The Financial Times has just ran an article with the headlines, “Switzerland halts rollout of 5G over health concerns.”

  • “Switzerland, one of the world’s leaders in the rollout of 5G mobile technology, has placed an indefinite moratorium on the use of its new network because of health concerns.”
  • “The Swiss Medical Association has advised caution on 5G, arguing that the most stringent legal principles should be applied because of unanswered questions about the technology’s potential to cause damage to the nervous system, or even cancers. “

Silicon Republic quoted Switzerland’s environmental agency, Das Bundesamt für Umwelt (BAFU), the health agency focused on the issue stating said, “it would not be willing to allow the use of 5G without further testing for the potential impact of radiation.” The BAFU website states , “because there are various well-supported observations from research that there are other effects than thermal effects, the NISV also sets precautionary values. ” 

No major secondary insurer will cover health damages from 5G, classified as “high risk” a technology which insurance authority Swiss Re has depicted as “off the leash.’ 

Over 150 cities in Italy have passed resolutions to halt 5G until safety is assured. Learn more about what governments are doing to halt 5G here.
