Twitter users react to Pastor Chris's '5G conspiracy theory'

Since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus in China last year December, there have been conspiracy theory videos linking symptoms of the pandemic to 5G networks.

There are claims 5G suppresses the immune system and the virus is somehow using the network's radio waves to communicate and pick victims, accelerating its spread.

Founder and president of LoveWorld Incorporated, also known as Christ Embassy, Pastor Chris Oyakhiloma appeared in a video where he supported the conspiracy theory.

Even though there have been a lot of criticisms directed at the man of God, an army of tweeps are declaring support for the preacher with a hashtag #iStandWithPastorChris.

With thousands of tweets made with the hashtag, majority of the tweeps are either Christian faithfuls who feel the current happenings fall in line with the bibles prediction of events preceding the end time, while others think it all plays into a bigger picture of a new world order.

Either ways, the argument on the true origin of the novel coronavirus which is claiming several lives across the world is a question that is yet to receive a definite answer and will probably see more theories with more arguments being made for or against them.
