Crimes Related to 5G and COVID-19
There is a conspiracy theory that claims 5G is connected to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The theory that 5G is causing illness, namely COVID-19 has resulted in many 5G communication towers mainly across Europe but as far as Australia are being vandalised or torched.
The United States and Mexico entered a joint initiative March 21 restricting non-essential travel along the U.S – Mexico land border. Mexico has implemented temperature screening measures at some of its airports and land border ports of entry. There are no mandatory quarantine policies currently in effect in Mexico for confirmed or suspected cases. The Mexican government encourages people experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, to stay at home for 14 days. On April 3, Mexican Tourism and Health officials instructed hotels to cancel new and existing reservations and close for non-essential business.
