Many people have been sending me internet videos claiming that there is no coronavirus (Wuhan virus) but that the COVID-19 disease is caused by 5G telephony signals, which are slowly being installed around the world. In some cases the argument is that 5G network emissions at 60 GHz ionises oxygen molecules in the air and that inhibits peoples ability to breath. Here I would like to assess this claim in light of what I do know to be true.
I am a PhD physicist who has spent more than 20 years working in the field of microwave signal generation, building ultra stable microwave oscillators (or clocks). I do know something about physics especially at frequencies between a few GHz and 100 GHz. That is, I know something about microwave and millimetre wave radio physics.
The argument that 5G telephony radiation causes COVID-19 disease is total nonsense. It is false from a factual physical perspective. In the following I present some objective facts (which don’t depend on opinion).
