US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Rumors about the impact of 5G mobile towers on the spread of coronavirus infection have no reason and are complete nonsense, said the ex-Minister of Justice of Great Britain Michael Gove. It is reported by Reuters.
In the early days of April, several cell towers were set on fire in Birmingham, Liverpool, Melling and Merseyside. It is suggested that these arsons may be related to rumors about the effect of 5G towers on coronavirus infection, distributed in the UK.
“It’s just nonsense, and it’s dangerous nonsense,” said former British Justice Secretary Michael Gove, who commented on these rumors.
The head of the National Health Service of England, Stephen Powis, added that such ideas have no scientific justification and may interfere with a quick response to emergency situations.
“This 5G story is complete nonsense, the worst of fake news. The reality is that we all absolutely need mobile networks … These networks are used by our emergency services and healthcare. I am outraged that some people are destroying the infrastructure that is needed to respond to this emergency in the healthcare sector, ” Powis emphasized.
On March 31 the Federation Council of the Russian Federation approved a law toughening the punishment for disseminating knowingly inaccurate information about coronavirus.
