5G and Coronavirus – level 1

22-04-2020 15:00

The coronavirus is spreading around the world. At the same time, companies are building 5G internet towers.

Many people believe that it is a plan of important people and governments. There is a lot of false information on the Internet about 5G and the coronavirus.

Some people believe that 5G waves are bad for people´s health. They make people´s bodies weak.

Another theory says that the coronavirus is not real. Governments have a plan. They want people to stay at home. Companies can build 5G towers.

Health officials say that 5G is not dangerous for people. They also say that 5G and the coronavirus are not related. People must think more carefully. They must not believe all what they read and hear.

Difficult words: 5G (a new, faster network for Internet), wave (things that move through the air that can bring us electricity, phone service, or Internet), theory (an idea that a lot of people believe).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
