The Emperor’s New Virus: COVID-5G

The Emperor’s New Virus
By Paul Raymond Doyon

A Synopsis of the Article
(Updated April 7th, 2020)

Could there possibly be a connection between the spreading coronavirus and the installation and implementation of 5G- and IoT-wireless technology? Naturally, a virus is a virus and it is certainly going to spread, because that is what viruses do, whether we have 5G or not. People catch viruses, they spread, people get sick, and unfortunately, some people die. And then the virus disappears. So… people need to understand, first of all, that I am not saying that 5G is causing the coronavirus (COVID-19). And we will most certainly find the virus in places where there is no 5G. Furthermore, there are many factors that are going to influence its spread and its numbers in different countries: e.g., a country’s level of hygiene, the amount of people visiting from other different countries, whether it has a homogenous population or a heterogenous population, the general health of the population, and so on, etc.

Rather, what I am suggesting here is that the 5G wireless radiation is most likely a large factor most likely because it may very well be (1) weakening people’s immune systems, and also (2) making the virus more virulent. There is ample evidence to support both of these hypotheses or theories.

And furthermore, everyone should know that one instance of correlation does not necessarily mean there is causation. However, when we have multiple instances of correlation, coupled together with evidence of causation, then the case we are trying to make here becomes that much stronger. What we are doing here is making observations, noticing correlations, gathering evidence to support causation, and making logical inferences. It is what we all should be doing rather than either, on the one hand, regurgitating what we hear on TV and/or read in the media or, on the other hand, making completely off-the-wall unsupported-by-facts (or only-supported-by-one-or-a-few-facts) speculations.

At present, (as of this writing on April 7th, 2020) the United States, the country supposedly having the most advanced medical system in the world, has the highest number of cases at 368,174, followed by Spain (140,510), Italy (132,547), Germany (103,717), France (98,010), and China (81,740). On the other hand, countries with supposedly much less advanced healthcare systems like Montenegro (239), Cuba (363), El Salvador (78), Cambodia (115), Laos (15), Myanmar (22), Zimbabwe (10), Mozambique (10), and so on — countries without the 5G technology have exponentially (and that is an understatement) lower numbers.

These are the facts:

·      We have a “mechanism of action” by which “voltage gated calcium channels” (VGCCs) opened up from EMF exposures allow calcium to enter into the cell with the calcium stimulating and feeding the virus.
·      We have thousands of research studies conducted by scientists showing biological effects (many of them adverse) as well as hundreds of studies showing immune system effects from exposures to electromagnetic fields. Many of these studies were actually conducted by the US military.
·      We are seeing all kinds of very possible biological effects connected with the rollout of 5G, but unfortunately, the majority of people may very well not be connecting their symptoms with this invisible hazard which they cannot sense with their five senses — in other words, “Out of sight, out of mind.”
·      We are seeing the highest number of cases in countries that have implemented the 5G and/or are conducting full-scale trials versus those that have or are not. These are predominantly countries like China, South Korea, the United States, and Western European countries. We are seeing less cases in countries with less or none of this technology as of yet like many countries in Eastern Europe, Southern Asia, Africa, and South America.
·      Approximately, 10,000 5G antennas were installed and turned on in the city of Wuhan shortly before the outbreak of the coronavirus. This is approximately the same number of antennas as there are in the whole U.S.A. This means that for the people of Wuhan this 5G radiation is very highly concentrated and that they have been and continue to be blasted with higher-levels of high-frequency and more highly modulated forms of electromagnetic radiation that these 5G systems bring with them. (The country of China itself has the largest number of 5G antennas presently installed at 130,000.)
·      Wuhan’s (and other Chinese) hospital systems have also been recently implementing 5G and IoT technology, meaning that patients who enter these hospitals are also being blasted with this 5G and other forms of electromagnetic radiation while they are trying to recover from both the coronavirus and other illnesses. These exposures may very well be impeding their recovery process.
·      Other places in China that had also been quick to implement the 5G systems in their cities and provinces had higher numbers of both coronavirus cases and deaths. For example, the city of Hangzhou, in Zhejiang Province, very recently — before the outbreak — installed thousands of 5G antennas in its city limits; and the city of Wenzhou, also in Zhejiang Province, has been trialing and implementing both the 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technology with thousands of antennas for both these systems recently installed in its city. Both of these cities have/had inordinately high numbers of the coronavirus and were both on lockdown.
·      China started to offer 5G commercially on November 1st, 2019 (and in some places on October 31st, 2019).
·      The second country to have the greatest number of 5G antennas concentrated in a relatively small area is South Korea, with approximately 75,000 antennas. South Korea also had — in one point of this saga — the second highest number of coronavirus cases and one of the highest death rates of the coronavirus after China. The United States has the third highest number of towers at 10,000 and has now taken the lead as the country with the highest number of COVID-19 cases.
·      Italy was — and still is — the third country with the greatest number of cases. Italy has been trialing and implementing 5G in numerous cities, with the city of Milan, in the province of Lombardy, being a real hotbed of both the coronavirus and the full-on trialing of 5G wireless technology plastering a good majority of the city in wireless 5G radiation.
·      Iran was (also at one point in this saga) the fourth country with the greatest number of COVID-19 cases and one of the highest death rates. And while Iran is not officially implementing 5G, there is ample reason to believe that they have installed a 5G system throughout their country are now secretly trialing it.
·      We are seeing numerous people with extremely mild cases of the virus, as one would see in a normal case of a cold virus, with only a slight cough, headache, fever, etc. Naturally, some people have more robust immune systems than others, but could there possibly be something else (i.e. 5G radiation) that might be making the cases much more severe for many other people.
·      The Diamond Princess and other cruise ships are being outfitted with the latest in wireless technology which includes thousands of WiFi, cellular, and IoT antennas. The Royal Princess, for example, had been one of three of the Carnival cruise ships (as of May, 2019) “outfitted with more than 7,000 sensors, 4,000 interactive digital portals, and a couple of datacenters) — which are then connected with thousands of guest smartphones and wristwatch-like devices called Medallion wearables, which constantly keep track of passengers. 5G has been trialed on cruise ships and should soon be making its commercial debut on these ships. Certainly, being in close quarters together with people infected with COVID-19 is going to contribute to its spread. However, could the amount of EMFs onboard these ships also be contributing to its spread?
·      We are dealing with a multi-trillion-dollar industry that will not play fair in order to protect its profits, and has its arms in the media, in the scientific community, and in government. And while we believe that the Truth will eventually prevail, it has been and will continue to first be ridiculed and attacked.

These are all facts, facts which support a hypothesis or theory. And it is probably the most believable and logical hypothesis out there at the moment for those willing to actually look at it and consider it. Many of the so-called “conspiracy” theories out there seem to be solely based on one or two facts and then on wild conjecture. For example, a conspiracy theory floating around in China is that America planted the virus. Many Americans, on the other hand, believe it was a virus that escaped from a lab in Wuhan. There are few facts and little evidence to support either of these theories. In fact, a number of prominent independent virologists have come out and debunked these theories And the more likely theory, which we have here — supported by the facts outlined in the article — is that we have a normal virus that is made more virulent, for one, by the 5G frequencies, and two that the 5G radiation is weakening immune systems allowing that virus to act to a greater degree in the host as an opportunistic infection.

The Emperor’s New Virus: COVID-5G
And, Yes, 5G Does Have Everything to Do with the Coronavirus!
By Paul Raymond Doyon
(Updated April 7th, 2020)

"To allow the market mechanism to be the sole director of the fate of human beings and their natural environment indeed....would result in the demolition of society." — Karl Polanyi

“If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” — Albert Einstein

“In the beginner’s mind, there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind, there are few.” — Shunryu Suzuki

My heart goes out to now not only China — but now the rest of the world — and to all its people who have suffered so much due to this new “novel” Wuhan coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). However, as someone who had become very sick and had his immune system completely break down —and was sick for six months looking under every rock for answers before even suspecting that living in close vicinity to several cell phone towers was actually what was causing the problem and making him sick — I feel I cannot in good conscience remain silent, and I strongly suspect that China and the rest of the world are looking under the wrong stone, so to speak, for what is actually the real problem here. At the moment, with 10,000 recently installed 5G antennas plastering its city, Wuhan is probably one of the most 5G-electropolluted cities on the planet.

Electrosmog Warnings from Scientists for Over 40 Years
Respected scientists, researchers, doctors, and activists have been — for over forty years — warning us about the dangers of wireless radiation and electromagnetic fields. In 1977, the reporter Paul Brodeur published a book called The Zapping of America; in 1985, the late Dr. Robert O. Becker (twice nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his work on cellular dedifferentiation and re-differentiation in the healing process) wrote The Body Electric, and later published Cross Currents: The Perils of Electropollution, The Promise of Electromedicine in 1990; in 1995 (and again later in 2007), B. Blake Levitt, author and researcher, published Electromagnetic Fields: A Consumer's Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves. Since then, there have been a slew of other books and documentary movies put out on the subject. And the list goes on and on.

Dr. Leif Salford, Swedish neuro-oncologist, has called this wireless rollout

“the largest biological experiment ever” [1] [emphasis added].

And Dr. Robert O. Becker wrote in 1985 that

The dangers of electropollution are real and well documented. It changes, often pathologically, every biological system [emphasis added]. What we don`t know is exactly how serious these changes are, for how many people. The longer we as a society, put off a search for that knowledge, the greater the damage is likely to be and the harder it will be to correct. (p. 304) [2]

And finally, Dr. Martin Pall, PhD, and Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences at Washington State University, has stated recently that

Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world [3] [emphasis added].

The BioInitiative

In 2007, a report titled the BioInitiative was published, it was republished again in 2012, and there have been ongoing updates between 2014 and 2019. Its website states that

the BioInitiative 2012 Report has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. [4]

These are highly respected scientists coming from some of the world’s most respected universities and institutes. [5]

The BioInitiative further warns

… that evidence for risks to health has substantially increased since 2007 from electromagnetic fields and wireless technologies (radiofrequency radiation). The Report reviews over 1800 new scientific studies…. Health topics include damage to DNA and genes, effects on memory, learning, behavior, attention, sleep disruption, cancer and neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s disease. New safety standards are urgently needed for protection against EMF and wireless exposures that now appear everywhere in daily life. [6]

5G Warnings
With the coming advent of the newest in wireless technology, 5G, numerous researchers, doctors, and professional and activist organizations have been administering health warnings regarding its coming implementation. [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13] [14]

And even recently, there were marches in major cities throughout the world protesting the advent of this technology.[15]

In fact, a paper published in Aug. 2019 in the journal Frontiers in Public Health titled “Risks to Health and Well-Being from Radio-Frequency Radiation Emitted by Cell Phones and Other Wireless Devices,” [14] pre-warned of the following with implementation of 5G:

“systemic effects such as on immune function”

“acceleration of bacterial and viral replication.”

Warnings Have Fallen on Deaf Ears
Unfortunately, for the majority of the population, these warnings have fallen on deaf ears, with the seemingly widely held view out there deeming 5G to be the next best thing since Ben & Jerry’s™ Cherry Garcia™ ice cream. Of course, the downplaying of the hazards is understandable given the extreme benefits and conveniences all this technology has continuously offered an increasingly technology-hungry, yet unsuspecting, populace. Unfortunately, many of these people — manipulated by a corporate-controlled media — are also often quick to ridicule, marginalize, and ostracize those who try to warn of these dangers by labeling them as Luddite tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorists, until, of course, either they or someone close to them suddenly gets sick and they then see a possible connection with these EMF exposures, and then suddenly there is a change of tune, and they are quick to inquire about what they can do to protect themselves: e.g. how to shield their homes and offices, what meters to buy. One really has to wonder when one hears the exact same clichés being regurgitated over and over again by so many people. In the following BBC video, entitled, “Electrosensitivity: ‘I didn’t believe people had it, then it happened to me’,” [16] Emma shares her experience:

Insomnia, fatigue, tinnitus, ringing in the ears, nausea, burning sensations, and twitching, muscle twitching. I didn’t believe people that had it, and then it happened to me. And that’s when I was like, “This is not happening. This can’t [be] happening. This is not real.” But then it was totally real because I was getting all these symptoms. It’s so hard being in this modern world as a young person where people’s lives are on technology because my life was on technology. I worked in social media. So that was my life before I got sick. It’s very lonely. It’s very isolating….

In the city of Ripon, south of Sacramento, California, a 5G antenna was removed from a primary school, after some parents there started to suspect that it was linked to a number of cancer cases in the school. [18]

5G and the COVID-19 Outbreak in China and Around the World
The recent COVID-19 outbreak has spread around the world stimulating mass fear and mass hysteria across the planet, with the majority of deaths and 99 percent of infections initially occurring within China, [20] — mainly in the city of Wuhan itself.

In fact, the highest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths outside of China have been in places already substantially implementing or trialing 5G technology: for example, South Korea, which has the largest number — 75,000 — of 5G antennas outside China (130,000) has at present (March 30th) 9,661 cases and 158 deaths, in Europe, and especially Italy, which has been quick to start trialing and implementing this 5G technology in numerous cities and provinces [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] throughout its country, has had at present 97,686 cases and 10,779 deaths, and now in the United States, we are seeing the largest number of cases at 142,793 cases and 2,490 deaths. [26]  If we look at the color-coded “Global Map of COVID-19” (downloaded Mar 19, 2020), created by the Chinese expat group, Expat Focus, [27]  we can clearly see the countries with the highest numbers (1000+) in red, followed by the next highest group (100-999) in orange, followed the number 10-99 in yellow, 1-9 in blue, and 0 cases in gray.

Expat Focus Map [27]
And it becomes clear that the highest number of cases have been highest in China, South Korea, Western Europe, and the United States, all pretty much presently shown in red, with cases at 1000+. Now, if we look at some maps showing 5G trialing and/or implementation, we will notice a definite correlation between the number of COVID-19 cases and the trialing and implementation of 5G. While the following map is slightly misleading— as for example, Russia has been only trialing 5G in a few cities – (and not completely up-to-date, as, for example, the US 5G commercial area presently has a much larger swath) it does gives us a general idea.

If we look also at the following map, (which isn’t completely up-to-date either, as for example, France and Japan are already engaging in full-blown trials), we can get an even more complete picture of the 5G situation in each area of the world.

It should also must be noted here that limited trialing (which can consist of only trialing by setting up antennas in a part of one or a few cities for a very limited period of time) and full-blown trialing, (where large areas of a country are covered with 5G with antennas blanketing an area for long periods of time) are very different. Finally, by doing online searches for each particular country combined with the words “5G” or “5G trials,” we can get a more complete picture of what is happening in each particular country. So, for example, if we look at the website, Worldometer, [26] which is tracking the COVID-19 numbers in respective countries around the world, we can see that all the countries at the top of the list with the most numbers are all countries into fully implementing or fully trialing the 5G.

However, if we look at the countries at the bottom of this list with the least amount of COVID-19 cases, and google search each one of them, we find that none of them has yet to implement or even trial 5G, though in Fiji there is talk of 4G+ or Pre-5G, which seems to mean they are getting ready for 5G, but are not there yet.

And if we go from the top of the list to the bottom, for the most part, we can clearly see that at the top we have the countries that are either fully in the process of implementing the 5G technology or are engaging in full-blown trials, to countries that are in the process of trialing it, to the countries that have yet to trial or implement it.

5G and COVID-19 in Western and Eastern Europe
If we look more closely at a map of COVID-19 cases in Europe, we can see that there is a much higher percentage of cases in Western Europe than in Eastern Europe.

Expat Focus Map [27]

The majority of Western European countries are already in the red here, while those in Eastern Europe are still in the orange or yellow.

And if we look more closely at 5G maps of Europe (though these are not 100% up-to-date, as France, for example, is already in full-blown trials), we can definitely see that there is definitely much more 5G implementation in Western Europe than Eastern Europe.


Almost all of the major Western European countries with extremely high rates of COVID-19 as of March 23, 2020, like the U.K (5,683), Germany (24,873), France (16,018), Italy (59,136), Spain (28,768), Switzerland (7,474) have either fully implemented 5G or are engaging in full-blown trials. However, for example, if we look at countries with “exponentially” — and I mean “exponentially” — fewer cases of COVID-19 (as of March 23, 2020), like Bulgaria (187), Albania (89), Belarus (76), Ukraine (73), Azerbaijan (65), Georgia (54), and Montenegro (22), we can see that they have not implemented, have not started trialing 5G, are preparing to trial 5G, or are only engaging in very limited 5G trials.[30] [31] [32] [33] [34] [35] [36] [37]  For example, it is stated on the CMS Tax Law website, “CMS Guide to 5G” that “5G is not available in Albania yet and there is no clear indication on the expected dates for roll out,” [32] and “5G is not available in Ukraine yet,” [34] and for Bulgaria, “The launch of 5G is expected by the end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021.” [31]

5G and COVID-19 in Italy. According to the above cited articles, Italy has started trialing and implementing 5G technology in the following cities: Rome, Milan, Naples, Florence, Bologna, Turin, Torino, Genova, Lucca, Verona, Liguria, Port of Livorno, Prato, L’Aquila, Bari, and Matera. In the online article, “Italian telcos get ready to reach more cities with 5G in 2020,” [22] it is stated that

Italian operators kicked off commercial 5G offerings in parts of the country’s main cities during the second half of 2019 and have already announced plans to rapidly expand coverage during 2020.

Vodafone was the first operator to offer commercial 5G services in Italy. The telco, owned by UK telecommunications group Vodafone Group, launched the technology in five cities across the country in June 2019.

Initially, the 5G service was available in Milan, Turin, Bologna, Rome and Naples. The company used equipment from Nokia and Huawei for the deployment of commercial 5G.
At the time of the launch, Vodafone Italy said it expects to add around 45 to 50 cities to 5G coverage during 2020. Aldo Bisio, Vodafone Italy’s CEO said that the telco’s 5G technology will reach more than 100 Italian cities by 2021.

Rival operator Telecom Italia (TIM) had previously announced that it expects to provide 5G technology in at least 120 cities and 200 tourist destinations across Italy by 2021.
By that year, TIM also plans to provide 5G coverage for 245 industrial districts and 200 specific projects for big businesses.

The carrier initially launched 5G services in parts of Turin, Rome and Naples in July 2019. TIM’s 5G offering was also expected to cover Milan, Bologna, Verona, Florence, Matera and Bari by the end of 2019. The telco also announced plans to cover 30 tourist destinations throughout Italy, 50 industrial districts and complete 30 dedicated 5G projects for large companies by December 2019. [22]

However, the city of Milan — in the province of Lombardy, the hotbed of 5G technology development in Italy [38] — (not to mention the other cities around Milan where 5G is also being trialed) has also seemingly been the center of the area where COVID-19 has also really taken root, and the whole province of Lombardy was the first to be on a quarantine lockdown. [39]

We definitely wanted to invest in order to not, for once, not just try the technology in a lab but bring it to life and bring it to the field, to people, realizing basically what we now call the open lab for 5G in the city…. Milan was giving us the opportunity to deliver tests and develop new applications across all sectors. We’re working with 38 partners and we are developing 41 plus use cases, actually we are almost close to 50, investing 90 million Euro to achieve, not only 90% of the services, plus 80% of the population coverage in order to have that theater to work on…. But one thing was in common to all the partners… to understand what 5G would bring, not only to their own business, but to society in general. So we had the hospital, we have hospitals in the partnership….[38]

So here we have it. Milan and its surrounding areas are being plastered with 5G radiation — including its hospitals — and it is also the area where we are seeing one of the worst outbreaks and highest death-rates of the COVID-19 outside China. More evidence to support the theory.

Here is a Google Map of 5G antennas in Italy, (courtesy of Giorgio Cinciripini, Executive Vice President at the Italian Electrosensitive Association).

Another possible factor for the extremely high rates of coronavirus in Italy may also have to do with the fact that Italians, more than other nationalities, are also one of the highest users of cellphones and smartphones on the planet. [42] [43] And if the research conducted by Roger Coghill (cited below) [159], which shows that just having a cell phone on your body weakens your immune system, holds any truth, and I believe it does, then by talking on one for one or more hours a day, which a lot of Italians seem to do, they may very well indeed be further weakening their immune systems through this excessive use of their wireless devices.

5G and COVID-19 in Iran? While the exception has been Iran — at present (March 31st, 2020) has 41,495 cases, and 2,757 deaths 26 — which is officially not implementing it, but very well may secretly be trialing it given the reason why

on December 1, 2018, at the request of the US government, Meng Wanzhou — Huawei’s CFO and daughter of its founder — was arrested in Canada on allegations she participated in a conspiracy to defraud banks in connection with Iran sanctions violations, [44]

was indeed because Huawei was working to sell their 5G technology to the Iranians. In fact, Iran — in a joint operation between Irancell and Ericsson —  had started trialing the technology back in September of 2017. [45] In the article, titled “Irancell, Ericsson Test 5G Systems,” (2017) it is stated that

the technology will be available by 2020 and become globally accessible a year later.
During the event at Irancell headquarters, the company’s CEO Alireza Dezfouli said “We are aiming to keep pace with the international operators. Iran will not be left behind again.” [45]

 Furthermore, a number of articles in the media, have stated that Iran has carried out “preparations” and is ready to launch 5G. [46] [47] [48]  Well, preparations always include trialing.

Hence, given the facts that (1) Iran had started trialing the technology back in 2017, (2) the CFO of Huawei has been arrested for allegedly selling the 5G technology to Iran amid sanctions, (3) Iran’s assertions that it is keeping pace with the international operators and will not be left behind with the technology, and (4) the fact that Iran has stated that it has carried out preparations and is ready to launch 5G, it is easy to fathom that Iran already has the 5G infrastructure set up and they have been secretly trialing it.

5G and the COVID-19 in the USA
The USA — where we also see COVID-19 taking a major foothold with at present 164,266 cases (on March 31, 2020, up from just over 1000 on March 11, 2020) — has been very quick to offer and expand 5G services in the past year with a large portion of the country already being blanketed in 5G radiation. Below we have just the T-Mobile 5G Coverage Map, and we cannot forget the other three USA telecoms, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint not far behind in offering 5G up on the table.

At present, (March 31st, 2020) the worst effected states are (1) New York with 67,325 cases and 1,342 deaths, (2) New Jersey with 16,636 cases and 198 deaths, and (3) California with 7,426 cases and 149 deaths. [26] Washington State was one of the first to start experiencing outbreaks and was up there in one of the states having the most outbreaks. So, for example, if we take a closer look at Seattle, Washington, one of the places in the USA where we initially saw a sharp rise in both cases and deaths, we can see very clearly that the whole area is blanketed in 5G radiation.

EvergreenHeath Hospital in the Seattle, Washington suburb of Kirkland was the scene where initially 15 people reported died of the COVID-19. [50] According to a lecture by German Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, [51] who runs a medical practice nearby,

This is where the hospital is in Kirkland. Kirkland is one of only five cities in the US that is firmly wired for 5G for a few months, and Evergreen Hospital is probably the only hospital in the country wired for 5G. Not that they're using it yet, but it's wired, and it's broadcasting. Could there be a connection to the high death rate? At this point, there is a question. [52]
Looking at California, (as of March 31st, 2020) for instance, where the number of coronavirus cases are also very high, we could see that Santa Clara County, has the highest number (848) in California, outside of Los Angeles (2,505), and the highest in the Bay Area, though neighboring Alameda County (283) and San Mateo County (309) are also very high. 

Santa Clara County — home to many high-tech companies like Google, Apple, NetFlix, NVIDIA, Intel, Sun Microsystems, Oracle — is naturally a hotbed of 5G technology and is blanketed with 5G radiation from AT&T wireless.

And yet, we still see very few cases in neighboring Santa Cruz County (45) and nearby Monterey County (40) yet to implement the 5G technology.

Los Angeles County, with the highest COVID-19 cases, presently at 292, is blanketed in 5G by both T-Mobile and AT&T giving the residents a seemingly double dose of 5G radiation.

San Diego County, also blanketed by T-Mobile 5G radiation, and home to the tech giant, Qualcomm, also has a relatively high number with 603 cases (as of March 31, 2020).

5G and COVID-19 in Asia
The countries in Asia to have fully implemented the 5G have been China (130,000 5G antennas) and South Korea (75,000 5G antennas). These have also been the countries in Asia with the highest numbers of COVID cases with China at 81,518 cases in total and South Korea at 9,786 cases in total (as of March 31, 2020). Malaysia is now third with 2,626 cases and Japan is fourth with 1,953 cases. Malaysia has been trialing the 5G since October of 2019. In an article titled “Malaysia starting 5G trials in October,” [55] it is stated that

Malaysia yesterday said it will start a nationwide demonstration of 5G projects next month, indicating it is on track to become one of the first Asian countries to launch the technology….

"It is hoped that Malaysia's early commitment to 5G, to rapidly deploying 5G test beds and nationwide demonstration projects, will position the country as one of the leaders of 5G adoption in the world," Minister of Communications and Multimedia Gobind Singh Deo told an industry event. [55]

In another article titled, “Malaysia’s 5G a step closer to reality,” [56] it is further stated that

Currently, the commission along with other stakeholders and companies are running 5G demonstration projects across six states; Kedah, Perak, Penang, Selangor, Terengganu and Kuala Lumpur, involving an initial investment of RM143 million. [56]

Japan has also been trialing the 5G technology since September of 2019 in 40 locations with plans to provide coverage in 45 prefectures by the end of June, 2020. [57] It has also been conducting limited trials using its technology in Thailand and Singapore.

NTT DoCoMo previously said that it plans to expand its 5G commercial services service to 45 prefectures across Japan by the end of June 2020.

The company’s President and CEO, Kazuhiro Yoshizawa, said during a conference call with investors that the firm expects to deploy 10,000 5G base stations by mid-2021. The operator is currently rolling out 5G services on the 3.7 GHz, 4.5 GHz and 28 GHz bands.

NTT DoComo had launched pre-commercial 5G services in 40 locations on 20 September. Since that date, users in Tokyo and other major cities in the nation, including Nagoya and Osaka, are able to experience 5G technology ahead of the full commercial launch. [57]

The other countries in Asia — also presently (as of March 31, 2020) with relatively low numbers of coronavirus cases, Indonesia (1,414), Singapore (879), Thailand (1,651), the Philippines (1,546), Taiwan (322), Vietnam (204), Cambodia (107), Laos (9), Myanmar (14), etc., — are presently getting ready to trial, are trialing, or are implementing 5G technology on a very limited scale. 
So perhaps the real reason Taiwan has so few cases, is not because of its quick response, as is being touted (after all, South Korea and other countries with very high numbers were pretty quick to respond to the outbreak in China), but rather because it has yet to implement, let alone trial, the 5G. [76] And perhaps the fact that both Myanmar and Laos have so few cases, is rather due to the fact that they have not either. [77]

5G and COVID-19 in China
At least 10,000 5G Antennas Installed in Wuhan Alone

What has not been apparent in the news reports is the fact that China in its rush to take the lead in the 5G race, had by the end of 2019 (and mostly within the last several months leading up to the COVID-19 outbreak) installed 130,000 5G antennas throughout the country,  [78] with at least 10,000 antennas installed in Wuhan alone. [79] (As a comparison, the USA only has approximately 10,000 5G antennas presently installed throughout the whole country.)

“Wuhan City, the capital of Hubei, is expected to have 10,000 5G base stations by the end of 2019…” [79]

According to previous reports, the three operators were expecting to operate nearly 130,000 5G base stations by the end of 2019.”  [80]

Wuhan: One of the Initial Cities Trialing 5G
In fact, Wuhan was one of the initial 16 cities selected to trial 5G back in 2018.

China Unicom will begin testing 5G network in 16 cities including Beijing, Tianjin, Qingdao, Hangzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, Guiyang, Chengdu, Shenzhen, Fuzhou, Zhengzhou, and Shenyang.

China Mobile will conduct external field test and set up more than a hundred 5G base stations in each of the following five cities: Hangzhou, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Suzhou, and Wuhan. [81]

From the article, “Wuhan 5G Industry Development: Five-Chain Coordination, Three-Wheel Drive,” (武汉5G产业发展:五链统筹 三轮驱动), [82] (written in Chinese) published October 11th, 2019, it becomes clear that Wuhan was in a race with other Chinese cities to position itself at the forefront of 5G technology, and with approximately 10,000 5G antennas in place, is probably one of — if not the most — 5G-radiated city in China:

At present, Wuhan is seizing major developmental opportunities in 5G commercialization, with the construction of a national first-class 5G network as a guide, with the development of a national first-class 5G industry as the main body….

…Wuhan City has fully implemented the "Wuhan 5G Base Station Planning and Construction Implementation Plan," with an extraordinary policy effort, to guide and support basic telecommunications companies and China Tower Corporation to accelerate the construction of 5G networks. This year and next, Wuhan will build more than 20,000 5G base stations, form a 5G basic network with leading scale, first-class quality, and strong demonstration to ensure full coverage of the 5G network in the city and be at the leading level among similar cities in the country. [82]

Finally, it was stated in an article titled “5G network coming to Wuhan,” (April 16, 2018), that “3,000 macro base stations and 27,000 micro base stations” would soon be constructed, and that by 2020, the “5G network will cover every corner of the city and be available at an affordable price.” [83] This means that there may in fact be a lot more than just 10,000 antennas in Wuhan, though 10,000 alone would very likely make Wuhan one of the most 5G concentrated cities in the world.

5G Systems Deployed in Hospitals

What is also concerning here is that China has, since about November of 2019, been installing 5G systems in its hospitals.  [84] [85] [86] [87]

“Key Chinese hospitals, leading telecom carriers and Huawei Wednesday launched a project to establish standards for 5G-based networks in hospitals.” [84]

“China released a pioneering standard for its 5G hospital networks, following a joint drafting and verification process between the medical and telecommunication industries.” [85]

5G Systems Installed at Wuhan COVID-19 Hospitals
And to seemingly add insult to injury here, Huawei was very quick to install 5G systems in the new COVID-19 hospitals — Wuhan Volcan Mountain Hospital and Thunder Mountain Hospital — the two hospitals known for only being built in just over a week. [88] [89] The two articles cited here are perhaps ironically titled, (1) “Huawei installs 5G in China Hospital to fight COVID-19,” and (2) “Huawei builds 5G in Wuhan Hospital, aims to indirectly fight the COVID-19” as this might very well be the complete opposite of what they are indeed intending to do here. There is also an interesting video on YouTube entitled “Chinese hospitals deploy robots to help medical staff fight COVID-19 outbreak,” [90] demonstrating this in action.

Chinese Telecoms Started Offering 5G Commercially in Nov, 2019
The Chinese telecom companies started to offer commercial 5G services to its customers on the first of November last year.

China’s  three major wireless carriers— China MobileChina Unicom , and China Telecom —will begin selling 5G services to consumers on Friday, November 1st in 50 major cities, including Beijing and Shanghai, said Chen Zhaoxiong, vice minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Thursday October 31st at a Beijing conference….

The Chinese government has made building 5G a national priority, clearing red tape and reducing costs so the three wireless providers introduce the new technology as swiftly as possible.  “They’ve made this a national priority. It’s part of the [Communist] Party‘s ability to show that it’s delivering the goods,” said Paul Triolo, head of geo-technology at the Eurasia Group consultancy. “And in the middle of the trade dispute and the actions against Huawei, it’s even more important for China to show that they are continuing to move forward despite all these challenges,” he added….

China’s central government wants 5G coverage extended to cover all of Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou by the end of the year. The country’s largest carrier, China Mobile, which has 900 million cellphone subscribers, says it will be able to offer 5G services in more than 50 cities this year….

Approximately 13,000 5G base stations have been installed in Beijing, the communications administration said this week.  About 10,000 are already operating.  China already has a total of more than 80,000 5G macro base stations, typically cellular towers with antennas and other hardware that beam wireless signals over wide areas, government officials said. They said China will end the year with about 130,000, while Bernstein Research estimates South Korea will be in second place with 75,000, followed by the U.S. with 10,000.  Piper Jaffray estimated that of the 600,000 5G base stations expected to be rolled out worldwide next year, half will be in China. [78]

This basically means that China had suddenly turned on the 5G switch, just less than two months before the COVID-19 outbreak, suddenly blanketing many cities with this 5G wireless radiation. And at the time of this initial writing, South Korea’s numbers of COVID-19 cases have also skyrocketed. As we can see from the above article, South Korea has the second highest number of 5G antennas with 75,000. That is a lot for a country its size. Is there a connection? I think there is with at the time (March 8th, 2020) also had the highest number of COVID-19 cases (7,134) and one of the highest number of death rates (50) outside of China.

Forty Cities Drinking 5G Service
In the online article, “These 40 Cities Will Drink 5G Service,” [91] published June 7th, 2019, it was revealed that it had been decided that 5G would be launched in 40 cities across China in 2019 by China Mobile and China Unicom (with no specific information from China Telecom yet at that time). Cities on this list included in Zhejiang Province were Hangzhou, Ningbo, and Wenzhou, not to mention places like Beijing, Shanghai, Wuhan, Guangzhou, Suzhou, and Shenzhen. The initial plan it seems, called the “7+33+n” 5G network deployment strategy, was to have full coverage in Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanjing, and Xiong’an, with hotspot coverage in the other 33 cities, and then customized 5G networks in so-called “n” cities, though this might have very well changed as other cities seemingly also wanted full coverage (note Wuhan’s installation of 10,000 5G antennas).

Top Most COVID-19-Hit Provinces After Wuhan: Zhejiang and Guangdong
Interestingly, at one point in this saga, the second most hit (with the COVID-19) provinces were Zhejiang and Guangdong Provinces, (though at the time of this initial writing, Zhejiang had already been taken over by Henan). [92] The provinces listed below, in Chinese, and in order of most cases, are (1) Hubei (湖北), (2) Guangdong (广东), (3) Henan (河南), (4) Zhejiang (浙江), and (5) Hunan (湖南).

It had been so bad in Zhejiang Province that Japan, on Feb. 12th, even extended its entry restrictions to virus-hit Zhejiang (at the time was third in number of COVID-19 cases).

It includes the cities of Hangzhou and Wenzhou, which have among the country's highest concentrations of COVID-19 cases. Hangzhou hosts the headquarters of Alibaba Group Holding, while Wenzhou is famed as a cradle of small business. [93]

On the map (Wikipedia) below [94], Zhejiang Province is the darker red province off to the right and Guangdong Province is the darker red one at the bottom. The darkest red province in the middle is Hubei with Wuhan in its center. Henan Province is above Hubei Province and Hunan Province is below it.

These cities (Hangzhou, Wenzhou, and Ningbo) have also been cities selected to trial the 5G in Zhejiang province. We can see from the picture below on the left from Ookla 5G Maps, which tracks 5G deployment around the world,[95] the number of telecoms offering 5G service in various cities in China. The middle map is a zoom-in on Zhejiang province. The numbers represent the number of telecoms servicing the city. In the city of Hangzhou, we can see that all three Chinese telecoms are providing 5G service in the city; whereas in Ningbo, only two are, and in Wenzhou, only one (China Mobile) is. (If you further click on the number, it will tell you which telecoms are operating.) And the picture on the right is a zoom-in of the COVID-19 Map from Expat Focus, in Zhejiang Province, where we can see that the cities with the most 5G antennas are also the ones with the highest cases of COVID-19.


                 Expat Focus Map [27]

The three cities in Zhejiang Province with the most cases have been Hangzhou (168 cases), Ningbo (156 cases), and Wenzhou (503 cases), which are also curiously the cities selected to trial the 5G. The city proper of Wenzhou itself (though when one includes the outer-lying prefectures the total comes 9 million), for example, with only 200,000 people, has an inordinately high number of people infected with COVID-19, and the city has been on lockdown. But as you can see from some of the articles selected below that there has been a major push in this city to implement and blanket cover their cities with 5G technology.  

In the following online article, “China Tower Built 8400 5G Stations in Zhejiang” [96] (Oct. 21st, 2019), it is revealed that 8400 5G base stations had recently been installed in Zhejiang Province, with 4775 (out of an order of 6154) installed in Hangzhou alone, and 3200 of these installed within 100 days (in just a little over three months).

China Tower Built 8400 5G Stations in Zhejiang
According to a person in charge of China Tower (Zhejiang), since this year, it has undertaken more than ten thousand 5G construction demands. At present, 8397 stations have been completed, more than 96% of which were built on the stock station sites. In Hangzhou, since this year, 6154 5G demands have been accepted and 4775 have been completed and delivered, of which 93% are directly met and transformed through stock station sites.
In the downtown of Hangzhou, after receiving the 5G construction demand of three telecom enterprises, China Tower (Zhejiang), with the support of the government, completed 3200 5G base stations in the West Lake scenic area, Olympic Sports Center and other scenes within 100 days, and cooperated with telecom enterprises to complete quick installation and debugging of equipment, based on existing telecom rooms, cabinets, power supporting facilities and 5G antenna added on stock station sites, street lamp poles, buildings, etc. [96] 
In another online article, published in Chinese, “China Tower installs 8,400 5G antennas in Zhejiang, 96% based on existing sites,” [中国铁塔在浙江建成84005G站址,96%基于既有站址], [97]  we can see China Tower blanketing Hangzhou with 5G antennas in a very short period of time.
In this article, it is stated that “Zhejiang is one of the earliest provinces in the country to start building 5G networks,” and that “China Tower Zhejiang Company … started the acceleration of 5G construction in the first year of 5G commercialization…. And further that, “more than 10,000 5G construction requirements have been undertaken since this year,” with “8397 sites … completed.” [97]
It becomes clear that the Zhejiang Province, home to the tech giant, Alibaba, is one of the provinces slated to become one of the first to introduce the 5G. In the following article, “Delta region to build world-class information communication hub,” [98] (Updated: 2019-11-01) it is stated that with the commercialization of 5G services on Oct. 31st,

[f]ifty cities were selected to become among the first to access commercial 5G services, including 10 cities in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) region, half of which are from Zhejiang province – Hangzhou, Ningbo, Wenzhou, Jiaxing, and Shaoxing. [98]

It is further stated that the three telecom companies plus China Tower would be investing in the region a total of 200 billion yuan (USD $28.4 billion) for the 5G infrastructure construction in order to “build it into a world-class information communication hub.”
According to a development plan for the region released in 2016, China Telecom, China Unicom, China Mobile and China Tower are planning to invest more than 200 billion yuan ($28.4 billion) in 5G infrastructure construction in the region by 2021 to help “build it into a world-class information communication hub” promoting the “region’s pilot use of 5G network and applications,” and making “it clear that the YRD region will be the first in China to conduct trial commercial use of 5G services,” while aiming to “realize the coverage of the 5G network throughout the province by 2025.” [98]
Coastal City of Wenzhou Worst Hit in Zhejiang Province

In the province of Zhejiang, the cities of Hangzhou, Ningbo, and Wenzhou, have the highest numbers of COVID-19 cases. These are also the main places where 5G has been installed so far in the province. Wenzhou, for a relatively small Chinese city, has the inordinately highest number — at present 503 — of cases in Zhejiang Province, and has been on lockdown [99] since Feb. 2nd when the number of cases there reached 304.

Wenzhou: Internet and 5G Hub
In the past year, there have been numerous conferences in this small city promoting 5G directly or indirectly. [100] [101] [102] For example, the Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Industry and Energy opened there in September of last year and the Sixth World Internet Conference opened there in October of last year. The Conference on the Internet of Things (IoT) for Industry and Energy exhibited the latest state-of-the-art IoT technologies and 5G applications for big data technologies and IoT platforms. The Sixth World Internet (three-day) Conference brought together over 1,500 attendees from over 70 countries and regions, including Nobel Prize winners, and executives from major tech companies like Qualcomm, Alibaba, and Huawei.

In an article titled, “Experience the construction of 5G base stations under high temperature,” published in Chinese (体验高温下5G基站建设) [103] on Aug. 26, 2019, it is stated that “Wenzhou is one of the first 5G pilot cities of the three major operators, and 5G network coverage is in full swing.”

In another article, “Wenzhou shows big ambition in IoT industry,” [104] (Sept. 10th, 2019), it is further stated:

"Wenzhou is building itself into a pilot city for China's smart city construction and 5G applications," Chen said, "Now, there are 13 cloud computing centers, over 500 5G base stations and more than 10,000 narrow-band IoT bases in the city." [104]

Finally, looking at yet another article published approximately six months later titled “The first case in Zhejiang! S1 line is the first to achieve full coverage of mobile 5G signals,” (Jan. 19th, 2020), (also published in Chinese, 浙江首例!S1线率先实现移动5G信号全覆盖) [105] which revels at the 5G signal penetration along the “Longwan Airport-Wenzhou South High Speed ​​Rail S1 line,” it becomes obvious that Wenzhou has also taken part in the 5G race to plaster its city with 5G electromagnetic waves.

5G and COVID-19 in Africa — and Central & South America

Expat Focus Map

We are already three months into this so-called COVID-19 pandemic, and both South America and Africa have, for the most part, remained unscathed, with 11 countries in Africa (at the time of this writing on March 24, 2020) still not reporting any COVID-19 cases. [106]

In fact, officials had been predicting that Africa would be a disaster, and they have been absolutely dumbfounded as to why it hasn’t been. In an article appearing on March 4, 2020, in the Atlanta Black Star titled, “Officials’ Confusion Over Lack of Coronavirus in Africa Arouses Skepticism on Social Media: ‘They Aren’t Happy Africa is Largely’ Coronavirus Free?”  [107] it is stated that

As the coronavirus sweeps the globe, experts are wondering why Africa is relatively unscathed by the outbreak.

At the beginning of the Covid-19 spread, experts were worried about how Africa would grapple with the disease.

“Our biggest concern continues to be the potential for Covid-19 to spread in countries with weaker health systems,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, leader of the World Health Organization, said in February.

However, the worry transformed into confusion since so far there have been nine confirmed diagnoses on a continent housing more than 1 billion people. [107]

What is perhaps even more puzzling for these people is the fact that the country in Africa with the most modern and advanced healthcare system, South Africa, [108] is seeing an exponentially higher number of cases of COVID-19 than its neighbors.


And on April 3, 2020:


Maybe this very well has to do with the fact that the only country in Africa to have been  implementing 5G, and still yet on a limited scale, for any length of time, has been South Africa, [109] with Nigeria is in the process of trialing it, [110] and some other African countries to starting trials and implementations this year. [111] Yet, for the majority of African countries, the reality of 5G has been estimated to be many years away.

By one estimate, just seven out of 46 countries in sub-Saharan Africa will have 5G technology by 2025. JOHANNESBURG—While the rest of the world races to deploy next-generation 5G wireless technology, Africa is lagging behind, mainly because of poor consumers' inability to pay for fast data services and devices. [112]

And what are we seeing in these countries with regards to coronavirus numbers (as of March 25th, 2020) over three months after the initial outbreak in Wuhan, (while we have 53,609 cases in the USA, one of the most advanced countries in the world)? As an example, I will list all the 41 African countries with less than 20 cases of the coronavirus, to give you an idea.[113] And Africa was supposed to be a disaster.

Central & South America
While the numbers of coronavirus cases in Central and South America are not quite as low as they are in Africa, they are still extremely lower than their counterparts in Northern Asia, Western Europe, and North America. At present, (as of March 25th, 2020), these are the numbers:

Central America: Panama (443), Mexico (367), Costa Rica (177), Honduras (30), Guatemala (21), El Salvador (5), Nicaragua (2), Belize (1).

South America: Brazil (2,247), Ecuador (1,082), Chile (922), Peru (416), Argentina (387), Columbia (378), Uruguay (189), Venezuela (84), Bolivia (29), Paraguay (27), French Guiana (23), Suriname (7), and Guyana (5).

Both Central and South America have been slow to implement 5G. This has to do with the fact that a good portion of the population still has not transitioned from 3G to 4G yet. [114] [115] If we first take a look at Central America, there are presently no countries implementing the 5G technologies, with the first to most likely do so being Panama and Mexico. [116] [117] In South America, a number of countries are getting ready for a 5G rollout having already conducted limited or full-fledged trials with the technology, with Uruguay being the first to actually launch 5G in not only South America, but all of Latin America, [118] [119] [120] [121] [122]  — although not without protests. [123] [124] However, Brazil is probably the country to apply the most trials of the technology, positioning itself for a rollout sometime this year in 2020. [125] [126] [127] [128] Ecuador is also engaging in trials, [129] [130] not to mention Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Columbia, [131] [132] [133] [134] with one trial occurring also in Bolivia. [135] The other South American countries, Venezuela, Paraguay, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana have yet to trial, let alone implement the technology, with many of these countries just getting going with 4G. And yet we see the countries with the highest number of cases in South America are also the countries that have either implemented the 5G technology or are engaged in full-fledged or not so limited trials.

Countries Not Implementing or Trialing 5G (or only trialing 5G on a very limited basis) Have Lesser Cases of COVID-19
It is pretty obvious if you take a good look at all these countries with either full-blown implementation or full-blown trials that we are seeing exponentially higher numbers of coronavirus cases in comparison with those countries yet to implement or trial these technologies, in spite of the latter have substantially weaker healthcare systems.

5G Trials and Wireless Networks and the Coronavirus on Cruise Ships
Another hotbed for outbreaks of COVID-19 have been cruise ships. Certainly, being in close quarters together with people infected with COVID-19 is going to contribute to its spread. However, could the amount of electromagnetic radiation onboard these ships also be contributing to its spread? Actually, the fact that there are indeed research papers addressing this topic tells us in fact that it has been an issue of concern. [136]

5G made its debut of being tested on cruise ships in September of 2017 when the Estonian telecom company Telia in conjunction with Ericsson and Intel Corporation trialed 5G wireless systems on Tallink’s cruise ships at the Port of Tallinn in Estonia. [137] [138] [139] [140] [141]

The “real life” 5G environment for Tallink was created at the Port of Tallinn to test and explore how the new mobile technology can provide higher data connection speeds and improved quality. During the test in September 2017, 5G technology was deployed for the whole ship while it was in harbor. The technology enabled Wi-Fi usage for 2,000 passengers and the ship’s own information and communications technology systems. This is a first example of many uses that 5G will provide access to in transport situations, as well as very broad gigabit wireless services delivered to consumers. [140]

In a Fierce Wireless article entitled, “Telia shows off 5G in Europe with Ericsson, Intel,” (Sept. 29, 2017), [141] the following is stated:

The companies are using millimeter wave spectrum but are not disclosing which frequencies are being tested, a spokesperson told FierceWirelessTech. The solution includes an Ericsson 5G base station consisting of 5G antenna, radio and baseband, in conjunction with the Intel 5G Mobile Trial Platform.

They equipped the cruise ship—where thousands of passengers are using Wi-Fi and generating enormous loads of data—with 5G to prove that 5G enables value in real life, according to Mattias Manni, network strategy and planning manager for 5G at Telia Eesti.

The “real life” 5G environment for the shipping company Tallink was created at the Port of Tallinn, Estonia, to test and explore how 5G technology can provide higher data connection speeds and improved quality. During the test, which was conducted this month, pre-standard 5G enabled Wi-Fi usage for 2,000 passengers and the ship’s own information and communications technology systems. [141]

While 5G technology on cruise ships is still on its way to being implemented, [142] [143] [144] one thing for certain is that at present our modern cruise ships are indeed equipped with highly advanced wireless systems including cellular, WIFI, and IoT — making the ships a hotbed of electromagnetic radiation. For example, Carnival has been since 2017 equipping its cruise ships with an advanced wireless system, the Ocean Medallion, which not only allows it to keep track of all its passengers, but also allows for seamless wireless connectivity.

It enables the cruise ship operator to stay engaged with its guests anywhere they are inside a 17-deck “love boat.” I visited one of Carnival’s ships, the Royal Princess, recently when it was docked in San Francisco and got a VIP tour of the ship. It was a magical experience that foretells the way that the internet of things ought to work, once we all have access to it.

The Royal Princess is one of three Carnival cruise ships that have been outfitted with more than 7,000 sensors, 4,000 interactive digital portals, and a couple of datacenters. Those devices are connected with thousands of guest smartphones and Medallion wearables. And they are synchronized through multi-constellation satellites to the cloud. Cruise ships previously were self-contained as far as computing went, but now they are backed up on the cloud. John Padgett, chief experience and innovation officer at Carnival, said a ship can now be run from data in the cloud if necessary. [145]

Mild Symptoms Outside China and Other 5G Zones
So far it seems that, for the majority, the symptoms of patients outside of China, and outside these other places with all their 5G technology, for the most part, have seemingly been relatively mild, as one would most likely see with a regular cold or flu virus, and with many of those infected not showing any symptoms at all.

It is stated by Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, (Head of the WHO's Health Emergencies Program), in the continuously updated Al Jazeera article, “What happens if you catch the new corona virus?” [20] that “some patients do not show any symptoms,” and that

"You have mild cases, which look like the common cold, which have some respiratory symptoms, sore throat, runny nose, fever, all the way through pneumonia. And there can be varying levels of severity of pneumonia all the way through multi-organ failure and death," she told reporters in Geneva last week.

However, in most cases, symptoms have remained mild.

"We've seen some data on about 17,000 cases and overall 82 percent of those are mild, 15 percent of those are severe and 3 percent of those are classified as critical," said Van Kerkhove. [20]

Moreover, in numerous YouTube videos [147] [148] [149] [150] [151] we are seeing interviews with patients that have been seemingly showing only mild symptoms. One example is that of Rebecca Frazier, interviewed numerous times on numerous news programs, after being admitted to a Tokyo Hospital after being found to be infected with the COVID-19 on the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship. In one of the interviews, conducted by the New Zealand news program on the Radio New Zealand (RNZ) network titled I never really felt unwell,” [147] for example, the interviewer states the following and then goes onto interview Ms. Frazier:

“Incapacitated, needing help to breath, and surrounded by doctors in hazmat suits, is perhaps the go-to image of those infected with COVID-19. Not so for Rebecca Frazier, who has Covid-19 as it is now known. Curiously, she looks just fine. She’s in isolation in a Tokyo hospital after testing positive for the virus, while onboard the Diamond Princess Cruise Ship that is now docked in Yokohama, in lockdown for 14 days…. Rebecca says she’s shocked that she has tested positive for the deadly virus given how fit and well she feels.

“I just can’t believe it. Just can’t believe this is happening to you. Umm. I… You know, I am not one to freak out….”

“Did you feel unwell? Do you feel unwell?”

No. I never really felt unwell. I had a little bit of a cough when they told me, and when I got here, I had a little bit of a fever, but all of that has normalized and I have no symptoms…. [147]

In another YouTube video, [151] this one from a Chinese TV network, is a report by a nurse in Wuhan, who contracted the virus, and decided to stay home to recover (which might very well have been what saved her life).

In the video, we see her going about her daily life as if only seemingly bothered by what would only be a normal cold virus.

In a BBC report [152]  about Steve Walsh, labeled a “Super Spreader,” a man who was apparently infected by COVID-19 in Singapore and apparently spread it to numerous others at a ski resort in France, we hear one of his neighbors state that

“His wife told me on the phone that really he is not that ill and she thinks it is a complete basically a load of rubbish umm and it's no worse than flu. Probably not as bad." (2:20)

So… why is it that, while these people are seemingly only manifesting mild symptoms, many people in China, (and especially in the city of Wuhan and some other provinces), South Korea, Italy, Iran, and now seemingly the USA, are having such a difficult time with many unfortunately succumbing to the virus, and (for want of a better expression) “dropping like flies”?

EMFs, the Immune System, and Relevance to the COVID-19 Outbreak

EMFs Affect the Immune System
Wireless radiation from 1G to 5G have all emitted modulated “Radiofrequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (EMFs)” and there are literally thousands of studies showing biological effects from exposures to man-made electromagnetic waves, and out of these, hundreds showing biological effects on the immune system.

Professor Joel Moskowitz of the University of California, Berkeley, compiled a list of EMF and immune related studies here, [153] and also brought attention on his blog [154] to a compilation of research in a review paper “published in a peer-reviewed journal in 2013 by Dr. Stanislaw Szmigielski” titled “Reaction of the immune system to low-level RF/MW exposures,” [155] where he states the following:

The incomplete knowledge of RF/MW-related cancer risks has initiated searches for biological indicators sensitive enough to measure the "weak biological influence" of RF/MWs. One of the main candidates is the immune system, which is able to react in a measurable way to discrete environmental stimuli.

In this review, the impacts of weak RF/MW fields, including cell phone radiation, on various immune functions, both in vitro [cell culture studies] and in vivo [live animal studies], are discussed. The bulk of available evidence clearly indicates that various shifts in the number and/or activity of immunocompetent cells [cells that can develop an immune response] are possible, however the results are inconsistent. For example, a number of lymphocyte [small white blood cells especially found in the lymphatic system] functions have been found to be enhanced and weakened within single experiments based on exposure to similar intensities of MW radiation.

Certain premises exist which indicate that, in general, short-term exposure to weak MW radiation may temporarily stimulate certain humoral* or cellular immune functions, while prolonged irradiation inhibits the same functions.

is very much in line with what Dr. Robert O. Becker wrote in 1985 with regards to how the immune system is weakened by manmade electromagnetic fields via the induction of “subliminal stress”:

Initially, the stress activates the hormonal and/or immune systems to a higher than normal level, enabling the animal to escape danger and combat disease. If the stress continues, hormone levels and immune reactivity gradually decline to normal. If you stop your experiment at this point, you're apparently justified in saying, "The animal has adapted; the stress is doing no harm." Nevertheless, if the stressful conditions persist, hormone and immune levels decline further, well below normal. In medical terms, stress decompensation has set in, and now the animal is now more susceptible to other stressors, including malignant growth and infectious diseases.

One aspect of the syndrome was very puzzling. When undergoing these hormonal changes, an animal would normally be aware that its body was under attack, yet, as far as we could tell, the rabbits were not. They showed no outward signs of fear, agitation, or illness. Most humans certainly wouldn't be able to detect a 100-gauss magnetic field, at least not consciously. Only several years after Friedman's work did anyone find out how this is happening.

In 1976 a group under J. J. Noval at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory at Pensacola, Florida, found the slow response in rats from very weak electric fields, as low as five thousandths of a volt per centimeter. They discovered that when such fields vibrated in the ELF range, the increased levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brainstem, apparently in a way that activated a distress signal subliminally, without the animal's becoming aware of it. The scariest part was that the fields Noval used were well within the background levels of a typical office, with its overhead lighting, typewriters, computers, and other equipment. Workers in such an environment are exposed to electric fields between a hundredth and a tenth of a volt per centimeter and magnetic fields between a hundredth and a tenth of a gauss. (pp. 277-278) [2]

In a paper [156] (written by myself along with Prof. Olle Johansson of the Karolinska Institute) — which I believe offers the most solid hypothesis to date on one of the main mechanisms by which EMFs do in fact disable the immune system —a number of these related to immune system effects can be found listed in the citations.

Johansson (2012) further details, in Section 8 of the BioInitiative, “Evidence for EMF Effects on the Immune System,” [157] numerous studies demonstrating those effects, especially with regards to how radiofrequency EMFs alter the immune system.

Suppression of the Immune System
To give one example of relevance here, research by Kolomytseva, et al. (2002) described in the paper, “Suppression of nonspecific resistance of the body under the effect of extremely high frequency electromagnetic radiation of low intensity,” [158] found that with

whole-body exposure of healthy mice to low-intensity extremely-high-frequency electromagnetic radiation (EHF EMR, 42.0 GHz, 0.15 mW/cm2, 20 min daily)… phagocytic activity of peripheral blood neutrophils was suppressed by about 50% (p < 0.01 as compared with the sham-exposed control) in 2-3 h after the single exposure to EHF EMR…

and that this

… effect persisted for 1 day after the exposure, and then the phagocytic activity of neutrophils returned to the norm within 3 days.

And furthermore,

a significant modification of the leukocyte blood profile in mice exposed to EHF EMR for 5 days was observed after the cessation of exposures: the number of leukocytes increased by 44% (p < 0.05 as compared with sham-exposed animals), mostly due to an increase in the lymphocyte content.

They concluded that,

the results indicated that the whole-body exposure of healthy mice to low-intensity EHF EMR has a profound effect on the indices of nonspecific immunity. [158]

Lymphocytes Damaged
Back in 1998, a biologist named Roger Coghill conducted an experiment where he “took white blood cells, known as lymphocytes, from a donor,” [159] and kept them alive via the use of nutrients while exposing them to either cell phone radiation or the natural electromagnetic field of the human body. He discovered that of the immune cells exposed to cell phone radiation, only 13% remained undamaged and able to function properly; whereas, of cells exposed only to body’s natural electromagnetic field, 70% remained undamaged and able to function properly. Naturally, while his research did provide insight, he was attacked and criticized by the wireless industry for being “unscientific.”

Significant Decreases in Immunoglobulin Levels
Other very important research relevant to the COVID-19 crisis is a study titled “Effect of electromagnetic waves from mobile phone on immune status of male rats: possible protective role of vitamin D” (2017) [160] by El-Gohary and Said where they state

After 30 days of exposure time, 1 h/day EMF exposure resulted in significant decrease in immunoglobulin levels (IgA, IgE, IgM, and IgG); total leukocyte, lymphocyte, eosinophil and basophil counts; and a significant increase in neutrophil and monocyte counts. These changes were more increased in the group exposed to 2 h/day EMF. Vitamin D supplementation in EMF-exposed rats reversed these results when compared with EMF-exposed groups. In contrast, 7, 14, and 21 days of EMF exposure produced nonsignificant differences in these parameters among all experimental groups. We concluded that exposure to mobile phone radiation compromises the immune system of rats, and vitamin D appears to have a protective effect. [160]

And while all this is very interesting, the significant decrease in IgA at one hour a day, with the decrease being more pronounced at two hours a day, after a 30-day exposure period is of particular significance here because immunoglobulin A (IgA) is the antibody that plays a critical role in the immune function of mucous membranes, [161] especially in relation to the health of and the fighting of infection in our lungs, and having an IgA deficiency can lead to pneumonia [162] — which is the primary cause of death with COVID-19 — and other infections. And as Pall (2020) [163] notes in a newer version of a previously published paper, “Massive Predicted Effects of 5G,”
The predominant cause of death from this coronavirus is pneumonia. Pneumonia is greatly exacerbated by each of those five downstream effects of VGCC activation, excessive intracellular calcium, oxidative stress, NF-kappaB elevation, inflammation and apoptosis. The first of the citations listed below shows that calcium channel blockers, the same type of drugs that block EMF effects, are useful in the treatment of pneumonia. This predicts that EMFs, acting via VGCC activation, will produce increasingly severe pneumonia and therefore 5G radiation as well as other types of EMFs may well increase pneumonia deaths.

These all argue that 5G radiation is likely to greatly exacerbate the spread of the coronavirus and to greatly increase the lethality of the infections produced by it. The good news is that it is likely that those of us that live in areas with no 5G radiation and who avoid other EMFs wherever possible will probably escape much of the impacts of this prospective global pandemic.

It is highly probable that one of the best things Wuhan can do to control the epidemic in the city is to turn off the 4G/5G system. [163]

EMFs and Cytokines
In the previously mentioned Aljazeera article, [20] it is stated that a study published in the medical journal, The Lancet, on January 24th, found

what it called a "cytokine storm" in infected patients who were severely ill. The condition is a severe immune reaction in which the body produces immune cells and proteins that can destroy other organs. [20]

Hence, it should be noted here that there are, in fact, numerous research studies showing an EMF effect on cytokines: A PubMed search, for example, produced 119 search results. [164]

In one of these studies, entitled “Effect of long-term occupational exposure to extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields on proinflammatory cytokine and hematological parameters,” (Aug. 2019) it was concluded that

Long-term exposure to ELF-EMFs probably affects immune responses, by stimulating the production of proinflammatory cytokines, and increasing some hematological parameters. [165]

Suffice it to say, EMFs do have an impact on the immune system, and in ways demonstrated here, impacts that could very well explain some of the phenomena we are seeing with COVID-19.

EMFs and Oxygen Transport
With the 5G rollout, numerous symptoms have been documented, [7-14] one of which has been “breathlessness,” [166] and this also has been a major factor with COVID-19, [167] [168] the inability to breath. Even the pro-5G technology blog, 5G Technology World, acknowledges these symptoms:

According to a study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO), 5G cell tower microwave radiation exposure has been linked to an array of symptoms from head, heart, and muscle issues; sleep complications like insomnia and fatigue; and breathing difficulties, to high-pitched ringing in ears, memory impairment, dizziness, and erratic mood swings. This is in addition to previous studies linking microwave radiation exposure to illnesses like cancer, heart disease, neurological dysfunction, even immune system suppression and cataracts. [166]

EMFs have been shown in numerous studies to cause red blood cells to form what is known as the rouleaux formation, where the red blood cells become depolarized and then clump together sometimes like magnets. This alters the ability of the red blood cells to transport oxygen to and carbon dioxide away from the cells leading to symptoms of breathlessness and hypoxia (i.e. the inability to breathe).

In one study, conducted by the Westin-Price Foundation, [169] titled “Does Short-term Exposure to Cell Phone Radiation Affect the Blood?” (Jan. 15, 2015), blood samples were taken from 10 subjects (“two males and eight females ranging from twenty-seven to seventy-five years of age, with a mean age of 53.3 years”) (1) before smartphone exposure (baseline condition), (2) after exposure to a smartphone in receiving mode, placed in a backpack the subject wore for 45 minutes (carrying condition), and (3) after talking on, texting, and using the phone for a total of 45 minutes (active-use condition).

75-Year-Old Female Subject

Baseline Condition                                 Carrying Condition                   

Active-Use Condition

55-Year-Old Male Subject

Baseline Condition                                Carrying Condition                    

Active-Use Condition

According to the conclusions and discussion of the study,
Results show substantial changes in the blood from short-term cell phone radiation exposure in nine out of ten human subjects. RBC aggregation and stickiness were mainly observed following 45 minutes of exposure to a smart phone in receiving mode worn by subjects in a backpack. By contrast, RBC morphological (shape) changes including the formation of echinocytes (spiky cells) were dominant after subjects actively used the phone for an additional 45 minutes. It appears that RBC stickiness with clumping is the first stage of the cell phone radiation effect. Subsequently, the RBC aggregates tend to break apart, and then cell shape changes occur, in which echinocytes and other misshapen cells are observed. [169]

Dr. Magda Havas, Ph.D., Professor Emerita at Trent University, has a YouTube video entitled “Live Blood Analysis and Electrosmog” explaining the process. [170]

Furthermore, in a peer-reviewed scientific paper appearing Reviews on Environmental Health titled “Radiation from wireless technology affects the blood, the heart, and the autonomic nervous system,” [171] (2013) Dr. Havas writes in the section titled “Electrosmog affects the blood” that

Changes in the size, shape, and clumping of these erythrocytes can indicate impaired health. Figure 4 shows live blood (blood without any chemicals added to it) in an electromagnetically clean environment (A) and the blood from the same person spoke on a cordless phone for 10 min (B) and after using a wired computer for 70 min (C). The erythrocytes are sticking together and resemble a stack of coins. This is known as Rouleau formation and indicates unhealthy blood….

In the first of a series of videos, appearing on YouTube, March 31, 2020, Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell — an emergency medicine physician in Brooklyn, New York — is pleading for help in understanding the strange phenomena he is seeing:

This is Dr. Cameron Kyle-Sidell, ER and critical-care doctor from New York City. Nine days ago, I opened an intensive-care unit to care for the sickest COVID-positive patients in the City. In these nine days, I have seen things I have never seen before. In treating these patients, I have witnessed medical phenomenon that just don’t make sense in the context of treating a disease that is supposed to be a viral pneumonia. Nine days ago, I presumed I was opening an intensive-care unit to treat patients with a virus-causing A pneumonia that was ravaging lungs across the world starting out as something mild: a cough, a sore throat, and progressively increasing in severity until ultimately ending in something called acute respiratory distress syndrome or ARDS. This is the paradigm that every hospital in the country is working under. This is the disease, ARDS, that every hospital is preparing to treat. And this is the disease, ARDS, for which in the next two to six weeks, one hundred thousand Americans might be put on a ventilator. And yet, everything I have seen in the last nine days, all the things that just don’t make sense, the patients I am seeing in front of me, the lungs I am trying to improve, have led me to believe that COVID-19 is not this disease. And that we are operating under a medical paradigm that is untrue. In short, I believe we are treating the wrong disease, and I fear that this misguided treatment will lead to a tremendous amount of harm, to a great number of people in a very short time. As New York City seems to be about ten days ahead of the country, I feel compelled to get this information out. COVID-19 lung disease, as far as I can see, is not a pneumonia, and should not be treated as one. Rather it appears as if some kind of viral, it appears as some kind of viral-induced disease most resembling high-altitude sickness. It is as if tens of thousands of my fellow New Yorkers are on a plane at 30,000 feet and the cabin pressure is slowly being let out. These patients are slowly being starved of oxygen. I have seen patients dependent on oxygen, take off their oxygen and quickly progress to a state of anxiety and emotional distress and eventually get blue in the face and while they look like patients absolutely on the brink of death, they do not look like patients dying of pneumonia. I have never been a mountain climber and I do not know the conditions at base camp below the highest peaks in the world. But I suspect the patients I am seeing in front of me, look most like as if a person was dropped off on the top of Mt. Everest without time to acclimate. I don’t know the final answer to this disease, but I am quite sure that a ventilator is not it. That is not to say that we don’t need ventilators. We absolutely need them. They are the only way at this time that we are able to give a little more oxygen to patients who need it. But when we treat people with ARDS, we typically use ventilators to treat what is called respiratory failure. That is we use the ventilator to do the work the patients muscles no longer do because they are too tire to do it. These patients’ muscles work fine. I fear that if we are using a false paradigm to treat a new disease; that the method that we program the ventilator one based on a notion of respiratory failure as opposed to oxygen failure, that this method, and there are a great number of methods we can use with the ventilator, but this method being widely adopted at this very moment in every hospital in the country which aims to increase pressure on the lungs in order to open them up is actually doing more harm than good. And that the pressure we are providing, that we are providing to lungs, we may be providing to lungs that cannot stand it, cannot take it. And that the air the… that we are seeing, that the whole world is seeing, may be nothing more than injury caused by the ventilator. Now, I don’t know the final answer to this disease. I do sense that we will have to use ventilators. We’ll have to use a great many number of ventilators. And we need a great many number of ventilators, but I sense that we can use them in a much safer way. In a much safer method….

It seems to me that the seriousness of cases we are seeing in New York City is similar to the seriousness of the cases we saw with people in Wuhan, with people being unable to breath. And I suspect that the reason for this is that New York City is also blanketed with 5G antennas and 5G radiation is disabling the red blood cells' ability to transport oxygen much more severely than we saw with the previous generations of wireless technologies.

Could the 5G Be Making the COVID-19 More Virulent?
Smaller Life Forms Seemingly More Sensitive to Wireless
When we look at the following video, it becomes apparent that smaller life forms like insects are indeed more sensitive to this wireless radiation, with this clear example coming only from radar:

This picture shows some aphids on the leaf of an orange tree. Shortly after radar was installed at a nearby airport a number of years ago, I noticed that every few seconds, all the aphids would tense up in unison and do sort of a little dance, as you see in the picture. Upon further investigation, I found that the interval of time in between the activity of each dance, coincided exactly with the rotation of the radar rotor device at the airport, which was a distance of approximately fourteen miles. [172]

In the following video, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt talks about an experiment where mold exposed to EMFs proliferated:

Now I am going to make the link to the electromagnetic fields. An acquaintant physician in Switzerland who is a main mold researcher in Europe made a beautiful experiment. He grew mold cultures under a Faraday cage simply like a silver coat, it looks like a mosquito net, that is made out of silver-coated cloth. [It had] been draped over the mold culture. And he measured how much mycotoxins, how much toxins, are these molds producing on a daily basis. Very easy to do. Then he lifted the mosquito net and exposed the mold culture to the ambient electromagnetic radiation in his laboratory, which was caused by the lights that were on, by the computer in the corner, and especially, and he found out later, the ambient cell phone radiation, from the nearby cell phone tower that was broadcasting cell phone radiation. He found out that the production of biotoxins in this culture went up more than 600 times. Not only that the mold suddenly put out significantly more mycotoxins to protect themselves, but also much more virulent, much more vicious, more poisonous mycotoxins. And I took that experiment as was for me a big lightbulb went on….[173]

A Mechanism of Action: EMFs, VGCCs, C2+, and Viruses — A Recipe for a Disaster
So what if the same kind of thing is happening with the 5G radiation and the COVID-19?
Pall’s paper, “Electromagnetic fields act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels to produce beneficial or adverse effects” [174]  (2013) — which reviews the research literature on EMFs and voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs) — clearly shows that EMFs do in fact open VGCCs, allowing calcium (C2+) to pour into the cell. And a recent review paper by Chen, Cao & Zhong, “Host Calcium Channels and Pumps in Viral Infections,” [175] (Dec. 2019) clearly shows that viruses need calcium to proliferate:

Ca 2+is essential for virus entry, viral gene replication, virion maturation, and release. The alteration of host cells Ca 2+ homeostasis is one of the strategies that viruses use to modulate host cells signal transduction mechanisms in their favor. Host calcium-permeable channels and pumps (including voltage-gated calcium channels, store-operated channels, receptor-operated channels, transient receptor potential ion channels, and Ca 2+ -ATPase) mediate Ca 2+ across the plasma membrane or subcellular organelles, modulating intracellular free Ca 2+ . Therefore, these Ca 2+ channels or pumps present important aspects of viral pathogenesis and virus–host interaction. It has been reported that viruses hijack host calcium channels or pumps, disturbing the cellular homeostatic balance of Ca 2+ . Such a disturbance benefits virus lifecycles while inducing host cells’ morbidity. Evidence has emerged that pharmacologically targeting the calcium channel or calcium release from the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) can obstruct virus lifecycles. Impeding virus-induced abnormal intracellular Ca2+ homeostasis is becoming a useful strategy in the development of potent antiviral drugs. In this present review, the recent identified cellular calcium channels and pumps as targets for virus attack are emphasized.   [175]

So here we have our main mechanism of action: EMFs trigger the opening of VGCCs allowing the entry of calcium into the cell. The coronavirus, like any other virus, needs calcium to proliferate, plain and simple. It sounds to me like a recipe for a disaster. Hence, could the 5G frequencies very well be turning a normally relatively benign virus into a monster? That very well may be what is exactly happening here if we are willing to keep an open mind and consider all the evidence and facts being presented here.

Pall (2020) further states in “Massive Predicted Effects of 5G,” the following:

The question that is being raised here is not whether 5G is responsible for the virus, but rather whether 5G radiation, acting via VGCC activation may be exacerbating the viral replication or the spread or lethality of the disease. [163]

He further backtracks on the history of 5G in Wuhan to give us some perspective.

Let’s backtrack and look at the recent history of 5G in Wuhan in order to get some perspective on those questions. An Asia Times article, dated Feb.12, 2019 (https://www.asiatimes.com/2019/02/article/china-to-launch-first-5g-smart-highway) stated that there were 31 different 5G base stations (that is antennae) in Wuhan at the end of 2018. There were plans developed later such that approximately 10,000 5G antennae would be in place at the end of 2019, with most of those being on 5G LED smart street lamps. The first such smart street lamp was put in place on May 14, 2019 (www.china.org.cn/china/2019-05/14/content_74783676.htm), but large numbers only started being put in place in October, 2019, such that there was a furious pace of such placement in the last 2 ½ months of 2019. These findings show that the rapid pace of the coronavirus epidemic developed at least roughly as the number of 5G antennae became extraordinarily high. So we have this finding that China’s 1st 5G smart city and smart highway is the epicenter of this epidemic and this finding that the epidemic only became rapidly more severe as the numbers of 5G antennae skyrocketed. [163]

He then looks at a number of studies which show evidence of an exacerbation of viral replication:

Are these findings coincidental or does 5G have some causal role in exacerbating the coronavirus epidemic? In order to answer that question, we need to determine whether the downstream effects of VGCC activation exacerbate the viral replication, the effects of viral infection, especially those that have roles in the spread of the virus and also the mechanism by which this coronavirus causes death. Accordingly, the replication of the viral RNA is stimulated by oxidative stress: J Mol Biol. 2008 Nov 28;383(5):1081-96. Variable oligomerization modes in coronavirus non-structural protein 9. Ponnusamy R, Moll R, Weimar T, Mesters JR, Hilgenfeld R.

Other aspects of viral replication including those involved in the spread of the virus are stimulated by increased intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i, oxidative stress, NF-kappaB elevation, inflammation and apoptosis, each of which are increased following EMF exposure. The first citation below shows an important role of VGCC activation in stimulating coronavirus infection.

5G Is Much More Powerful and Dangerous Than Its Predecessors
The 5G rollout — either the trialing stage or implementation stage — has already started in most major developed countries of the world, with majority of the rest seemingly preparing for its debut. The European Commission has asked EU member countries to start trialing 5G in at least one city making it 5G ready by 2020 under its “5G Action Plan for a Digital Single Market.” While Italy and other countries had embraced the idea, Belgium was initially reluctant — though seems to be now toeing the line — due to the higher radiation levels that the 5G would bring, which was way above what its radiation standards permitted. Switzerland started with both trials and implementation placing 2000 5G towers, and there was talk about a halt to further rollout, due to health effects, but seems to now be going ahead with the rollout. Other countries seemingly just lowered their standards probably because they could not resist the next best thing to Ben & Jerry’s™ Chunky Monkey Ice Cream™. And the USA and China have apparently been in a 5G race to blanket their countries in this 5G radiation (and most likely inadvertently feeding the COVID-19), with the USA now seemingly winning on both those fronts.

5G Frequencies
5G has been divided into low, mid, and high bandwidths. The low-to-mid-bandwidth frequencies “are contiguous and range from 600 MHz to 6 GHz,” [176] and have been used for 1G-4G for the past forty years. On the other hand, the higher-frequency millimeter wave bandwidths are new frequencies starting at approximately 24 GHz (in the US anyway), and have not been used for commercial cell phone service in in the USA until recently with the advent of these commercial 5G services.

Chinese 5G Frequencies
In China, the initial focus has been on the mid-bandwidth:

China Mobile, the country’s largest operator, has been approved to use spectrum in the 2.515 GHz to 2.675 GHz and the 4.8 GHz to 4.9 GHz ranges for its nationwide 5G trials. The 2.5 GHz spectrum will include frequencies to be re-farmed from China Mobile’s existing TD-LTE spectrum.
China Telecom was allowed to use the 3.4 GHz to 3.5 GHz frequency range to carry out 5G trials in mainland China. Under the agreement with the Chinese government, China Telecom will return its 2.635 GHz to 2.655 GHz spectrum over the same timeframe.
China Unicom said it has been approved to use the 3.5 GHz to 3.6 GHz frequency band for a nationwide 5G trial rollout until June 2020. The telco said that it will gradually cease to use the frequency in the 2.555 GHz to 2.575 GHz range that it had been using for 5G trials and progressively return it to the MIIT.
On the millimeter wave front, government regulators have identified candidate bands– 24.75–27.5 GHz and 37– 42.5 GHz, although allocation plans haven’t been crystalized. [177]
Hence, for the most part, at present, most 5G is now in the low to mid bandwidth range, with limited high millimeter wave coverage, though that will probably change as the technology develops and is implemented. Also, 5G technology is being implemented alongside with and piggybacking on already-in-place 4G technology. The 5G technology brings with it both larger macro-base stations and smaller micro-base stations installed between the larger macro-base stations.

Higher RF (Radiofrequency) Levels Being Measured
And because these micro-base stations are often closer to people’s homes in residential areas, according to Building Biology Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist (EMRS), Oram Miller,

we are now measuring higher RF levels in client's homes, especially in second story bedrooms, up to tens to hundreds of thousands of microWatts/meter squared (uW/m2) from these new antennas, [176]


the building biology profession and EMF experts around the world say 10 micro-Watts per meter squared or less is safe for sleeping areas (actually, 0.1 uW/m2 is our “No Anomaly” level for sleeping areas). [176]

Furthermore, as we have gone up the spectrum from 1G to 5G, with each new generation there has been increased modulation, and increased modulation means increased biological effects and biological harm for all life on this planet. 5G is no exception. Oram Miller goes onto further explain

All of these advanced technologies push more cell signals into the same airspace at faster speeds with far more modulation than current 4G cell technologies. [176]


This modulation of cell signals transmitted in the low and mid bands from new 5G and 4G LTE-Advanced small cell radios and antennas popping up everywhere probably accounts for the majority of people living near these antennas who report the onset of health symptoms not experienced previously. [176]

Massive Deleterious Effects Predicted for All Life Forms
Pall (2018) has warned that the rollout of 5G will have massive deleterious effects on the world’s population, not to mention all life forms. He believes that 5G will be much more dangerous for the following reasons:

1.     The extraordinary high numbers of antennae that are planned.
2.     The very high energy outputs which will be used to ensure penetration.
3.     The extraordinary high pulsation levels.
4.     The apparent high-level interactions of the 5G frequency on charged groups presumably including the voltage sensor charged groups. [178]

In an earlier version of his paper of his titled “Massive Predicted Effects of 5G” (Dec. 17, 2019), [179] Pall states that “given the high pulsation level for 5G radiation, even short exposures may well produce severe biological effects,” not to mention the power densities of up to 30 times higher than previous systems of 1G to 4G and with penetration being enhanced even further via the magnetic component. He is predicting that with the full-fledged turning on of 5G (versus just its trial phase, where there is little communication yet happening with the 5G), that we will be seeing (1) decreased human reproduction, (2) lowered collective brain function, (3) very early-onset Alzheimer’s, (4) increased autism and ADHD, (5) deterioration of the human gene pool, and (6) massive increases in cardiac arrests.

Following the rollout of 5G, he has tracked numerous signs of its biological effects. For example, he has outlined increases in neuropsychiatric effects, cardiac effects, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity, taken from Swiss online articles, [180] [181] as what we are already starting to see with the advent of this technology:
·      Increases in insomnia, tinnitus, headaches, inability to concentrate, and fatigue.
·      Increases in electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS).
·      Increases in cardiac arrhythmias.

He reports that while these effects had been reported before with occupational exposure studies and smart meter studies, “the effects appear to be much more severe following [the rollout of] 5G” with “even more severe apparent [yet to be published] 5G neuropsychiatric effects [appearing] in Southern California,” with their own recent massive rollout of 5G.
Furthermore, he states that “we have every reason to believe that any full-fledged 5G system, communicating with the ‘internet of things,’ will produce still vastly greater effects than any of these initial findings.” This might very well be what we are seeing in the city of Wenzhou City, Zhejiang Province, in China — which has already implemented this technology along with the 5G — with extraordinary high rates of the COVID-19, and who knows what other increases in health effects (e.g. increases in heart problems, blindness, electromagnetic hypersensitivity, etc.) there have been that have not been made public.
He goes onto further outline — in correlating the rollout of 5G with a number of phenomena, and explanatory research to back up what he is saying  — UK 5G ambulance service suicides, [182] cases of panic in cattle in the Netherlands, [183] and bizarre, aggressive behavior in cattle and sheep in Germany, [184] birth defects in Germany and France, [185] [186] and hundreds of birds dropping from the sky due to sudden cardiac arrest during three days of 5G testing in a park near Rotterdam, [187] and the list goes on and on to also include insect death and increases in fires in South Korea. [188] [189]

Pall (2016), in his paper, “Microwave frequency electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produce widespread neuropsychiatric effects including depression,” [190] includes the following neuropsychiatric symptoms with overexposure to wireless signals:

sleep disturbance/insomnia, headache, depression/depressive symptoms, fatigue/tiredness, dysesthesia, concentration/attention dysfunction, memory changes, dizziness, irritability, loss of appetite/body weight, restlessness/anxiety, nausea, skin burning/tingling/dermographism and EEG changes. [190]

Furthermore, in his online book, 5G: Great risk for EU, U.S. and International Health! Compelling Evidence for Eight Distinct Types of Great Harm Caused by Electromagnetic Field (EMF) Exposures and the Mechanism that Causes Them, [191] he further predicts increases in these neuropsychiatric effects, as well as, for example, increases in four different kinds of blindness, kidney dysfunction, miscarriages, birth defects, and autism.

I am very concerned that 5G may produce effects like those we already see produced from lower frequency EMFs but are much more severe. I am also concerned that we will also see responses that are qualitatively different. Let me give you three possible examples of the latter type and one quantitative example. Each of the four types of blindness, have downstream effects of VGCC activation as causal factors: cataracts, detached retinas, glaucoma and macular degeneration [emphasis added]. The aqueous and vitreous humors in the eye may be an ideal environment for the regeneration of the electrical fields within the eye. We may, therefore have a gigantic epidemic of each of the four types of blindness [emphasis added]. Another concern focuses on kidney dysfunction [emphasis added], which was shown in Chapter 5 to be impacted by EMFs. The kidneys have much fluid, both blood and also what will become urine, which may allow efficient the regeneration of electrical fields. Such regeneration may be expected to impact both the glomerular filtration and also the reabsorption, both essential to kidney function. Does this mean that 5G will produce very large increases in kidney failure? The only way to find out is to do biological safety testing of genuine 5G radiation. Let me give you a third example. Fetuses and very young babies have much more water in their bodies than do 81 adults. Therefore, they may be a special risk for impacts of 5G, because of great increases in the regeneration of the electrical fields. Here one can think of all kinds of possibilities. Let me suggest two. We may have a gigantic (sorry about using that word again) epidemic of spontaneous abortion due the teratogenic effects. Another possibility is that instead of autism being one birth in 38, however horrendous that is, it could be one out of two, or even a majority of births [emphasis added]. I don’t know that these will happen, but these are the kinds of risks we are taking and there are many others one can think of. Putting in tens of millions of 5G antennae without a single biological test of safety has got to be about the stupidest idea anyone has had in the history of the world. [191] (2018, pp. 80-81)

Anecdotal Evidence Coming from China
On a personal level, as someone who had been living and working in the very high-tech city of Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province of China, I have also had the opportunity to see an increasing amount of anecdotal evidence coming out of that area with regards to health effects with the recent trialing and implementation of 5G there to support what Martin Pall is saying here — and as Blake Levitt has stated, “Eventually the adage that the ‘plural of anecdote is data’ will come to pass.” And all this has coincided with the trialing and implementation of the 5G technology in that area. For example, it is stated in the online article, “Major International 5g Trials and Pilots” [192] that “the most advanced countries in terms of 5G trials and pilot tests are the USA, China, Japan and South Korea,” and that

In October 2017, the Chinese government kicked off the 3rd phase of 5G technology research and development tests. This phase aims to get pre-commercial products ready for when the first version of 5G standard comes out in June 2019.
Time has accelerated significantly in 2018 and China Mobile brought forward its scheduled 5G launch by one year and finally plans to offer 5G services by year-end 2019 (pre-commercial launch in the course of 2019). [192]
Accordingly, China Mobile started large-scale trials in Hangzhou in the 3rd quarter of 2018 with China Unicom trialing it in labs with “application experiments and large-scale trials… scheduled” into 2019.
In Hangzhou, I have a former colleague, in her early 30s who started to suffer recently from kidney disfunction, another former colleague’s father couldn’t sleep and was having severe psychiatric episodes and was given anti-anxiety medication (benzodiazepine). Another colleague’s mother, who lives in the city of Wenzhou, where they have implemented both 5G and the IoT, and is about 50 years old, had suddenly gone blind in both eyes and has had multiple operations. And finally, I have an acquaintance, who shortly after her move to a smaller city in Zhejiang Province (where they have also implemented 5G), and having never experienced anything like this before, suddenly started experiencing breathlessness, not to mention both anxiety attacks and depression. She was referred to a psychiatrist and given anti-anxiety medication (benzodiazepine) and has taken off from work. Upon investigation, we discovered that both her residence and place of work are located in the city’s new 5G hotspots and that they had been trialing the 5G when she started to experience these neuropsychiatric effects. And here we have all these people experiencing adverse health effects, but neither they nor their doctors are connecting these symptoms (not to mention the dots) with the rollout of 5G — in other words, out of sight, out of mind. So… these are just a few examples from people I know, which I suspect is probably just the tip of the iceberg. And while correlation does not necessarily mean causation, when you have multiple instances of correlation combined with the evidence of biological causation, the argument then does indeed become that much more plausible.
Captured Agencies and the Hijacking of the Science
And you might ask yourself, “Why haven’t I heard about this problem?” or you might tell yourself that “Certainly the authorities have our best interests at heart when they make these kinds of decisions.” Well, in a recent book review [193] of the book Triumph of Doubt (by David Michaels, 2020), Kathleen Rest, Executive Director, Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), (February 14, 2020) outlines how deception is used to manufacture doubt and uncertainty in many industries’ public relations playbooks:

· Attack the science. There are lots of tools in this toolbox: commission new “scientific” studies to reanalyze existing data with methodologies biased toward predetermined results; review the literature and risk assessments to question the weight of the evidence; publish these reviews and re-analyses in selected scientific journals; shop for and hire so-called “independent” experts to question the science; provide tasty and contrarian soundbites for the media and public consumption; and more.

· Create and deploy front groups with innocuous-sounding names to undermine science, influence public opinion, and gain access to policy makers while maintaining the illusion of independence.

· Harass and intimidate independent scientists whose research demonstrates or suggests harm. Or alternatively, curry favor with academic institutions and scientists by providing some form of financial support while also varnishing their public interest image.

· Overwhelm regulatory agencies with comments on proposed regulations.

· Use their outsized money, power, and access to influence actions/inactions of elected policymakers and agency officials. (Oh, and there’s also that well-oiled revolving door. Just take a look at how many agency leaders and decision-makers in the Trump administration come straight from the very industries they are now supposed to regulate.) [193]

Another tactic that I have noticed is that these people seem to use is to get their plants on a discussion list to make some completely off-the-wall statements so that they can then get the media to cover this so as to try to make everyone involved look like a bunch of complete lunatics, which an unsuspecting public is quick to consume and believe. This is something seemingly happening right now with this issue.

Certainly, how Western governments and corporations manipulate public opinion is different than how it might be done in China, since in the latter case, there is strict government control (e.g. Internet firewall) over what is permitted and not permitted to be accessed via the Internet, etc. Hence, they may not really have had to use the above playbook and this may very well be the reason they have been able to move so quickly to implement this technology in their country. But at what cost?
"Everything must be taken into account. If the fact will not fit the theory — let the theory go.... Real evidence is usually vague and unsatisfactory. It has to be examined — sifted."
 — Agatha Christie
As Agatha Christie says, “Everything must be taken into account.” Ignoring — especially willfully ignoring — any very possible causal factors — especially 5G electromagnetic fields in this case — in my humble opinion, is just not good science, if you can call that science at all. It is like not knowing why your car won’t start, ignoring the fact that there is no gas in it, and taking the engine completely apart piece by piece until you find the answer. The media reports — with clearly an aim to influence public opinion — circulating about this blindly stating that “5G Has Nothing to Do with the Coronavirus,” is just bad reporting, if not just outright “fake news.”

According to Pall,

The failure of the “safety guidelines” to predict biological effects and therefore safety means that these are not safety guidelines. Consequently, any claims of safety made by the multi-trillion euro-telecommunications industry based on these “safety guidelines” are simply fraudulent.

These failures of the “safety guidelines” must be considered in terms of the principle that is at the core of the scientific method. That principle is that when we have a scientific theory and we test predictions of that theory and the theory predictions are shown to be false, then we must throw the theory out. It follows that when we have eight highly repeated findings each of which show that the “safety guidelines” do not predict biological effects and do not, therefore, predict safety, it is a scientific requirement that the “safety guidelines” be thrown out. The failure of ICNIRP, the European Commission and various regulatory agencies to throw out the “safety guidelines” clearly shows that their actions are both unscientific and anti-scientific. [179]

“You are not entitled to your opinion. You are entitled to your informed opinion. No one is entitled to be ignorant.”Harlan Ellison

And anyone who would like some insight into how — what is perceived as the sacred cow of international health organizations — the W.H.O. has been unduly influenced by industry, they need look no further than Swedish oncologist and professor, Dr. Lennart Hardell’s paper, “World Health Organization, radiofrequency radiation and health - a hard nut to crack (Review).” [194]

In an article published on the Global Research website, (originally published by Microwave News), on Dec. 30th, 2019, titled “Open Season on Critics of 5G Cell Phone Technology: Media Censorship And Smear Campaigns against Prominent Scientists and Physicians,” [195] it is stated

Last May, the New York Times tried to take down David Carpenter, a public health physician and the country’s most prominent 5G critic. Veteran science writer William Broad painted Carpenter as a willing tool of a disinformation campaign promoted by RT America, a TV network which he described as “the cat’s paw of Russian president, Vladimir Putin.” The page-one story ran under the headline, “Your 5G Phone Won’t Hurt You But Russia Wants You To Think Otherwise.”

Two months later, on July 16, Broad was back for another hit on Carpenter. This time, he was given most of the front page of the Times’ Tuesday science section, to portray Carpenter as a fringe player working “hard to revise established science.”

Much of what Broad wrote was fiction. (See “A Fact-Free Hit on a 5G Critic.”)

Now Scientific American has ambushed Joel Moskowitz, one of the few other academics willing to state the obvious: No one knows whether 5G is safe. Moskowitz, based at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health, runs the widely read blog, Electromagnetic Radiation Safety. This new attack, written by David Grimes, an Irish physicist and science columnist, is vicious. Grimes labels Moskowitz a scaremonger —it’s in the headline: “Don’t Fall Prey to Scaremongering about 5G.”

But that’s just the beginning. Grimes goes on to portray Moskowitz as falling victim to “illusory truth,” accusing him of “alarming ignorance” and disseminating “groundless falsehoods.” Moskowitz’s outlook is “most certainly a fringe view” which pivots on “fatally flawed conjecture,” according to Grimes. He saves the worst for last, comparing Moskowitz and anti-5G activists to liars and anti-vaxxers:
“One need only look to the alarming renaissance of once-conquered diseases, driven by anti-vaccine disinformation online —the human cost when superstition and mendacity outpace science.”
But it’s Grimes who gets the science all wrong…. [195]
And this has been going on for a long time, as Robert O. Becker stated in 1985:

Grants were not given to look for low-level hazards, and scientists who did find such effects were cut down to size. Funds for their work were quickly shut off and vicious personal attacks undermined their reputation.... when non-thermal dangers were documented in America, military and industrial spokespeople simply refused to acknowledge them, lying to Congress and the public. Many scientists, who naturally wanted to continue working, went along with the charade. (p. 306) [2]

Unfortunately, too many people will regurgitate what they hear in the media, smugly acting like they “know” what they are talking about, when in fact they have done practically no research on the topic except for the “information” (or rather disinformation) the wireless industry has put out there for public consumption:

“I don’t feel anything.”
-       Yeah, but you don’t feel an x-ray either, and we all know x-rays are bad for us.

            “We get radiation from the Sun and the stars.”
-       Yes, but the man-made radiation we are now being exposed to is one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) to one quintillion (1,000,000,000,000,000,000) times the amount one would get from natural sources.

            “The jury is still out on that one.”
-       Well, actually it is not. There are thousands of studies, usually conducted by independent scientists (and not usually by industry-paid and -hired scientists), not to mention the US military, showing adverse biological effects.

            “You are engaging in ‘Confirmation Bias’.”
-       No, actually you are one who is engaging in confirmation bias. You are using the idea of confirmation bias (something you have heard in the media repeatedly) to confirm your own bias that I am a tinfoil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist Luddite (another thing you have heard repeatedly in the media) because you don’t believe that I know what I am talking about. You are actually just regurgitating something you heard or read in the media.

            “It’s not very scientific, is it?”
-       Actually, science is based on making observations, noticing correlations, perceiving cause-and-effect relationships, making logical inferences, and gathering evidence to support a hypothesis. The falling of an apple from an apple tree is what prompted Isaac Newton to come up with his law of gravity.

Doubt Is Their Product
With regards to an earlier book by David Michaels, titled Doubt Is Their Product, (2008) it is stated

"Doubt is our product," a cigarette executive once observed, "since it is the best means of competing with the 'body of fact' that exists in the minds of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy."

In this eye-opening exposé, David Michaels reveals how the tobacco industry's duplicitous tactics spawned a multimillion dollar industry that is dismantling public health safeguards. Product defense consultants, he argues, have increasingly skewed the scientific literature, manufactured and magnified scientific uncertainty, and influenced policy decisions to the advantage of polluters and the manufacturers of dangerous products. To keep the public confused about the hazards posed by global warming, second-hand smoke, asbestos, lead, plastics, and many other toxic materials, industry executives have hired unscrupulous scientists and lobbyists to dispute scientific evidence about health risks. In doing so, they have not only delayed action on specific hazards, but they have constructed barriers to make it harder for lawmakers, government agencies, and courts to respond to future threats.

The Orwellian strategy of dismissing research conducted by the scientific community as "junk science" and elevating science conducted by product defense specialists to "sound science" status also creates confusion about the very nature of scientific inquiry and undermines the public's confidence in science's ability to address public health and environmental concerns Such reckless practices have long existed, but Michaels argues that the Bush administration deepened the dysfunction by virtually handing over regulatory agencies to the very corporate powers whose products and behavior they are charged with overseeing.

In Doubt Is Their Product Michaels proves, beyond a doubt, that our regulatory system has been broken. He offers concrete, workable suggestions for how it can be restored by taking the politics out of science and ensuring that concern for public safety, rather than private profits, guides our regulatory policy. [196]

Playing “The Believing Game” vs. “The Doubting Game”
In my graduate program at the SIT Graduate Institute, in Brattleboro, Vermont, I was introduced to two concepts by one of my teachers, Diane Larsen-Freemen,[197] called “The Doubting Game and The Believing Game.” She writes about it in one of her books:

What’s the difference between the two voices I heard in my head — between the ‘Wait a minute’ and the ‘On the other hand’ responses? Well, perhaps it would be clearer if we reflected for a moment on what it requires to uphold each position. What I have attempted to do is play two games described in an article, ‘The Doubting Game and the Believing Game,’ which appears in an appendix to a book authored by Peter Elbow (1973). Elbow believes that doubting and believing are games because they are rule-governed, ritualized processes, which are no real life. The doubting game, Elbow says, requires logic and evidence. ‘It emphasizes a model of knowing as an act of discrimination: putting something on trial to see whether it is wanting or not’ (Larsen-Freeman 1983: 15). I think its practice is something far more common to the academic world than its counterpart — the believing game. ‘Our contemporary education, then, indoctrinates us in the glorification of doubt, has created in fact what could almost be called a religion or theology of doubt, in which to be seen as intelligent we have to be seen to doubt everything, to always point to what’s wrong and rarely to ask what is right or good…’ (Rinpoche 1993: 123-4). Many of us are very good at playing the doubting game, but we do so at a cost. We may find fault with a new idea before giving it a proper chance.
What does playing the believing game require, then? The believing game ‘emphasized a model of knowing as an act of constructing, an act of investment’ (Elbow 1973: 163). It is not just the withholding of doubt. Rather, it asks us to put on the eyeglasses of another person — to adopt his or her perspective — to see the method as the originator sees it. Further, it requires a willingness to explore what is new.
While it may appear that the traits attributed to the believing game are more desirable to possess, Elbow is not arguing that we should allow the doubting muscle to atrophy, nor am I. I am not advocating an abandonment of the doubting game, but rather that you attempt to understand first before you judge. [198]

Hence, it is important for us to consider possibilities, trying them on for size, before downright dismissing them, without having done little or any research whatsoever on the subject.

What Can You Do to Protect Yourselves?
Limit EMF Exposures
Well, given that accordingly the EMF effects act via the activation of VGCCs with a resulting increase in calcium ions inside the cell, not only stimulating virus production, but also stimulating nitric oxide synthase to produce more nitric oxide leading downstream to the creation of free radicals (aka reactive oxygen species), it is important to, first of all, limit EMF exposures as much as possible. As Oram Miller recommends,

Reduce use, increase distance, and favor hardwired connections whenever and wherever possible. You can put your cell phone in Airplane mode, making sure WiFi and Bluetooth are off while in Airplane mode, and do most every function on your cell phone on a different, hardwired device when inside your house. That includes talking, texting, emailing, audio and video streaming, and using various apps. [176] 

Hire a Building Biology Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist
Secondly, hire a Building Biology Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist (http://bit.ly/BuildingBiologistsEMRS) to help with the measurement and then reduction of EMFs in the home, for example, by shielding your home and sleeping area to block out health-damaging RF, eliminating any wiring errors in the home to reduce magnetic fields, and reducing sources of dirty electricity.

Implement a Radio-protective Diet and Supplement Program
Thirdly, I would say that implementing what I have dubbed and been working on developing “The Radio-protective Diet and Supplement Program™,” (yet to be published) is essential.

Two main supplements that I have used over the years that have greatly reduced my own sensitivity to electromagnetic fields dramatically, and boosted my immune system are (1) magnesium, as it acts as a natural VGCC blocker, in that it blocks calcium from entering the cell (and considering what we now know about viruses needing C2+), and (2) L-lysine, an essential amino acid, which works to calm down the production of nitric oxide (N.O.), (whereas the amino acid arginine is needed by nitric oxide synthase to stimulate the production of N.O.). L-lysine has the added benefit in that it acts in a similar fashion to selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) in that it binds with the serotonin receptors in the brain to increase serotonin levels. Taking both of these supplements before bed should also help you sleep better.

“The Radio-protective Diet and Supplement Program™,” is essentially (1) immune system boosting, (2) anti-inflammatory, (3) detoxifying, and (4) free-radical quenching. Hence, it consists of foods and supplements that support all these processes in the body. This would entail taking, for example, denatured organic whey powder to boost glutathione (the body’s super antioxidant) levels, which not only quenches free radicals, but also helps with boosting the immune system and detoxification, and also targeted transfer factors which boost one’s immune system by increasing natural killer cells; anti-inflammatories like ginger and turmeric; detoxifying foods like onions, garlic, and broccoli; and fruits and vegetables high in antioxidants; not to mention foods that replenish hormones and neurotransmitters lost from exposures to EMFs like serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, gamma amino butyric acid (GABA), and phenylethylamine (PEA) which include bananas (tryptophan), pineapple (serotonin), cashew nuts (serotonin), tart cherry juice (melatonin), sprouted rice milk (GABA), and chocolate (PEA). Another supplement I find essential for boosting the immune system, stimulating detoxification, and healing leaky gut (and probably other leaky barriers) are humic minerals.

Herbs and Supplements that Boost the Immune System
There have been a number of posts on social media websites recommending herbs and supplements that are supposed to be effective against the COVID-19. For example, Ty Bolinger lists a number of supplements and herbs one can take in an article he posted on his website, the Truth About Cancer, titled, “COVID-19: ‘The Good, the Bad, and the Answers’.” [199] And Doris Loh explains why taking Vitamin C will protect and enhance your immune system in two of her articles. [200] [201] I know from previous research that both EMFs and viruses seemingly deplete Vitamin C reserves, so supplementing with it seems like a very good idea. Besides the usual recommendations of wearing a mask and washing one’s hands often, here is a list of recommendations:

·      Magnesium Glycinate: Besides being an essential nutrient for immune health, [202] magnesium acts as a natural VGCC (voltage gated calcium channel) blocker. [203]  I recommend magnesium glycinate because it is more readily absorbed and easier on the stomach.

·         L-lysine: L-lysine has been used for many years as a folk-remedy for herpes-simplex outbreaks. However, I believe it is an overall all-around immune system booster in that l-lysine actually calms down the production of nitric oxide (N.O.), the excess of which can lead downstream to the production of a number of free radicals/reactive oxygen species, which — according to Doyon and Johansson (2017) [156] — can damage enzymes responsible for signaling in immune system response. Furthermore, l-lysine has the added benefit of acting as a natural form of selective serotonin uptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in that it binds with the serotonin receptors in the brain, hence increasing serotonin levels, and helping to reduce stress and increase relaxation. [204] [205] [206]

·      Vitamin C: There is at least one study suggesting that exposures to microwaves [207] can deplete vitamin C levels in the body, with other studies showing it to have a protective effect against both EMFs and viruses (and other pathogens). [208] [209] [210] Furthermore, there have been numerous reports of Chinese doctors using high-dose intravenous (IV) vitamin C therapy to successfully treat patients infected with COVID-19, [211] [212] with some American hospitals starting to follow suit. [213] [214]

·      Vitamin D: Vitamin D is an essential vitamin for immune health, [215] and as we can see from the previously mentioned research study, it has a protective effect against damage to the immune system by electromagnetic fields [160].

·      Curcumin/Turmeric: Curcumin, a chemical found in turmeric, is known to have anti-inflammatory properties that not only boost your immune system, [216] but also produces immunomodulatory effects that “modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells” and “also downregulate[ing] the expression of various proinflammatory cytokines including TNF, IL-1, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-12, and chemokines.” This is thought to occur “through inactivation of the transcription factor NF-kappaB.” [217]  In fact, supplementing with curcumin has been shown to be useful in quelling the cytokine storms, [218] experienced by so many critically affected with this COVID-19 infection.

·      Ginger: Ginger is known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and immune-boosting properties, [219] [220] [221] as well as also reducing pro-inflammatory cytokine levels. [222]

·      Garlic: Garlic is also known to boost immune function, [223] [224] as well as having a modulatory effect on cytokine excretions. [225] Garlic is also high in zinc and selenium, [226] two trace minerals essential for a healthy immune function. [227]

·      Andrographis Paniculata: In Thailand, the traditional herbal medicine, Andrographis Paniculata, (also known as as cleat and green chireta, and by the Thai name, fa talai jone) is being touted as a cure for COVID-19, [228] and is being sold throughout the country in local pharmacies, [229] though one doctor cautioned that there is no proof it is effective against the Wuhan coronavirus. (But there is no proof that it isn’t effective either, and there does seem to be evidence that it is.) It is claimed that “it prevents the virus entering cells, reduces virus cell division, boosts immunity, and ameliorates lung inflammation from viral infection.” A google search of “Andrographis Paniculata” and “VGCC” came up with the study [230] showing that Andrographis paniculata does in fact block voltage operated calcium channels and inhibits calcium influx, which should explain a lot here, given that the viruses do in fact need calcium to proliferate.

·      Humic/Fulvic Acids/Minerals: Humic and Fulvic Acids/Minerals are what I consider essential supplements that are increasingly entering people supplement boxes, and for this reason are also increasingly more difficult to find. Besides healing leaky-gut syndrome, they have multiple benefits, which include stimulating and balancing the immune system, as well as helping the body to better heal and detoxify. [231] [232]

·      Transfer Factor: Numerous studies have shown Transfer Factors to stimulate immune function. [233] [234] According to Dr. Aaron White, Ph.D., a biological psychologist, and former Duke University professor, and author of a book on the subject, “transfer factors act as ‘a signaling mechanism used by the immune system to alert white blood cells of potential threats in the body…. They are like post-it notes that deliver disease-related details to cells throughout the body’.” [235]

Dr. Matthias Rath, in an open letter to the people and governments of the world recommends a combination of high-dose vitamin C and L-lysine, plus green tea, trace minerals, and a few other supplements. [236] Ty Bollinger recommends the following natural antivirals:

Not surprisingly, in multiple studies, turmeric has also been shown to be effective at treating SARS coronavirus (STUDY, STUDY). [196]

And finally, a paper titled “Antiviral Natural Products and Herbal Medicines” (2014) appearing in the Journal of Traditional and Complementary Medicine, lists the following Chinese TCM herbs as being effective “for prophylaxis and treatment of [coronavirus] infection:”

·      Bupleurum spp. (柴胡 Chái Hú), 
·      Heteromorpha spp.,
·      Scrophularia scorodonia (玄參 Xuán Shēn),
·      Lycoris radiata (石蒜 Shí Suàn), 
·      Artemisia annua (黃花蒿 Huáng Huā Hāo), 
·      Pyrrosia lingua (石葦 Shí Wěi), 
·      Lindera aggregata (烏藥 Wū Yào),
·      Isatis indigotica (板藍根 Bǎn Lán Gēn),
·      Torreya nucifera ( Fěi), and
·      Houttuynia cordata (魚腥草 Yú Xīng Cǎo). [237]

However, you should always consult your doctor or medical professional before using any of the herbs or supplements listed here.

Balance and Tune Your Body Through Acupuncture, Qi Gong, Earthing, and the Use of a State-of-the-Art PEMF Machine
Finally, I would recommend balancing one’s own body’s electromagnetic field via the use of Qi Gong, acupuncture, Earthing, and especially the use of a state-of-the-art PEMF machine. I personally use one that has for me, I feel, (1) stimulated the healing process, (2) reduced inflammation, and (3) boosted my immune system. If you are interested in this last solution, contact me at <emfrefugee@gmail.com> for a recommendation.

Discussion and Conclusion
Majority of Healthy People Recover With Mild Symptoms
In a CNN report, titled, “Data from China shows the majority of people with Covid-19 only suffer mild symptoms, then recover, (March 20, 2020), it was reported that the majority of “people who contract the novel coronavirus experience mild symptoms,” that “the majority of people recover,” “the elderly are most at risk,” and that “people with other health issues are also at risk.” [238] In another article, appearing on NewsHub, titled, “99 percent of Italian COVID-19 deaths had health issues,” (March 20, 2020), it is also reported that “More than 99 percent of those who have died in Italy from COVID-19 coronavirus had pre-existing medical conditions, a new study has found,” [239] with the three most common medical conditions being high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease, with nearly half of those in the study having three or more health conditions. 

More People Still Die of the Flu
Furthermore, in another article titled “How Does the New Coronavirus Compare with the Flu,” (March 25, 2020), it is stated that

The new coronavirus causing COVID-19 has led to more than 454,000 illnesses and more than 20,550 deaths worldwide. For comparison, in the U.S. alone, the flu (also called influenza) has caused an estimated 38 million illnesses, 390,000 hospitalizations and 23,000 deaths this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). [240] 

5G EMF Effects Under Real-life Conditions
In a peer-reviewed scientific paper titled, “Adverse Health Effects of 5g Mobile Networking Technology Under Real-Life Conditions” [241] (2020), the authors, Ronald N. Kostoff, Paul Heroux, Michael Aschner, and Aristides Tsatsakis identify the adverse effects of wireless radiation (non-ionizing non-visible radiation) reported in the biomedical literature, while emphasizing that the majority of these studies and experiments have not been “designed to identify the more severe adverse effects reflective of the real-life operating environment in which wireless radiation systems operate.” They further add that many of these experiments fail to account for the “pulsing and modulation of the carrier signal,” while “the vast majority do not account for synergistic adverse effects of other toxic stimuli (such as chemical and biological) acting in concert with the wireless radiation.” They also further present evidence that the burgeoning 5G mobile networking technology will have harmful systemic effects on the human body.

Cumulative EMF Exposure Is Immunosuppressive
In a newly released YouTube, video titled, “Klinghardt Corona Virus 2nd Q&A,” [242] (March 25, 2020), Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt states the following (10:55 min to 14:26 min) with regards to electromagnetic fields and COVID-19:

The fact that is absolutely known is that the exposure to WIFI, the cumulative exposure to radio-waves is immunosuppressive and it’s especially one aspect of that I have traced very carefully is the suppression of the melatonin production. Melatonin has been shown to prevent the cytokine storm, actually the very thing that kills patients with this virus, and melatonin has been proven to prevent the cytokine storm in other models of illness and so it’s a very very good and safe assumption that is also involved in the deadly form of this illness. And so exposing yourself to WIFI, and it’s really the cumulative exposure, the cell phone towers next to you, the WIFI router that you have in the home, for most of you the worst thing, working on the computer while it’s not on airplane mode, and then the frequent use of your cell phone, are sort of pretty good — that’s a pretty good — collection the things that many of you are exposed to. And we know that the cumulative exposure is immunosuppressive. And it opens the door for any virus to become more virulent, to express itself in your system more violently. Now, there is now increasing evidence, I think I shared that in my PowerPoint, that the first arrival of the COVID-19 in the US was about two kilometers from my office, in the Evergreen Hospital, where we were able to actually have data and Evergreen Hospital is in the middle of the city of Kirkland, it’s a small part of a bedroom community of Seattle and it is one of only five cities in the US where 5G was rolled out a few months ago. And so there is a cell phone broadcasting device on every streetlight, every school and every hospital. On every accessible pole there is a device. So we went to measure in the city and the amount of 5G exposure is astronomical. And then we went into Evergreen Hospital where the death rate was not 1.5% but was 60% — six zero — and of course we found out that Evergreen Hospital had the highest amount of radio-wave exposure that was recorded anywhere in any hospital setting, any school, any fire station, and so forth. And so there is the very personal aspect of that, for me, confirming that the WIFI has a huge influence on the course of this illness. And now recently published was a map of the US showing where the highest density of radio-wave exposure is and the map of the highest death rate of the COVID-19 so far and the maps are identical. So… I think I leave it there. [239]

This article has presented numerous facts that support the theory that the electromagnetic radiation emitted by 5G related technology is not only weakening people’s immune systems, but also making the virus more virulent. Given the facts that

1.     we had EMF scientists predicting in a peer-reviewed scientific journal that this would happen;
2.     we have real research data demonstrating a clear wireless radiation impact on the immune system;
3.     we have a “mechanism of action” by which EMFs open up voltage gated calcium channels, allowing calcium to pour into the cell, and in effect feeding the virus with its essential nutrient, calcium;
4.     we have numerous people infected with the virus — especially outside of the 5G zones — showing no or only mild symptoms;
5.     there were recently 10,000 5G antennas installed and turned on in Wuhan shortly before the COVID-19 outbreak, not to mention 130,000 5G antennas installed throughout greater China;
6.     there were recently 5G systems installed in numerous hospitals in China, not to mention the new COVID-19 hospitals;
7.     we are seeing exponentially higher numbers of COVID-19 infections in places that have either implemented the 5G technology or engaging in full-blown trials, places like China, South Korea, Western Europe, and the United States as opposed to places that haven’t, like many countries in Eastern Europe, Africa, Central America, and South America; and
8.     there has been no testing done to discover whether or not there are biological implications to exposing life forms to this form of radiation;

we can conclude that the real problem here may very well in fact be with the 5G electromagnetic radiation weakening people’s immune systems, not to mention making the virus itself more virulent.

So… what we most likely had here was a normal cold virus ending up causing global panic and mayhem because it was initially made more virulent in one of the most 5G dense places on the planet, and then it spread like wildfire and caused the same problems in those other places implementing the 5G technology.

Maybe this should be in fact a wake-up call to the fact that all this electromagnetic pollution has really been adversely affecting us all for a long time, and it is what people really need to start worrying about, and perhaps it is time for the governments throughout the world to seriously investigate and address 5G possible health effects and put a halt to the premature rollout of 5G technology until they can prove that it is safe (which I doubt they can) and until, safer alternatives can be developed. But that does not seem to be happening. The 5G corporations seemingly have their dirty little fingers in all governments around the world.

City of Brussels Has Surprisingly Low Rates In Comparison With Surrounding Areas
And while there was talk of the government of Switzerland putting a halt to the 5G rollout, [243] they now seem to be going ahead with it. [244] And from all accounts the rollout of 5G is supposed to keep on proceeding around the world. And while the city of Brussels in the country of Belgium had put a pause on it [245], the rest of Belgium is moving forward with the rollout, [246] with a number of cities (Hasselt, [247] Leuven, [248] Ghent, [249] and Antwerp [250] [251] [252]) in Belgium already conducting trials. And what is so interesting about Belgium is that while the city of Brussels has foregone implementing or even trialing 5G due to their extremely stringent radiation standards, the rest of the country hasn’t and is going ahead with the trials and the implementation of the 5G technology seemingly as quickly as possible. And if you look at any major country that is grappling with this COVID-19 crisis, the highest number of cases are in all their major cities: for example, in the USA, New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, Chicago, and so on; in Spain, Madrid and Barcelona; in Italy, Milan, Rome, Bologna, Florence; in Thailand, Bangkok; and so on. But not so for Belgium: There are actually relatively fewer cases in the city of Brussels than in less populated areas. As of this writing (April 3rd, 2020), the highest number of cases are in the province of Limburg around the towns of Sint-Truiden and Alken. Well, this is exactly just south of the city of Hasselt, where they have been full-blown 24/7 trialing the 5G in a high-tech industry complex called Corda Campus since early 2018 for approximately two years.

[253]                                                                    [254]
In a press release by Ericsson, the following is stated:

Corda Campus and Ericsson to open first 5G Life campus in Belgium

·       Ericsson and Corda Campus to set up Belgian 5G Life Campus in Hasselt to test 5G technologies across a range of innovative applications
·       New 5G Life Campus to welcome Belgian industry players to develop 5G applications that benefit industry and society, help boost the country’s economy and create jobs
·       The first 5G network environment in Belgium will be available first quarter of 2018, ahead of the expected commercial launch of the technology in the country [255]

5G System Being Installed in Schools During Lockdown
And now that much of the USA is under a lockdown, politicians aligned with their 5G corporate partners are seeing it has an opportunistic event to covertly install 5G systems in our schools. [256]

The fact of the matter is that we all — whether we realize it or not — have been affected by this technology (from 1G to 5G) for a very long time. However, when we cannot sense something with our five senses of sight, sound, smell, touch, and taste, we — and our doctors — are more likely to attribute the symptoms to something else. What is new with the 5G is the sudden rollout, upping the ante with a major increase in this new form of radiation. As epidemiologist Dr. George Carlo described it years ago, it is like putting a frog in cold water and slowly heating the water. The frog doesn’t notice it is being cooked. Now, that we have turned up the heat quite a bit, we are seeing all these bizarre effects. And it seems like, unless people wake up to this, we are going to see more of these total disasters with toxic vaccines touted as their solutions.  In the early 1800s, before the discovery of germs, a Hungarian doctor named Semmelweis discovered that having doctors wash their hands before delivering babies could greatly reduce mortality rates in the maternity wards and was ridiculed and ostracized by all the top doctors and experts of the time. Perhaps it is time to start listening to those people who are more sensitive than you, those people who are the canaries in the coal mine. They might have something to tell us.

Horses Dying in Thailand of African Horse Virus Near 5G Installations
And as I am writing this from Thailand, where I am stuck on an extended vacation due to all of this, I read an article in an online newsmagazine that over 100 horses have been sickened with African Horse Virus, and the first time that this disease has ever appeared in Thailand. [258]. With a Google search, I find out that as of March 31st, 2020, 73 horses had died in the Pak Chang District in Nakhon Ratchasima Province, slightly west of the city of Nakhon Ratchasima. [259] And lo and behold… what do I find with a Google search of “Nakhon Ratachasima” and “5G”? I find that 5G was being trialed, and is now (as of March 2nd, 2020) being offered commercially in the city of Nakhon Ratachasima, (as well as a number of cities around Thailand, and numerous places in Bangkok). [65] [260] [261] [262]

Conspiracy Theories Galore
While there are a lot of conspiracy theories out there with regards to this, most are based on one or two facts and then wild speculation. For example, many Americans believe that the coronavirus escaped from a lab in Wuhan, while theories flying around China are that America planted the virus. Neither of these theories hold any water. And even a Russian Television (RT) (which has been called propaganda and fake news by the West) expose [263] on the virus, where they interviewed a top Russian virologist, states the following:

He tends to believe the coronavirus mutated naturally, probably in a bat: "I saw two viral strains in bats that had receptors that could make them virulent for humans, that is which were capable of binding with corresponding anti-receptors in human cells". Another animal may have been an intermediate host. "There was a theory that a snake was eaten, but I haven't seen any supporting evidence", he adds.

Aleksandr Cherpunov refers to a publication by virologists from different countries that explains this was a natural modification of the virus. They don't believe anyone engineered it: "these mutations happen within nature in bats, such viruses are in circulation, and so it was just a matter of time before they were passed on to humans".
This is even more likely, he notes, "since it's an RNA virus, and RNA isn't as protected from mutations as DNA, that is, such mutations are one thousand times more common, and then through natural selection, these mutations can appear and disappear." As far as Aleksandr Cherpunov's concerned,

"someone ate that bat"

The bat coronavirus's mutation will then have occurred either in bats or in humans who ingested the unmodified strain. "Experience teaches us that we must expect horrors", he sighs. [263]

What I have presented here is not wild speculation based on a few facts. It is not conspiracy theory and it is not confirmation bias, as the wireless industry, and its arms in the government and media would very much like you to believe. The following is the most recent statement from Dr. Martin Pall [264] on the subject:

5G radiation and the COVID-19 pandemic: Coincidence or causal relationship
Uploaded by Martin L. Pall
Date uploaded on Mar 31, 2020

Statement by Martin L. Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University, that 5G radiation is greatly stimulating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and also the major cause of death, pneumonia, suggesting an important public health measure to deactivate 5G small cells and antennae. Others have focused on the lowered immune function produced by EMFs with 5G especially active. That is not the focus here. Rather the primary focus is on how 5G impacts the cells of our bodies and on how that impact makes coronavirus infections much worse and how that impact also makes pneumonia, the primary cause of death of COVID-19 much worse, as well.

5G radiation and the COVID-19 pandemic: Coincidence or causal relationship
Martin L. Pall, Professor Emeritus of Biochemistry and Basic Medical Sciences, Washington State University

Two documents reprinted on [1], each argue that there are reasons to think that 5G radiation is greatly stimulating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and therefore, an important public health measure would be to shut down the 5G antennae and particularly the small cell 5G antennae in close proximity to our homes, schools, businesses, house of worship and hospitals.

The first of these documents [1] published by Miller et al., concerns the impact of 5G radiation on the immune system of the body and also suggests that 5G radiation may also increase the replication of the virus. In both of these ways, 5G radiation may be expected to make the COVID-19 pandemic much worse.

The second of these documents [1] is my own and is derived from a larger document on 5G radiation effects [2]. It starts with the history of 5G in Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic. Wuhan is China’s first 5G “smart city” and is the location of China’s first 5G highway where 5G radiation is being used to test self-driving vehicles. Approximately 10,000 5G antennae were installed and activated in Wuhan in 2019, with approximately 75 to 80% of these installed and activated in the last 2 ½ months of the year. The epidemic was first detected near the beginning of that 2 ½ month period and became vastly more severe, with extremely large increases in numbers of cases and in deaths by the end of 2019. That may, of course be coincidental. The death rate in other parts of China from COVID-19 infections has been substantially lower than that in Wuhan with its unparalleled high numbers of 5G antennae (Xu et al., BMJ 2020; 368:m606) – that of course could also be coincidental.
South Korea, which became the site of the worst epidemic outside of China, has large numbers of 5G antennae all over the country. The Milan area of Italy, currently, the worst epicenter in Europe also is a 5G center. And Seattle area, which was the worst area in the U.S. is also a major 5G area. New York City has become the largest epicenter in the US is another 5G site. These non-Chinese epidemic areas are not discussed in my paper, but these findings are accurate. Again, the locations of these epicenters in 5G areas may be coincidental.

Table 1: COVID-19, cases and deaths in four regions of Northern Italy, March 26, 2020
# of cases
# of deaths
Emilia Romagna

These figures add to the argument that 5G radiation may have a substantial role in exacerbating the COVID-19 pandemic – they are not definitive however and we must look to the mechanism of action of EMFs and the evidence that other EMFs produce similar, if less severe effects which are similar to but less severe than what we are apparently seeing following 5G exposure.
Electromagnetic fields, including the highly pulsed and therefore highly dangerous 5G millimeter wave radiation, act via activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) with VGCC activation producing five different effects, each of which have roles in stimulating the replication and spread of coronaviruses [1,2]:

1. Excessive intracellular calcium
2. Oxidative stress
3. NF-kappaB elevation
4. Inflammation
5. Apoptosis (programmed cell death)

The predominant cause of death in the COVID-19 epidemic, is pneumonia and each of these five effects also have roles in pneumonia, such that each of them is predicted to greatly increase the percent of people dying in this epidemic. It seems highly plausible that 5G radiation is greatly increasing the spread of the epidemic and also the death rate in individuals that are infected.
You may wish to consider all of this in conjunction with the broader findings with regard to the dangers of 5G and other effects apparently produced by 5G exposures [2].

How then did we get to this state? Many independent scientists, including myself, have argued that there should be no 5G rollout until there is extensive biological safety testing of genuine 5G radiation with all of its dangerous modulating pulses. However, the industry has refused to get independent 5G testing and the FCC and other regulatory agencies have refused to require such testing. Furthermore, the EMF “safety guidelines” which are supposed to protect us from health impacts of EMF radiation have been shown, based on eight different types of highly repeated studies, to fail massively to predict biological effects. They therefore fail to predict safety [3]. It follows from this that all assurances of safety based on these “safety guidelines” are fraudulent. Consequently, there is no evidence whatsoever of 5G safety and much evidence of lack of safety.

It is my opinion, therefore, that 5G radiation is greatly stimulating the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and also the major cause of death, pneumonia and therefore, an important public health measure would be to shut down the 5G antennae, particularly the small cell 5G antennae in close proximity to our homes, schools, businesses, houses of worship and hospitals. I will list some of my professional qualifications following the citations.

The VGCC activation mechanism has been amazingly well accepted in the scientific literature.
My first (2013) paper on it was placed on the Global Medical Discovery web site as one of the top medical papers of 2013. That paper has been cited 256 times according to the Google Scholar database. Most new scientific paradigms are only slowly accepted and this is much, much faster than usual.

I have given 59 invited professional talks on this topic in 15 countries, including 4 prestigious keynote addresses. I had been scheduled to give 1 more prestigious keynote address in April (has been postponed because of COVID19).
Two of my papers, my neuropsychiatric paper and my Wi-Fi paper, are each described by the publishing journal as being the most often downloaded paper in the history of each journal – stunning scientific interest in both papers.

My recent talks, one sponsored by the Dept. of Engineering and Applied Science at Queens University and the other at the World Congress on Physics in Berlin (where I was given a certificate of recognition) show together that both engineers and physicists are starting to realize the importance of this mechanism.

I am sorry to have to rain on your electromagnetic parade here, but it indeed does seem very likely from the evidence that has been presented here that it really isn’t the COVID-19 you should be worrying about, but rather the 5G (not to mention its predecessor 4G, 3G, 2G, and 1G), that has in fact most likely been contributing to making everybody sick. If the World does not change course, 5G might very well become its Titanic with the COVID-19 (and others like it) its icebergs.
