A Bangladeshi blogpost from March 7, 2016 additionally mentioned that the incident occurred in Kushtia.



Alt News was unable to verify the location of the image however it’s at the least 5 years previous. The birds couldn’t have died resulting from ‘5G radiation’ when 5G technology was not even launched. Moreover, this conspiracy principle towards 5G has been debunked a number of occasions in the previous.

Radiation from 5G mobile towers can’t kill birds

Mobile telephones function in the high frequency (HF) range of the electromagnetic spectrum – from 100 kHz (0.1 MHz) to 300 GHz (3 lakh MHz), per the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP). India follows ICNIRP tips and has one of the most stringent standards on EMF radiations. Airtel and Vodafone currently offer 4G in the 1800MHz and 2100MHz bands, whereas Jio makes use of a decrease band of 800 MHz. The 2021 public sale contains band vary until 2,500MHz.

The Department of Telecommunications (DoT) is in talks to open up new spectrum bands for 5G in the 3300-3600 MHz frequency vary. All the above-mentioned frequency ranges are effectively inside the permissible restrict.

An article in the BBC says, “The radio waves involved in 5G and other mobile phone technology sit on the low-frequency end of the electromagnetic spectrum. Less powerful than visible light, they are not strong enough to damage cells – unlike radiation at the higher frequency end of the spectrum which includes the sun’s rays and medical x-rays.”


American fact-checking web site Snopes spoke to Dr Eric van Rongen, a member of the Health Council of The Netherlands and the Chairman of ICNIRP, after the hearsay was viral in the nation. Several hundred birds and sparrows died in The Hague between October 8 and November 3, 2018, which gave beginning to the hearsay. “The only way one could imagine the death of birds as a result of exposure to electromagnetic fields is with very high-level exposure that results in considerable heating…But the levels that are used by mobile telecom antennas are not strong enough for this to happen. There are maybe millions of such antennas around the world and this has never been reported. Even if there would have been 5G exposure, it is very unlikely that that could cause the [bird] mortality,” Dr Rongen knowledgeable.

The conspiracy principle that radiation from mobile towers trigger birds to die was additionally circulating after 2G spectrum allocation.

Birds, nevertheless, are identified to die of collision with communication towers. Migratory birds generally run into tall towers that go as much as the altitudes they journey. The regular crimson mild on prime of towers additionally confuses birds throughout navigation.

The declare that birds in India are dying resulting from 5G trials isn’t backed by proof. The hoax was additionally viral after the launch of the Tamil science fiction film ‘2.0’ in 2018 that confirmed the results of electromagnetic subject radiation on birds. 5G radiation has additionally been blamed for the coronavirus pandemic.
