DISINFO: 5G technology can have adverse effects on birds


5G transmitter masts can cause harm to birds. Any form of radiation, as well as seasonal changeability causes excitability and unstable moods in birds. A recent incident in Tbilisi, when crows attacked humans, confirms that certain environmental conditions have caused neurological disorders and excitability in birds.


Recurring conspiracy theory about 5G technology. There is no proof confirming that 5G technology is harmful to birds. The author of the statement was citing a member of medical staff from New Hospitals (a clinic in Tbilisi) , giving the impression that the claim about 5G and birds is an official medical position of the hospital. Myth Detector reached out to the New Hospitals administration who clarified that the statement about alleged links between 5G and birds does not reflect the clinic’s official position and the person cited as a doctor is in fact a member of its technical team rather than a medical person.
