim: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) public health policy has focused on the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus and its effects on human health while environmental factors have been largely ignored.

In considering the epidemiological triad (agent-host-environment) applicable to all disease, we investigated a possible environmental factor in the COVID-19 pandemic: ambient radiofrequency radiation from wireless communication systems including microwaves and millimeter waves.

SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic, surfaced in Wuhan, China shortly after the implementation of city-wide (fifth generation [5G] of wireless communications radiation [WCR]), and rapidly spread globally, initially demonstrating a statistical correlation to international communities with recently established 5G networks.

In this study, we examined the peer-reviewed scientific literature on the detrimental bioeffects of WCR and identified several mechanisms by which WCR may have contributed to the COVID-19 pandemic as a toxic environmental cofactor.

By crossing boundaries between the disciplines of biophysics and pathophysiology, we present evidence that WCR may:

(1) Cause morphologic changes in erythrocytes including echinocyte and rouleaux formation that can contribute to hypercoagulation;

(2) Impair microcirculation and reduce erythrocyte and hemoglobin levels exacerbating hypoxia

(3) Amplify immune system dysfunction, including immunosuppression, autoimmunity, and hyper-inflammation;

(4) Increase cellular oxidative stress and the production of free radicals resulting in vascular injury and organ damage;

(5) Increase intracellular Ca2+ essential for viral entry, replication, and release, in addition to promoting pro-inflammatory pathways;

(6) Worsen heart arrhythmias and cardiac disorders.

Relevance for Patients:

In short, WCR has become a ubiquitous environmental stressor that we propose may have contributed to adverse health outcomes of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 and increased the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Therefore, we recommend that all people, particularly those suffering from SARS-CoV-2 infection, reduce their exposure to WCR as much as reasonably achievable until further research better clarifies the systemic health effects associated with chronic WCR exposure.

And Finally…

Radio-frequency radiation (RF) is increasingly being recognised as a new form of environmental pollution.

It has been argued that the addition of these high frequency 5G radiation bands to an already complex mix of lower frequencies, could contribute to a negative public health outcome both from both a physical and mental health perspective.

Like other common toxic exposures, the effects of radio-frequency electromagnetic radiation (RF EMR) will be almost impossible to analyse epidemiologically as there is no longer an unexposed control group for scientists to study.

This is especially important considering these effects are likely magnified by synergistic toxic exposures and other common health risk behaviours.
