No, 5G Doesn't Cause Coronavirus, There's No "New World Order"

A certain theory or for the lack of a better word, meme, has been going around linking the development of 5G technology to the spread of the coronavirus. A very bizarre theory making rounds online has pitched the development of 5G technology as a tool that aids in the spread of the coronavirus, and to top it all, some see the development of potential vaccines as part of a "New World Order", yes as bizarre as that sounds, some seem to agree with it. Have a look at this Facebook post embedded below;

That is a post from Femi Fani-Kayode, a prominent Nigerian politician who previously served as the country's Minister of Aviation. What Fani-Kayode espoused in that Facebook post is truly bizzare to a critical mind. In that post, he references "Covid 19, 5G, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, the Corona vaccine, the Illuminati, the New World Order, the Pope, the Deep State, Artificial Intelligence, the Bilderburg Group, the Bohemian Grove, the One World Religion or the One World Economy," terms that are popular with conspiracy theorists and have no substance when a little fact-checking is applied.

"Simply put the coronavirus is merely the light appetiser whilst the establishment and deployment of 5G is the main course and the introduction of the vaccine will be the glorious and resplendent dessert. This indeed is a deadly meal." Fani-Kayode's post read. A little critical thinking can, however, make it clear that such statement doesn't veil far from "utter nonsense".

To veer of from that Facebook post, theories of 5G technology used to spread coronavirus and vaccines being administered as part of a so-called "New World Order" have also been espoused across many social media posts, mainly in African circles, where religion is known to be more mainstream than in other regions. However, we urge this, don't let anyone take advantage of your religion to back up bizarre theories. Please, think critically, don't let anyone get you into panic in the middle of a worldwide pandemic. The coronavirus is only a pandemic and remains so. Pandemics have come and gone and we should hope that with increasing medical research and efforts that a solution, be it a vaccine or treatment, is developed to help curb such a disease and return society to normal.

It's important that we think critically and logically. Please do. Let us not be misled by false theories with no evidence to back them up. Please, fact-check whatever unusual claim you see on the internet. It'll truly help in times like this, thanks!
