‘Former world champion boxer Amir Khan has suggested that coronavirus did not originate in and China and that the Covid-19 pandemic could be part of a plot to test new 5G communication networks and “get rid of a lot of us.”
In a confusing series of clips, the British star repeated a baseless conspiracy theory linking coronavirus to the 5G broadband network, which has recently been rolled out in several countries across the world.
Despite expert scientific studies repeatedly concluding that the high-speed communications system does not pose a threat to humans, Khan said he had “been watching a lot of these videos and stuff” and believed the technology “obviously”poisons human cells and blood, adding that it would “make things bad.”
“I don’t think it’s coming from China,” a drowsy-looking Khan said in a story on Instagram, where he has more than 1.3 million followers. “That’s a lie, really. People are saying that they were eating bats and snakes and the poison mixed. What b*llshit is that? Do you believe that? I don’t.’
