Answer 1
August, 2021

People are used to explaining everything incomprehensible since ancient times. For example, "Lightning and thunderstorms because Zeus is angry." Since then, nothing has changed, and humanity is still trying to explain the frightening.

And then there is the global pandemic and coronavirus. This is where it is scary and incomprehensible. "What to do and who is to blame?"

The news about new technologies, 5G network towers added fuel to the panic fire. The trigger "everything new is evil" works. The authors of the rumor saw a danger in the towers for new 5G networks. "Fake" was picked up by celebrities, for example, actor Woody Harrelson, singer M.I.A. and even Nikita Mikhalkov.

Radiation, electromagnetic waves, illness, death, conspiracy theorists linked everything to the coronavirus - and here is a ready-made conspiracy theory. The seeds fell into the fertile land of delusion and fear that COVID-19 has already created.

Of course, 5G networks are not accused of being unjustifiably, they are not dangerous for health, human life and have nothing to do with COVID-19.

One of the reasons was the information that the towers, due to the increase in frequency, should be located more often (every 200 meters) - supposedly the radiation will be stronger. Therefore, it scared many.

But it is enough to open a physics textbook and understand that such a quantity as radiation power is also important. In Russia, one of the most stringent measures (as opposed to, for example, in Europe) regulation of the radiation power of base stations. However, the lack of oversight by supervisory authorities worries many.
