Coronavirus 5G Networks Disinformation
Coronavirus 5G Networks Disinformation hoax
5G networks and coronavirus has no intersection. This false claim: ” 5G networks is making people to sick” was a trending story on social media.
So many people were confuse that 5G network is responsible for the infecious disease, the novel coronavirus. In this ultimate guide, I will show you the reason why 5G and coronavirus have no point of relationship.
The novel coronavirus is spreading all around the world. As the coronavirus spreads, another dangerous virus has followed closely behind:
The scourge of individuals, government leaders and official authorities obfuscating data, suppressing information, and misinforming citizens about the outbreak of the epidemic.
With the crisis likely to get worse before it gets better, many countries’ citizens are increasingly unsure just whom or what to believe. This not only increases the threat to public health, but it also undermines trust in the very institutions on which we rely to fight the virus.

Surprisingly,this new virus has its origin in China, has spread to other authoritarian states such as Iran and Russia, and has now infected the highest levels of government in the United States, Iran and UK.
The disease of disinformation first broke out in Wuhan. Its most prominent victim is a Wuhan doctor, named Li Wenliang, who first posted an alert about a mysterious illness to a group chat of medical colleagues in late December.
Accused of spreading rumors, he was summoned by health authorities in the middle of the night and forced to confess to making “false comments.” His warning went unheeded, and by early February he was dead from the virus.
As the epidemic began to take hold, Wuhan became a jarring tale of two different stories: a sanitized, government approved version of events and a very different reality on the ground.
The Fifth generation of wireless communication technologies capable of supporting cellular data networks is called 5G. Large-scale adoption began in 2019 and today virtually every internet service provider in the developed world are upgrading their infrastructure to offer 5G functionality.
5G communication requires the use of communications devices especially mobile phones designed to support the technology. The frequency spectrum of 5G is divided into millimeter waves, mid-band, and low-band. Low-band uses a similar frequency range as the predecessor, 4G.
5G millimeter wave, is the fastest of all, with actual speeds often being 1–2 Gbit/s down. The reach of 5G is short, so more cells are required. Millimeter waves have difficulty traversing many walls and windows, so indoor coverage is usually limited.

5G mid-band is the most widely deployed, in over 30 networks. Speeds in a 100 MHz wide band are usually 100–400 Mbit/s down. In the lab and occasionally in the field, speeds can go over a gigabit per second. Frequencies deployed are from 2.4 GHz to 4.2 GHz.
Sprint and China Mobile are using 2.5 GHz, while others are mostly between 3.3 and 4.2 GHz. Many areas can be covered simply by upgrading existing towers, which lowers the cost.
Mid-band networks have better reach, bringing the cost close to the cost of 4G. 5G low-band offers similar capacity to advanced 4G. 5G is the 5th generation mobile network.
It is a new global wireless standard after 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. 5G enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, things and devices.
5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users.
Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connects new industries. The previous generations of mobile networks are 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G.
The differences 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G
First generation – 1G:
1980s: 1G delivered analog voice.
Second generation – 2G:
Early 1990s: 2G introduced digital voice (e.g. CDMA- Code Division Multiple Access).
Third generation – 3G:
Early 2000s: 3G brought mobile data (e.g. CDMA2000).
Fourth generation – 4G LTE:
2010s: 4G LTE ushered in the era of mobile broadband.
1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G all led to 5G, which is designed to provide more connectivity than was ever available before. 5G is a unified, more capable air interface.
It has been designed with an extended capacity to enable next-generation user experiences, empower new deployment models and deliver new services.
With high speeds, superior reliability and negligible latency, 5G will expand the mobile ecosystem into new realms. 5G will impact every industry, making safer transportation, remote healthcare, precision agriculture, digitized logistics and more a reality.
Impart of 5G on Global economy
5G is driving global growth, $13.2 Trillion dollars of global economic output, 22.3 Million new jobs will be created and $2.1 Trillion dollars in GDP growth.
Analyst predict 5G Economy study, we found that 5G’s full economic effect will likely be realized across the globe by 2035, supporting a wide range of industries and potentially enabling up to $13.2 trillion worth of goods and services.
This impact is much greater than previous network generations. The development requirements of the new 5G network are also expanding beyond the traditional mobile networking players to industries such as the automotive industry.
The study also revealed that the 5G value chain (including OEMs, operators, content creators, app developers, and consumers) could alone support up to 22.3 million jobs, or more than one job for every person in Beijing, China.
And there are many emerging and new applications that will still be defined in the future. Only time will tell what the full “5G effect” on the economy is going to be.
Broadly speaking, 5G is used across three main types of connected services, including enhanced mobile broadband, mission-critical communications, and the massive IoT.
A defining capability of 5G is that it is designed for forward compatibility, the ability to flexibly support future services that are unknown today.
Enhanced mobile broadband
In addition to making our smartphones better, 5G mobile technology can usher in new immersive experiences such
as VR and AR with faster, more uniform data rates, lower latency, and lower cost-per-bit.
5G can enable new services that can transform industries with ultra-reliable, available, low-latency links like remote control of critical infrastructure, vehicles, and medical procedures.
5G is meant to seamlessly connect a massive number of embedded sensors in virtually everything through the ability to scale down in data rates, power, and mobility—providing extremely lean and low-cost connectivity solutions.
5G is designed to deliver peak data rates up to 20 Gbps based on IMT-2020 requirements.
Qualcomm Technologies’ flagship 5G solutions, the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X55 and Snapdragon X60 Modem-RF Systems, are designed to achieve up to 7.5 Gbps in downlink peak data rates.
But 5G is about more than just how fast it is. In addition to higher peak data rates, 5G is designed to provide much more network capacity by expanding into new spectrum, such as mmWave.
5G can also deliver much lower latency for a more immediate response and can provide an overall more uniform user experience so that the data rates stay consistently high, even when users are moving around.
And the new 5G NR mobile network is backed up by a Gigabit LTE coverage foundation, which can provide ubiquitous Gigabit-class connectivity.
How does 5G work
Like 4G LTE, 5G is also OFDM-based (Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing) and will operate based on the same mobile networking principles.
However, the new 5G NR (New Radio) air interface will further enhance OFDM to deliver a much higher degree of flexibility and scalability.
5G will not only deliver faster, better mobile broadband services compared to 4G LTE, but it will also expand into new
service areas, such as mission-critical communications and connecting the massive IoT.
This is enabled by many new 5G NR air interface design techniques, such as a new self-contained TDD subframe design.
5G is already here today, and global operators started launching new 5G networks in early 2019. 5G mobile networks are expected to be available nationwide in many countries by 2020.

Also, all major Android phone manufacturers are commercializing 5G phones. And soon, even more people may be able to access 5G.
5G has been deployed in 20+ countries and counting. We are seeing much faster rollout and adoption compared with 4G. Consumers are very excited about the high speeds and low latencies.
But 5G goes beyond these benefits by also providing the capability for mission-critical services, enhanced mobile broadband and massive IoT.
While it is hard to predict when everyone will have access to 5G, we are seeing great momentum of 5G launches in its first year and we expect more countries to launch their 5G networks in 2020 and beyond.
Final Verdict on 5G causing coronavirus
There is public spectrum for commercial use and private spectrum for government use, especially for radar systems. The creation of spectrum frequency band is made by National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
Before testing any project on any new spectrum, permission must be granted by Federal Communications Commission (FCC). There are rules and regulation, establish by the FCC for both Commercial and private use of new spectrum licences.
What this means, is that, in order to utilize any new spectrum, you must employ Spectrum Access System(SAS) to dynamically manage and use the spectrum.
In order to share spectrum with other users, the SAS must access an Environment Sensing Capability(ESC) network in order to comply with Federal Communications Commission regulations.
5G Health Safety
Anti-5G campaigners, particularly with regards to radiation, have voiced concerns about the tech. However research shows there’s no scientific evidence of any risks.
In fact, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP), a body that assesses the health risks of radio broadcasts, has declared 5G completely safe as long as its new guidelines are followed.
Seven years was spent by ICNIRP with guidelines, which have been developed after a thorough review of all relevant scientific literature, scientific workshops, and extensive public consultation process.
The ICNIRP stated that even its previous guidelines, dating back to 1998, would have been adequate for 5G, but additional protections have been put in place. These new guidelines address all forms of 5G, including the very highest
This follows tests from Ofcom (the UKs communications regulator), which found that electromagnetic field (EMF) emissions from 5G are a fraction of the highest safe level. The maximum measured at any site was approximately 1.5% of those levels.
There have also been growing and baseless concerns that 5G is in some way related to Covid-19, even leading masts to be subject to arson attacks in the UK. But this is nothing more than a conspiracy theory.
In a statement, Mobile UK a trade association representing the UK’s main mobile networks, said: “There is no scientific evidence of any link between 5G and coronavirus. Fact.
Not only are these claims baseless, they are harmful for the people and businesses that rely on the continuity of our services.”
There are different Internet regulation body, each with different responsibility to ensure and enforce the use of licenced frequency spectrum band to achieve safety and hazard free environment. No link between 5G and coronavirus. It doesn’t make sense.
