Since the outbreak of Coronavirus which has been killing thousands of lives across the world, different opinions and suggestions as to the origin of the deadly disease have been made by world leaders, scientist, religion heads and concerned citizens from different nations.

No solid confirmation yet as to the cause and source of the virus. Although all fingers have been pointed to China as the pioneer of the disease following the outbreak of the virus from Wuhan.

Meanwhile, the Chinese foreign ministry has levelled allegation against the U.S. Army, accusing them of importing Coronavirus to Wuhan, China.

While still in search for answers as to the truth behind the dreaded virus, another opinion broke the internet a few days ago, alleging that the new generation of network, the 5G LTE network is the cause of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Naija News understands that the 5G LTE network has been condemned by many since its inception.

About seven months ago, this online news platform reported that the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive, Nigerian Communications Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, has revealed that the country will soon start using the  Fifth Generation service network in the country.

Since a report emerged that the Federal Government of Nigeria has turned a green light to the installation of the 5G network in the country, Nigerians in the know have stood against the development, with claims that the new generation of the network is harmful to human health.

However, it will interest you to know that a Nigeria youth who goes by the name, Yusuf Abdulrahman Sambo is part of Scotland’s 5G Revolution team.
