In a statement on Friday, the global health body stated that the virus cannot travel on radio waves or mobile networks.
WHO insisted that COVID-19 is a respiratory disease which is spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks.
“People can also be infected by touching a contaminated surface and then their eyes, mouth or nose,” it said.
WHO revealed that the COVID-19 was spreading in many countries that do not even have 5G mobile networks, adding that getting infected with the virus was not a death sentence.
“Most COVID-19 infected persons can recover and eliminate the virus from their bodies.
“If you are infected by the disease, make sure you treat your symptoms.
“If you have cough, fever and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early, but call your health facility by telephone first.
“Most patients recover, thanks to supportive care,” WHO said.
