Former world champion Amir Khan has put together a series of videos that are raising a lot of eyebrows.

According to Khan, he believes the COVID-19 coronavirus did not originate in and China and the entire pandemic could be part of some conspiracy to test the new 5G communication networks and to “get rid of a lot of us.”

Khan's conspiracy theory, which many are calling baseless, is coming down as the 5G broadband network is rolling out in several countries across the world.

Khan had posted the video to social media, which quickly began to circulate.

“I don’t think it’s coming from China,” Khan said. “That’s a lie, really. People are saying that they were eating bats and snakes and the poison mixed. What bullsh-t is that? Do you believe that? I don’t.

“Coronavirus this, coronavirus that – you’re probably getting bored of it, as I am. Do you not think it’s anything to do with that 5G in these towers that are going up? It’s a man-made thing. It’s been put there for a reason – while they test 5G. It might be for population control – get rid of a lot of us, especially when they say that it harms old people. Look at these towers at night time that have been put up, then telling people not to go out. I bet they’re going to put one of those towers outside my house. Who is behind all this? I hope it doesn’t start a war or anything.

“Every time 3G, 4G, 5G happens, there’s always a pattern. Back in 2003, when 3G was released to the world, [there was a] SARS outbreak. Then in 2009, was 4G was introduced, everyone seemed to have this big outbreak of swine flu. 2020, guys – 5G, coronavirus breakout.”

He admits that some people may believe he's nuts after watching his recent videos.

“[They will say] that Amir Khan has lost his head," Khan said. “They’ll probably try to section me off, saying ‘this guy has taken too many punches to the head.’"

At the same time, Khan fully supports the current efforts by the UK, urging their citizens to comply with social distancing requirements and to take numerous other precautions to avoid COVID-19 infection. He also offered his large wedding complex to the National Health Service (NHS), in order to house sick patients.
