|The Truth About 5G And Coronavirus In Nigeria by Allnewsngr123: 6:16am On Apr 06, 2020|
Numerous conspiracy theories circulated on and off social media claim that the fifth-generation wireless technology, (5G) mobile networks are the cause of the novel coronavirus (covid-19) pandemic, Allnews reports.
While public figures in Nigeria like Dino Melaye and Pastor Chris Oyakhilome have bought into that claim and sold them to the public on Friday and Saturday respectively, the averment can be traced to March 16, 2020, when popular American singer Keri Hilson in series of now-deleted tweets asserted that covid-19 is caused by 5G.
“People have been trying to warn us about 5G for YEARS. Petitions, organizations, studies…what we’re going through is the effects of radiation. 5G launched in CHINA. Nov 1, 2019. People dropped dead,” Hilson wrote.
“Turn off 5G by disabling LTE!!! Why do you think the virus is not happening in Africa like that? Not a 5G region.
"There may be a few bases there, but not as prevalent as other countries. It has nothing to do with melanin.”
Hilson backed up her claim by sharing a viral YouTube video in which controversial American doctor Thomas Cowan, who remains on probation imposed by the Medical Board of California, argued that the novel coronavirus was created by 5G networks.
In his video, Cowan claimed that Wuhan (in China), the city where the novel coronavirus was first discovered in late 2019, was the first city wholly covered by 5G in the world.
Some of these claims about 5G causing novel coronavirus have been made in Facebook and WhatsApp posts shared hundreds of times.
Apart from the 5G allegation, some other conspiracy theories as China wanting to usurp the US as the world's most powerful nation; creation of a new world order (Anti-Christ) being proposed, amid other yet-to-be-verified statements are bandied around.
Apostle Suleman Johnson of the Omega Fire Ministries did air this conspiracy views too.
In fact, the televangelist categorically declared that covid-19 is not real.
"Covid-19 is an experiment. And now, they are rejoicing that they could shake the world. And they would wait for another two years," Suleman said.
"In 2022, something worse will happen and it would also originate from them.
"The world leaders are coming together to have a synergy that will make all religions have a common ground, and the Pope (Francis) is part of it.
"America is their target, but the President is their obstacle.
"America should not joke with the next election, because they all will support the opponents of the current President."
Continuing, Apostle Suleman said:
"The opponent is not the issue, but his running-mate is.
"The running-mate is a lady. And if the opponent wins, the opponent will be impeached for the lady to take over and fulfill the new world order.
"Their current agenda is to humiliate him (Trump). They (referring to China) have succeeded in making him mockery in America while they are now free from it.
"But the prayers of the saint will reverse it and America will be healed.
"The virus was manufactured by these people. It is not a biological issue, it is a chemical weapon.
"Many people contracted it through testing. Once you go for the test, you are infected.
"The few that are not positive is to balance the equation. To make people believe it is real," Suleman had said.
5G Network In Nigeria
About two months ago, Allnews had reported how the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) became the first network regulator in West Africa to try out the 5G.
Umar Danbatta, the Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission said that the 5G will be under three months trial before a proper decision on approval and rollout will be made.
Meanwhile, trails have started already in Abuja, Calabar, and Lagos to determine apart from internet speed, what other benefits will the new fifth-generation network guarantee.
