FAKE Alert: No, 5G is not spreading the Coronavirus

Several claims have been circulating online claiming that the 5th Generation or 5G technology used on cellular phones for the Internet is responsible for spreading the Coronavirus.

In fact, the hashtag #Idonotconsent to 5G has multiple posts under it in the month of April.

The claims garnered further attention when tennis player Novak Djokovic’s wife Jelena shared a post on her Instagram pointing to a correlation between 5G and the spread of Coronavirus. The post was later taken down.
