5G Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory United Kingdom
Speaking at a Downing Street briefing on Saturday, Michael Gove dismisses a popular conspiracy theory that the coronavirus outbreak may be linked to 5G networks. NHS England Professor Steve Powis also claims that the theories are untrue after several videos were uploaded on social media services that show 5G masts being set on fire.

West Midlands Fire Service said eight firefighters were called to an incident involving a 70-foot tower on a telecommunications site in the Sparkhill area of Birmingham, UK, although the exact cause of the fire could not be determined. Research into the safety of radio signals, including those given off by 5G towers, has been conducted for over 50 years. This led to the establishment of human exposure standards as well as safety factors that protect against all established health risks. The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport claims that there is currently no credible evidence of a link between 5G and coronavirus.

I’m absolutely outraged, absolutely disgusted, that people would be taking action against the very infrastructure that we need to respond to this health emergency. It is absolute and utter rubbish,” said Professor Powis.
