5G Technology Health Risks


There are many 5G technology health risks that are being proclaimed around the world like wildfire. The 5G health issues stem from:
1. the implementation of the 5G technology in some European and Asian countries, and the possible imminent rollout of 5G to many other countries and continents.
2. the unfolding, vicious coronavirus / COVID-19 pandemic.

There are concerns about the possible health dangers that could be brought upon individuals and communities by 5G technology. The worries are due to the fact that even 4G technology, which involves much less radiation, still carries risks, and has already been anecdotally observed to cause adverse effects affecting different systems of the body.

Also, there has seemingly not been enough research into 5G devices. It is just new technology, the real adverse effects of which will become more apparent as time goes on, according to some authorities.

The efficiency of 5G network over 4G technology and earlier generations is not in question.

But opponents of 5G technology, feel that installing 5G technology globally or in individual countries, will be one giant leap into the dark. The consequences will be dastardly. But there have been some reassuring news:


5G technology health issues are valid concerns, which sadly have not been answered satisfactorily by the powers that be. What is regrettable, is when these genuine, founded concerns, get clouded by conspiracy theories, and stories get brandished around, about certain business interests and countries.


This is an even more unfortunate conspiracy theory! It is alleged that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which started in December 2019 in Wuhan China, was set off and is being perpetuated by 5G towers! This is a total fallacy.

There is no connection between 5G towers or devices, and the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19.


COVID-19 is an INFECTIOUS DISEASE, caused by the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The Coronavirus has no relationship with 5G radiation. It is not caused by, or spread or perpetuated by 5G towers.

There are countries that have no 5G towers, but which have some of the highest COVID-19 statistics in the world.

Also, the small kingdom of Lesotho in Southern Africa, was the first African country to put 5G technology on trial. But up to end of April 2020, Lesotho was one of few countries in the world that had no single confirmed COVID-19 case! It eventually became officially (as per the World Health Organisation, WHO) the Last African Country to Report a COVID-19 Case, at a time when other African countries without any experience of 5G technology, were already having COVID-19 statistics in the thousands.

The Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is one of many Coronaviruses belonging to The Coronaviridae. This is a family of about 40 species of related viruses, which have been around the universe for millenia, some causing disease in animals, and others causing disease in humans.

The diseases caused by Coronaviruses in humans are well-known, and include the common cold or coryza.

A woman blows her nose that is stuffy due to common cold.
Coronaviridae have been known for millennia, causing common cold and other conditions in humans.


The characteristics of the diseases, just like those of COVID-19 (in the case of symptomatic victims), are typical of infectious diseases, and include fever. These symptoms, cannot be brought about by electromagnetic radiation such as that of 5G devices.

Also, there are inflammatory markers that indicate infection, that can be measured in the blood of COVID-19 patients.


Although seemingly obscure to many people, corona is a Latin word that means CROWN. In Spanish, LA CORONA. In Chinese, Wángguàn (王冠). In French, COURONNE. In Portuguese, COROA. In the Sesotho languages of Southern Africa, KORONE (same as in Ancient Greek). And in Swahili and Zulu, two of Africa’s most widely spoken languages, TAJI and UMQHELE respectively.

This is a word that has been in use in Astronomy, Architecture, Anatomy, etc, for centuries. And of course, also in Microbiology / Virology, where it describes the shape of the viral particles. That the word has now brought so much confusion, conspiracy theories and panic, is surprising and deeply regrettable.

The unscientific stories are dividing Humankind, and diverting the attention and resources of the global community from the most pertinent current issues, which are the COVID-19 pandemic, and the risk-benefit assessment of 5G technology.


Twenty-first Century life is very fast and demanding. It requires Information Technology equipment that can process huge volumes of data, without compromising on speed. Currently existing technologies inevitably have to be continually improved and refined.

But as technology improves, utmost care has to be taken to ensure that the health of individual humans, and human populations, is not put at continually increasing risk. Intensive, well designed research, and international collaboration will definitely go a long way towards realising this safety and reassuring the public.

But on the other hand, attention has to be drawn to the fact that there IS a lot of misinformation about Communications Technology and especially 5G. This misinformation stems from inadequate understanding, sensationalism (blowing issues out of proportion), but also seemingly from outright malice (as in conspiracy theories).

On a positive note, there are indeed various forms of devices and gadgets that can be used to protect ourselves while we use ALL FORMS OR GENERATIONS of radiation emitting equipment. Links to some of these devices have been provided in Paragraph 2 above.

I will write another article on this website, to further clarify the 5G issue (here – 5G Technology Dangers).

  1. This is what I worry the most for my little ones. Thank you for sharing some of EMF blockers. 🙂

    1. Hi Maureen,

      You are most welcome!
      I am glad you found the article helpful. Please do budget for the blockers, or go ahead and purchase if you had already planned to do so.
      Warmest regards. 😊

  2. Helo there, a big thanks to you for sharing this insightful and educational article on 5g technology, health risks. I have really heard so many things about the 5g technology and the risks attached to it which prompted me to making more research on it so as to get a more concised information on it. I must say this article really helped. I have seen so many answers to almost all my questions. Thanks

  3. Hello there, This is an amazing article that you have shared here. We have been hearing diverse news about the 5g technology and the risk effect that is attached to it. However, There have been much controversy as it relates to the 5G tech and the corona virus both amongs Christians and nations. Even if the 5g has a kit of benefits they should atleast consider the negative effects it brings.

  4. I was unaware until now about the 5G technology health risks that are out there.

    I am glad that you have made an article stating the dangers as well as the means to protect yourself and others from the 5G radiation.

    It is always good to know what to do to stay safe.

    Thank you for this informative article!

    1. You are welcome Alex! As the radiation increases (and that includes 4G), we need to protect ourselves. Keep a safe distance from our devices. Minimise the length of calls (and not to touch our ears with the phone). Switch the set off where there is no signal as the phone emits too much radiation when searching for the signal. Put the phones far from our beds at night, etc etc.

  5. I’ve heard these stories also and i tend to agree that there are potential hazards with 5G radiation. I suppose we need to keep our distance from these sources as much as possible. 5G radiation, like other forms, lessens over distance. This is similar to the rule of squares used in photography when setting up lights. The radiation from 5G may lessen slower.

    That rumor that 5G carries or generates the Corona Virus is complete hogwash. It just ain’t so!

    My webiste is in development and any comments are appreciated!

  6. I don’t know much about these stories relating to the implementation of 5G networks, but I’ve heard that EMF pollution may be at the forefront of the health problems associated with it – do you believe that this is true?

    1. Hi Simon,

      It is a bit confusing right now. There are some studies by some authorities which have come out in recent months and weeks (e.g. the UK), which say the EMF radiation from 5G towers will not pose Health problems.
      On the other hand, there are Scientists who are concerned in various countries. Switzerland had begun a roll-out of the technology, but halted it around Feb.
      I think the world should err on the side of caution. Maybe more research is needed before a complete roll-out.
