Recently, as a result of false information suggesting a link between 5G and Coronavirus, vandals have set fire to some mobile masts. There is no scientific evidence of any link between 5G and Coronavirus. Fact.

Why you’re safe and sound with 5G

Are you ready for lots of letters? The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, ICNIRP for short, produces industry guidelines that all network operators like Three must follow.

This public health body is independent of the telecoms industry. Their guidelines will ensure there are no 5G dangers to the public.

What are the health implications of 5G?

This is where ICNIRP really nails it. They’ve looked into the positioning of antennas and have told all network operators the safe distances they can operate to. This means they can prevent placing or using any antennas that put the public at risk from electro-magnetic fields.

All sites are checked by an independent third-party supplier to make sure the operators meet ICNIRP guidelines. So, you can be sure there will be no 5G health risks. What’s more the networks actively monitor these safety levels and continue to as 5G networks go live.

5G safety – what the professionals say

As the communications regulator, Ofcom carry out tests to ensure mobile phone signals are within safe levels for people to use. Recently they measured 5G mobile signals across different areas of the UK. At every location, levels were a small fraction of what’s recommended in international guidelines.

It’s also good to know that Public Health England have provided reassurance about 5G technology. 5G follows the same health and safety guidelines as 4G, 3G, and 2G. This really is another step along a well-trodden path.

So, whatever you’ve heard, worried about, or seen, we can assure you that 5G is safe.
