5G ROLLOUT AND COVID-19
On September 26, 2019, Wuhan, China turned on fifth generation (5G) wireless and officially launched 5G on November 1, with a grid of about ten thousand antennas—more antennas than exist in the whole U.S.—all concentrated in one city. Soon we began hearing about a strange new illness coming from this highly industrialized location. A spike in cases also occurred on February thirteenth, 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 the fall of 2019
—in uptown, midtown and downtown Manhattan, along with parts of Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens—all of which became subsequent coronavirus hot spots. Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Cleveland and Atlanta soon followed, with some five thousand towns and cities now covered.
Europeans have also seen a strong correlation with 5G rollout. Bartomeu Payeras i Cifre, a Spanish epidemiologist, has charted the rollout of 5G in European cities and countries with cases per thousand people. His analysis demonstrates “a clear and close relationship between the rate of coronavirus infections and 5G antenna location.”4 For example, the city of Milan and other areas in the northern part of the country have the densest 5G coverage, not Rome.
Even though the major airport in Italy is in Rome, northern Italy has twenty-two times the number of coronavirus cases.
In Switzerland, telecommunications companies have built out more than two thousand antennas, but the Swiss have halted at least some of the 5G rollout due to health concerns. Per capita, Switzerland has had far fewer coronavirus cases than the nearby countries of France, Spain and Germany, where 5G is going full steam ahead.
Of particular note is the small country of San Marino, the first country in the world to install 5G (in September 2018). Its citizens have had the longest exposure to 5G and the highest coronavirus 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 coronavirus is slight to non-existent.
Iran announced in February 2020 that it “had carried out all preparations needed for launching the 5G network” and had completed its expansion of related 4G-LTE infrastructure “to almost all cities, towns and villages across the country.”5
The first Covid-19 cases there correlate with this announcement.6
Korea has installed over seventy thousand 5G bases and, by mid-March, had reported over eight thousand cases of illness. 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 and Ecuador, and in Mexico, all of which have many coronavirus cases. Countries without 5G (such as Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and Paraguay) have not reported any cases, even though sanitation in these countries is likely more primitive.
Paraguay is doing what all countries should do—building a national fiber optics network without resorting to 5G.
The 5G system has also been installed on modern cruise ships and in many health care facilities. In addition, health care facilities bristle with electronic equipment, some of it located right by the heads of very sick patients. People who suffer from electrical sensitivity cannot go near many hospitals and nursing homes.A SOUP OF 4G AND 5G FREQUENCIES
5G broadcasts in a range of microwave frequencies (24-72 GHz). Frequencies in this range (below the frequency of light) are called non-ionizing, in contrast to ionizing radiation, which has a higher frequency than visible light (see Figure 1). Ionizing radiation, such as x-rays, causes electrons to split off atoms (obviously something to which one should limit one’s exposure). Instead of producing charged ions when passing through matter, non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation changes the rotational, vibrational or electronic valence configurations of molecules and atoms. This produces thermal effects—think microwave ovens—but also well-documented non-thermal effects.7
While the telecommunications industry flatly denies any non-thermal effects on living tissue, a large body of research suggests considerable harm to the delicate electromagnetic systems in the human body from constant exposure to non-ionizing frequencies—headaches, tinnitus, fatigue, rashes and even cancer. 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.8

The fact that some 5G transmitters broadcast at 60 GHz is of particular concern. According to telecommunications industry literature, this frequency is highly absorbed by oxygen,9
causing the O2 molecule to split apart and making it useless for respiration. Think about the implications of oxygen that doesn’t work to support life! Also of interest is the U.S. military’s possession of crowd control devices that operate in the ranges of 6-100 GHz. The military’s 95 GHz Active Denial System can penetrate the skin and produce intolerable heating sensations, causing people to move away from the beam.
The technological changes converging to build out 5G networks include a massive “densification” of 4G networks as well as expansion into the millimeter wave frequency bands, particularly (in the case of the latter) in urban areas.10
M illimeter w aves g o o nly a short distance and cannot penetrate buildings. In response, a few tech startups are working to get the 5G signal into the areas where we work, play and sleep. For example, Pivotal Commware is testing an “Echo 5G In-Building Penetration Device.”11
Pivotal’s offices are about one mile from the Life Care nursing home in Kirkland, Washington, where the illness first appeared in the U.S., and where twenty-five residents died. Was the Life Care center a de facto
testing ground for Pivotal’s new device?
Let’s consider some of the symptoms reported in connection with Covid-19. Guidelines published in 2016 by EUROPAEM EMF, a nonprofit watchdog organization, state that “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.” Describing common symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (also called microwave illness), the authors cite “headaches, concentration difficulties, sleep problems, depression, lack of energy, fatigue, and flu-like symptoms [emphasis added].”12
A study published in Oncology Journal
describes lung injury from radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses shorter waves at close range for a shorter period of time. It stands to reason that 5G millimeter waves—with 4G transmitters nearby pulsing massive amounts of frequency day and night—could also cause lung injury. According to the study’s authors, “Depending on the dose and volume of lung irradiated, acute radiation pneumonitis may develop, characterized by dry cough and dyspnea (shortness of breath).”13
Another coronavirus symptom: fizzing. According to the New York Post
, many Covid-19 patients report strange buzzing sensations throughout their body, “an electric feeling on the skin” or skin that feels like it is burning.14
Those who are electrically sensitive report similar sensations when they get near a cell phone or use GPS-guided cruise control in their cars. Other reported coronavirus symptoms include a loss of smell and taste,15
fever, aches, breathlessness, fatigue, a dry cough,16 diarrhea,17 strokes and seizures18—all symptoms documented by those who are electrically sensitive.https://www.westonaprice.org/health-topics/is-coronavirus-contagious/
