COAI Cautions General Public on FALSE Rumours Regarding 5G

COAI, the representative body for the Indian telecommunications industry, today expressed its concern regarding false rumours connecting 5G technology with the spread of Coivd-19.

COAI said it has come across multiple messages on social media platforms as well as reports in a few regional media mentioning ‘5G spectrum trials’ as the probable cause of rising cases of COVID-19.

“We would like to clarify that these rumours are absolutely FALSE. We urge people not to fall for such baseless misinformation. Several countries in the world have already rolled out 5G networks and people are using these services safely. Even the World Health Organisation has clarified that there is no correlation between 5G technology and COVID-19.

We have shared our concerns with the Department of Telecommunications and have apprised them of the situation. I appeal to fellow citizens to beware of these fake messages. Together we can fight this menace of misinformation,” said Lt. Gen. Dr. S.P. Kochhar, Director General, COAI.

COAI urged the media to help quell such unsubstantiated and unverified claims.
