In late January, these theories appear to have first emerged thru Facebook posts, around the same time when the first cases were recorded in the United States.

They appear to fall broadly in to two camps:

  1. One claims that 5G can suppress the immune system, thus making people more susceptible to catching the virus, and,

  2. The other suggests the virus can somehow be transmitted through the use of 5G technology.

Dr. Simon Clarke, Associate Professor in cellular microbiology at the University of Reading, says that these notions are "complete rubbish." This idea of 5G lowers your immune system doesn't stand up to scrutiny and your immune system can be dipped by all sorts of thing - by being tired o
