CAPE TOWN - Conspiracy theories based on unsupported facts and beliefs have led to claims that 5G and the Coronavirus are linked - They are NOT.
South African Health Minister, Dr Zweli Mkhize, refuted these claims saying :“The reality is that 5G is a technology, and coronavirus is an organic infection that is based on a living viral agent."
“The coronavirus is not something that you can link to any technology. The form of spread is well described scientifically in terms of the viral agents”.
“And its behaviour is well-known. We have tracked this virus and we know it comes from animals.”
Mkhize explains zoonosis transmission - a disease found in animals transmitted to humans - while dismissing the conspiracy theories as fake news.
