Britain's new HMS Queen Elizabeth is the very first 5G (5th generation wireless) NATO aircraft carrier, packed with military communications equipment. The HMS Queen Elizabeth is currently on its first operational deployment, a world tour, and a COVID-19 outbreak has been reported onboard, affecting around 100 sailors. All sailors and crew have had two doses of the Covid shot.
The flagship aircraft carrier set sail on May 22, 2021, leading six Royal Navy ships, a Royal Navy submarine, a U.S. Navy destroyer, and a frigate from the Netherlands on a seven-month, multi-country show of military might.
The illness outbreak among sailors onboard was first reported by the BBC on July 14, 2021.

"An outbreak of Covid-19 has been confirmed on the Royal Navy's flagship, HMS Queen Elizabeth.
The BBC has been told there have been around 100 cases on the aircraft carrier, which is part way through a world tour.
Several other warships in the fleet accompanying it are also affected.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said all crew on the deployment had received two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine and the outbreak was being managed."
This raises questions about the possible links among the new 5G wireless infrastructure, increased radiation/frequency exposures onboard, and the outbreak of illness.
Again, the HMS Queen Elizabeth is the first NATO aircraft
carrier equipped with 5G (5th generation) wireless, and on its first operational deployment, an
outbreak of illness has been reported onboard.

secretary Ben Wallace told BBC Breakfast this morning that the new HMS
Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier will project British power to the
world. Speaking live from Portsmouth, where the new NATO 5th generation
warship will leave for operations next month, he explained how Britain
is delivering on defence capability for NATO. The ship will be packed
with high-end military equipment and be flanked by an array of ships,
submarines and a Royal marines, Dutch and US armed forces presence...
The aircraft carrier, which is NATO’s first 5th generation aircraft carrier, was made in six shipyards across Britain."
We saw one of the first mass outbreaks of illness in early February 2020 onboard a Diamond Princess cruise ship. The Diamond Princess was also newly equipped with 5G wireless.
