While the region of Brussels has decided not to deploy the 5G in 2020 for lack of satisfactory control of the levels of emission of the antennas, a group of French mps of The Republicans calling for a commission of inquiry on the health effects of this technology.
The 5G will not happen in Brussels at the end of 2020. Céline Fremault, who occupies a position equivalent to that of our regional advisors for Brussels, said pushing back the completion of the legislative process needed for the deployment of 5G in the belgian capital. And to argue in an article published in the belgian newspaper The Echo : “The people of Brussels are not of the laboratory mouse “. As for Céline Fremault, the conditions are not met to launch this technology. “It is clear that it is unthinkable for me to allow for the arrival of this technology if I can’t ensure the observance of the norms protecting the citizens. 5G or not. The people of Brussels are not of the laboratory mouse that I can sell health at price for profit. We can not leave it to hover in doubt.“
The 5G braked for reasons of legislative and non-motif health
However, this is not so much for health reasons as for reasons of legislative and technical that the 5G will not be deployed in Brussels this year. In an article of Check News Release, we learn that the blockage comes from the fact that, for the time being, the legal framework of emission current is limited to 6 volts/metre. However, to allow for the arrival of the 5G, that these standards should be enhanced between 14.5 v/m and 41 v/m, according to the recommendations of the belgian Institute for postal services and telecommunications.
According to the cabinet of Céline Fremault, who was interviewed by Check News, the legislative process to allow the standard to be raised is well underway. But it is blocked for technical reasons, explains the entourage of the minister of the government of the Brussels-Capital Region in charge of Housing, Quality of Life, Environment and Energy, “ there is currently no methodology to effectively measure the radiation of these antennas “. The authorities prefer to wait until more field data before proceeding with the legislative process that will allow the deployment of the 5G in Brussels. For Céline Fremault, the problem is not health-related, all the advice that it has collected regarding the question being, “she says,” positive‘s “. But it is well linked to the difficulty, for the moment, to control the actual emissions, and therefore the application of the future standard of power.
Soon a survey in France on the health effects of the 5G ?
In France, the deployment of 5G continues to ask questions : thirty of the parliamentary Republicans have demanded, Monday, may 11, the creation of a commission of inquiry to better understand the health effects of 5G, the deployment of which, on a large scale is in principle scheduled for 2021. These elected officials are not opposed to the 5G, that they feel they can ” make it possible to accelerate dramatically the development of industrial uses at the intersection of technologies of artificial intelligence and the hyper-connectivity “. However, they believe it is necessary to collect and analyze a maximum of data on its potential risks. They refer in particular, on a report of the COVES that, in January 2020, referred to a lack of scientific data on the consequences for human health of some of the frequencies used by the 5G.
The necessary multiplication of antennas for the deployment of the 5G is one of the problems raised by critics of this new standard. According to the scientific Aurélien Barrau, the impact of this deployment will be catastrophic for the environment.
