Conspiracy Theorists Grasping at 5G
There are always those who will believe the most phenomenal theories when they someone with scientific authority says comments on it. That is the case with the conspiracy theory that the radiation from 5G cell towers creates COVID-19. It could not possibly be true because people are being infected worldwide and in areas where 5G technology does not even exist. 5G is a relatively new technology and is not in widespread use, but these people have glommed on to it as the cause of this pandemic. With the prevalence of social media, our current hunkered down status, and people’s interest in COVID-19 these theories spreading into mainstream social media conversations faster than the virus itself.
