Correlation Between 5G and COVID-19 Cases Analyzed in Study

in Deep Diveslast year

Talk of a connection between 5G and COVID-19 has been met with denouncements and ridicule in the media. As far as they are concerned, it's not possible. There is no evidence to even consider this possible. Well, the media is wrong.


This started out with a viral audio/video of someone claiming to be a former exec of a British telecom giant. He claimed that there was no virus, and that all the deaths are because of 5G. David Icke then espoused a similar narrative shortly after. Talking about the link between 5G and COVID-19 is what ultimately got him banned from YouTube, and then from Facebook.

In fact, this allegation of 5G and COVID-19 deaths is what started the initial YouTube censorship around COVID-19. Then it progressed to encapsulate anything that wasn't supported by the WHO. That is, anything that contradicted the position of the WHO about COVID-19 was in breach of YouTube's new rules and would be banned/censored from the platform.

Why did they freak out so much about these claims? One thing is that people were starting to attack and destroy the 5G towers. I suspect they have ties with the telecom giants who are rolling this out and don't want the rollout disrupted or for the damage to cost the telecom industry money.

It's odd that the 5G rollout was considered "essential work" while other businesses were shutdown during the draconian tyrannical government lockdown. Very suspect. Since hadly any devices use 5G. It's clearly not essential even for communication. But it is essential to hurry and bring in an IoT future of everything connected into a big data world, with smart cities and surveillance tracking.

Study correlating 5G and COVID-19

A study was published in Spain last month by Bartomeu Payeras i Cifre. He set out to see if there was any correlation between cases of COVID-19 and 5G, since there was such fervor to denounce these claims as untrue. It turns out there is a correlation between 5G setups and operation, and the emergence of COVID-19 cases. There is a translation of the study here and here.

The study compared many different areas with and without 5G:

The method used was to compare the incidence (no. of cases per 1000 inhabitants) between countries with and without 5G technology. Between regions of the same country with and without 5G technology. Between cities of the same state with and without 5G technology. Between different neighbourhoods of the same city with the 5G network map of that city. Comparing states with common borders with and without 5G technology.

Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece

One of the first comparisons was 4 countries at roughly the same latitude: Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece. Spain and Italy are the two which have 5G.

The average infections of 5G Spain and Italy were 220% more than non-5G Portugal and Greece.

San Marino, first European state to get 5G

This is interesting. It was the first state to get 5G in Europe. It also had the highest number of cases per 1000 people. Looking at Italy overall, which surrounds San Marino, San Marino has 4.07 times more cases than Italy, and 27 times more cases than Croatia which does not have 5G.

New York

This correlation is visually evident as well. You can see the dark red cases of COVID-19 correlate well with the darker spots of 5G coverage:

South Africa

South Africa is the only place with 5G in Africa, and it has the highest number of cases.

Probability of random phenomenon

Here is a summary of the probability findings. You can go look more closely at the links above if you want to see the calculations.

The probability calculation is obtained by dividing the number of favourable cases by the number of possible cases. If the result shows that it is not a random phenomenon, it shows sufficient causal reason to analyze the causes.

(a) Probability that the 9 most contagious countries on the planet are countries with 5G networks.

The probability is 1 in 680,000,000.

If we include Japan, which also has 5G and rates of infection similar to those of South Korea …the probability is 1 in 8,500,000,000.

(b) Probability that the 5 most contagious countries in Europe have 5G networks.

The probability is 1 in 637.

The case of San Marino is highly significant.

It is located within the Italian territory, with a similar culture, economy, and social level, but presents much higher rates of infection. The only difference is the time of exposure of its citizens to 5G radiation, because it was the first state in the world to implement such technology on 4 September 2018, while in Italy it was 5 June 2019. This opens the door to debate about the likely influence of 5G on the increase in the rates of infection.

The probability is 1 in 37,636.


The analysis concludes that the is a " clear and close relationship between the rate of coronavirus infections and 5G antenna location."

It notes that it doesn't analyze any benefit or harm to human health from 5G electromagnetic radiation, but it does indicate a possible cause-effect from the COVID-19 pandemic.

These data and results have the value of being taken “in vivo”, not based on prospective or laboratory studies. Never before have we had so much epidemiological information about a disease in humans to be able to produce scientific studies. A means of answering the question of cause and effect would be to disconnect the 5G networks, at least as a preventive measure, and see the results of the evolution of cases of coronavirus. So would studying the rate of infection in a state that declared a 5G moratorium after the pandemic started and studying if the statistics change.

Given the evidence presented here, the data and conclusions of this study urgently need to be given due consideration. Given the current gravity of the pandemic, the media and political and health authorities have a responsibility to take urgent action. A failure to act in the face of the findings of this study could be considered negligent at the very least and very possibly criminal.

It could be that there is a virus causing illness in a small percentage of the population who becomes infected, and that the number of infected or severity of symptoms could be exacerbated by the presence of 5G frequencies.

As the study suggests, disabling 5G networks would be prudent. Especially if there is a "second wave" as have been predicted. I doubt this will happen. But it would show if 5G is indeed increasing the number of cases or severity of the illness.

There isn't proof that 5G kills, or 5G causes the illness, or 5G makes people sicker from COVID-19. Contrary to the media denouncing any relation whatsoever, there is a correlation between 5G and COVID-19 cases, and potentially severity as well when I look at NYC.



I work on cell towers.
If 5g causes covid than how come i haven't had covid yet?🤣🤣🤣
I think the 5g causing covid conspiracy is pretty goofy.

I know your post is about correlation not cause.. 😉👍

I don't think 5G causes COVID. These are interesting things to look at. I see people get mad here just for posting about a study that shows a correlation. It's like we can't even look at evidence for something... Glad to see you aren't mad ;)


Tell us, why 6 feet of separation? Can you describe a "dirty atmosphere" and what that means?

Give me a little more context in you questions so I that I may be able to answer them better for you. ✌

Without a doubt, there is a correlation. It'll be interesting to see if causality is ever established.

It could be completely non-causal: 5G is more prevalent in densely populated areas and Covid infections are more prevalent in densely populated areas.

Then again, the correlation might be an indicator that 5G weakens human immune systems... I just wonder if we'll ever really know.

I don't think we'll ever find out. Just another thing we can think about that will never get changed. Full speed ahead on 5G... just under the range of microwave crowd control weapons... for now.

The section I’m having trouble with is the probability section. 9 countries, 1 in 680 million. Add japan 1 in 8.5 billion? That’s a bit odd, such a massive jump with just one country. The probability is also a bit strange, those numbers seem extreme if bringing it down to 1 is then 1 in 637.

Other than that, I definitely think there’s things there with the correlation to 5g. Typically if the media vehemently oppose something, you’re on the right track!

Yeah I don't know how that works. I'd have to go verify it. I'm just reporting the study ;)

Nicely presented as this issue had not been fully understood by me. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah, there might be something there. We can't know without proper testing.

Very interesting report, makes you wonder when they flat out silence a topic like this.

Hopefully, corono virus disease will quickly disappear in this world, with the spread of Covid 19, all our activities have stopped, right? Hopefully we are in a good condition ...

Let's not jump to conclusions... haha

But as you say, it is interesting to see the correlation.

Correlation doesnt equal causation

Correlation is not causation and I remain convinced radio waves do not cause viruses or respiratory problems which is the killer with COVID-19. I'm also convinced COVID-19 is a real virus (though its dangers have been somewhat exaggerated). 5g is designed primarily for dense urban environments. I bet COVID-19 numbers correspond well with those also.

I think in this case, this kind of stuff is likely to get censored on social media sites because it is fairly absurd yet could lead to panic or people acting irrationally given the fear that is out there. The same reason some people get pissed off with posts like this. This in no way constitutes evidence of any kind yet when you create an article like this, that is the assumption many people will make when reading it, despite whatever disclaimers you might put at the end.

But if you like absurd correlations, here are some more:

The analysis concludes that the is a " clear and close relationship between the rate of coronavirus infections and 5G antenna location."

This is obviously a commissioned analysis, with no value whatsoever. The main problems:

  1. Only the correlation between the 5G network and the number of infected was taken into account. Like there was a vacuum around them with no other possible causes.
  2. The stats of number of cases are taken as a fact, and they are not.
  3. If there is a correlation, then South Korea should be devastated, because it has the highest density 5G per population. It is not so. Therefore, the authors of this ‘analysis’ do not show the same maps like in case of Italy or Spain.
  4. If you would have the numbers of any seasonal flu, it would show the most cases where the population is most dense, ie. big cities… where, by some curious coincidence, ALL NEW TECHNOLOGY IS INSTALLED FIRST.

This ‘analysis’ really couldn’t be more ridiculous… and it’s not your fault, @krnel.

Correlation does not mean causality, its simply casualty... Its not strange that the most populated areas are the most affected by a rapidly transmitted virus, and that also those areas are the first to get 5G development (you wont be installing 5G in rural areas where few people use phones)... Also, its not the media saying that 5G is not dangerous, its all scientific community and experts... All studies concluding 5G being dangerous, are mostly poorly done and never published in any important scientific magazine... It happened to 4G, and 3G, and it will continue to happen, conspiracies will never end, its part of our human nature... Covid-19 is a virus, its real, and scientist been warning for years that something like this could happen, there's even thousands of movies done about it... Pandemics also happen before, when there was no 5G or any electromagnetic communication whatsoever...

spot on!

Yup, no where did I say causation. I said correlation. It's interesting to see the correlation.

There is no interest whatsoever in things that correlate if there is no causation. The reason people correlate those two, is to create conspiracy theories about the causation. That is the only possible reason you might want to correlate those two.

Yes, no interest whatsoever in looking at how cigarettes correlate with negative health outcomes in the 50 and 60s. Let's just never look deeper at it and the tobacco industry was right. It's just a correlation, not causation. Nothing to even consider. Cigarettes are good, ask your doctors, they recommend Camels.

Yeah, let's behave like those two things are comparable.
Like, Corona + G5 have as much to do with each other as Homosexuality with Veganism.

There is no interest whatsoever in things that correlate if there is no causation.

You said that. Which is wrong. I was giving an example of how willfully ignorant that type of thinking is. You don't know if there is causation until you keep looking to prove or disprove it.

The 5G and COVID topic is heated, and if there was nothing there, then people could be shown to leave it alone. What's the rush with rolling out 5G when hardly any device uses it? Turn it off for a bit, show that the correlation was just that and the case is closed and people who espouse 5g=covid won't have a leg to stand on.

Good idea, how about we stop vaccinating for 10 years to see if the death count goes up significantly again. Or, how about we turn off electricity and see if cancer is correlated to that.

Or better, let's turn off internet for a time to see if that is somehow related to crimes.

Or, we could leave science to scientists and stop spreading shit we got no idea about.

The author of the study published it, and I wrote about it. Yeah, stop talking about things and questioning what we're told is or isn't possible. Great plan. Obey.

This is what I was intending to write while I was halfway done with the article. Air Pollution is highly linked to many diseases. You'll find a high correlation between air pollution and 5G towers as well.

I prefer air pollution correlation with COVID-19, than 5G. I don't think there is a strong enough link with 5G, but I could be wrong. But hey, this guys says "There is no interest whatsoever in things that correlate if there is no causation. " So don't bother looking into pollution, it's just a correlation. Move along.

It's a study about a correlation. Not proof. Not that it's a cause. It's interesting to see that someone looked at it. Information can't be considered to see what is possible or not? If there was no correlation, then great, there would be nothing there. But maybe there is something. There have been correlations with cigarettes and health issues for a while before anything was proven. If there was no correlation, people wouldn't have looked into it more. I don't think there is a strong enough link with 5G, but I could be wrong. Things should be open to be considered. No? Why get so mad about 1 post looking at data to show a correlation? More data and studies could be done to prove it safe and settle the issue once and for all. Only one cell phone can use 5G I think. Taking them offline for a little bit would settle the issue.

Dude that's really hash... We are humans and entitled to have different opinions towards many things. Take it easy mate.
