    Let me tell you something. 5G signal is just microwaves with smaller wavelength than 4G which means more energy. Thus the worst thing that could happen is to fry you. Which is NOT possible since to do that you need way too much intensity and concentration of the signals to act as a microwave oven in such an open environment. 

    Ignorance is what causes fear.

      For the record, a microwave oven works due to the particular electromagnetic resonance within the calibrated cavity.

    Probably someone saw the word "focused" and thought that a beam of RF will burn your eyes out. These are the same informed people who stick cell phones in their pockets which is probably more dangerous due to the near-field radiation strength.

    For more fun, look up all the dangers with smart electrical meters attached to your home electrical service.

    5G is the internet of "things" from driverless cars to kitchen appliances.

    The tin foil hat groups are hyping "radiation" and "microwave modulation" to to tear down the Information Age.

    The only real threat is hackers and that might be underestimated.

    can you cite a reputable source for this (probably false) information?

    youtube is NOT a reputable source

      YouTube is not a source. The person making or posting the video is the "source".  Could be a crank or a distinguished professor of biochemistry.

    Because they want to get views - and triggering some diffuse fears with a clickbait title is an efficient way to get them.

    As you demonstrate.
