Dear Nigerians, 5G Network Is Not The Cause Of Coronavirus

April 6, 2020

One more 5G network conspiracy theory and I will be sick. Do you know what kills faster than fear? Wrong information.

There is a fraudulent message being passed around on Whatsapp that 5G network causes Coronavirus and that’s just tragic. The message is spreading faster than it takes for souvenirs to finish at a Yoruba wedding, so that’s alarming.

Yesterday, the Nigeria Communications Commission which is tasked with providing efficient communication services in the country debunked rumors that 5G is linked to Coronavirus.

Here are some important points from the briefing:

What is 5G network?

5G network danger

In summary, 5G is 4G’s elder brother.

Should I be worried about 5G?

5G network danger

Nothing to be worried about.

Does 5G cause Coronavirus?

5G network danger

No, it doesn’t.

Who owns 5G network?

5G network danger

It belongs to no one and it also belongs to everyone.


I hope with these few points of mine, I have been able to convince and not confuse you that 5G is not our problem. As Nigerians, we have endless options of problems to pick from so let’s not manufacture non-existent ones.

Take your mind off all these wahala and get lost in articles of happiness below:
