Abstract

In this research, we show that 5G millimeter waves could be absorbed by dermatologic cells acting like antennas, transferred to other cells and play the main role in producing Coronaviruses in biological cells. DNA is built from charged electrons and atoms and has an inductor-like structure. This structure could be divided into linear, toroid and round inductors. Inductors interact with external electromagnetic waves, move and produce some extra waves within the cells. The shapes of these waves are similar to shapes of hexagonal and pentagonal bases of their DNA source. These waves produce some holes in liquids within the nucleus. To fill these holes, some extra hexagonal and pentagonal bases are produced. These bases could join to each other and form virus-like structures such as Coronavirus. To produce these viruses within a cell, it is necessary that the wavelength of external waves be shorter than the size of the cell. Thus 5G millimeter waves could be good candidates for applying in constructing virus-like structures such as Coronaviruses (COVID-19) within cells.

... A paper received considerable attention for claiming that 5G technology, as is used in the new and generation of mobile phones, could induce COVID-19 in skin cells (30) . After those claims were debunked as unsupported, the paper's PDF file disappeared from public view, in violation of the best practices for retracted papers, as specified by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which requires retracted papers to indicated the retracted status across each page with a prominent "RETRACTED" stamped across each page. ...

Objectives: This paper retrospectively reflects on opportunities and risks encountered in 2020 related to publishing COVID-19-related research, and offers perspectives on how researchers should proceed cautiously in 2021. Methods: Based on select literature, the author’s perspective, and case studies sourced primarily from PubMed, challenges in publishing COVID-19-related research observed in 2020 and early 2021 are described. Background problems and suggestions for possible solutions are provided. Findings: 2020 was highly transformative, not only for biomedical research as a direct result of a focus on COVID-19, but because many aspects of publishing were challenged. Some concerns that had already been emphasized recently, such as reproducibility, misinformation, or predatory publishing, were amplified in 2020, and carried over into 2021. Open data policies were more encouraged, but in select cases, they were weakly implemented. Applications: Both young and established researchers and academics alike, in their passionate desire to contribute to humanity’s advance in understanding COVID-19, need to appreciate several risks and perils that lie within academic publishing.
... non-related) papers combined with shorter submission-to-acceptance time, indicative of a shorter peer-review (and thus unlikely to be thorough and meaningful), creates a situation that could be reasonably considered susceptible to the impulsive release of publications of inadequate quality, i.e., susceptible to publishing bad or incorrect science, or just nonsense (e.g. article reporting a link between 5G and SARS-CoV-2) (Fioranelli et al., 2020). At least theoretically, preprinting provides a (possible) way to ameliorate this problem by opening a time window for public pre-submission peer-review that could complement the journal peer-review. ...

Introduction: COVID-19-related (vs. non-related) articles appear to be more expeditiously processed and published in peer-reviewed journals. We aimed to evaluate: (i) whether COVID-19-related preprints were favored for publication, (ii) preprinting trends and public discussion of the preprints, and (iii) the relationship between the publication topic (COVID-19-related or not) and quality issues. Methods: Manuscripts deposited at bioRxiv and medRxiv between January 1 and September 27 were assessed for the probability of publishing in peer-reviewed journals, and those published were evaluated for submission-to-acceptance time. The extent of public discussion was assessed based on Altmetric and Disqus data. The Retraction Watch Database and PubMed were used to explore the retraction of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 articles and preprints. Results: With adjustment for the preprinting server and number of deposited versions, COVID-19-related preprints were more likely to be published within 120 days since the deposition of the first version (OR=2.04, 95%CI 1.87-2.23) as well as over the entire observed period (OR=1.42, 95%CI 1.33-1.52). Submission-to-acceptance was by 38.67 days (95%CI 34.96-42.39) shorter for COVID-19 articles. Public discussion of preprints was modest and COVID-19 articles were overrepresented in the pool of retracted articles in 2020. Conclusion: Current data suggest a preference for publication of COVID-19-related preprints over the observed period.

5G technology is a higher frequency technology that is set to be a predecessor of the 4G network and bring about a transformative ecosystem. Expected benefits are to be in economic growth as the 5G technology is expected to contribute to the incomes of the mobile networks and their associated value chains. The smart technology narrative is set to bring about economic prosperity and also help the health system by way of personalized monitoring methods for remote patients and occupational flow by better storage of patients' digital data and patient consultations. However, these benefits may be short lived as this high frequency technology will come with massive radiation from the closely erected antennas which will have adverse biological, physiological and psychological health effects which will lead to advanced skin, eyes, heart problems, respiratory diseases, poor child development and compromised immune systems for humanity. It is the aim of this paper to review literature highlighting these health effects, this will enable policymakers, scientists and the end users to make informed decisions on whether to allow the full deployment of the 5G network in their nations or not. Recommendations from this paper are, for the world to have an independent board that conducts comprehensive studies on the long run effects of high frequency radiation on humans by carrying out real life experiments.
