Background and Aim: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) public health policy has focused on the
severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus and its effects on human health
while environmental factors have been largely ignored. In considering the epidemiological triad
(agent-host-environment) applicable to all disease, we investigated a possible environmental factor
in the COVID-19 pandemic: ambient radiofrequency radiation from wireless communication systems
including microwaves and millimeter waves. SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused the COVID-19
pandemic, surfaced in Wuhan, China shortly after the implementation of city-wide (fifth generation
(5G) of wireless communications radiation (WCR)), and rapidly spread globally, initially demonstrating
a statistical correlation to international communities with recently established 5G networks. In this
study, we examined the peer-reviewed scientific literature on the detrimental bioeffects of WCR and
identified several mechanisms by which WCR may have contributed to the COVID-19 pandemic as
a toxic environmental cofactor. By crossing boundaries between the disciplines of biophysics and
pathophysiology, we present evidence that WCR may: (1) cause morphologic changes in erythrocytes
including echinocyte and rouleaux formation that can contribute to hypercoagulation; (2) impair
microcirculation and reduce erythrocyte and hemoglobin levels exacerbating hypoxia; (3) amplify
immune system dysfunction, including immunosuppression, autoimmunity, and hyperinflammation;
(4) increase cellular oxidative stress and the production of free radicals resulting in vascular injury
and organ damage; (5) increase intracellular Ca2+ essential for viral entry, replication, and release,
in addition to promoting pro-inflammatory pathways; and (6) worsen heart arrhythmias and cardiac
Relevance for Patients: In short, WCR has become a ubiquitous environmental stressor that we
propose may have contributed to adverse health outcomes of patients infected with SARS-CoV-2
and increased the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, we recommend that all people,
particularly those suffering from SARS-CoV-2 infection, reduce their exposure to WCR as much as
reasonably achievable until further research better clarifies the systemic health effects associated with
chronic WCR exposure.
