February 8th, South African local time, the South African Scientific Research and Industrial Research Council held a media briefing to refute the rumor that “5G technology causes COVID-19 virus variation”.
Recently, with the ravages of the COVID-19 epidemic in South Africa, rumors about “5G and COVID-19 virus” have once again attracted attention in South Africa.
In response, the South African Council for Scientific Research and Industrial Research introduced the characteristics of 5G technology and whether there are health risks through media briefings.
Aisa Surman, a senior researcher at the South African Council for Scientific Research and Industrial Research, said that there are many “conspiracy theories” related to high-speed transmission technology.
The above-mentioned “5G technology causes the variation of the COVID-19 virus” is the most popular one at present, but through scientific analysis, its related remarks and statements It’s all groundless and wrong.
He stressed that 5G technology has been launched in many countries or regions of the world, and there is no evidence that it affects human health.
But at the same time, many countries or regions that have not launched and used the technology have maintained a high level of COVID-19 infection rates, so it cannot be proved that 5G technology has brought the spread of the virus.
“Look at the world map of the COVID-19 epidemic released by the World Health Organization, many of the world do not launch 5G. The country or region is rampant, so those who think the epidemic is related to 5G technology are undoubtedly absurd.” He said.
