ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) on Friday clarified there is no virus found in mobile phones anywhere in the country, causing damage to human body.


It was widely rumoured in some parts of the country that a call from particular numbers can cause loss or damage to the human body, but on inquiry no such effects were found, said a Spokesman of PTA while commenting on some news reports published in a section of press.

He said technically there is no computer software virus which affects human health.

The computer viruses are software programmes that affect computer software or operating systems and do not harm any living being.

Further, the mobile handsets are built on specific standards across the world, keeping in view the safety of human health.

The Spokesman has asked the mobile phone users not to believe in such rumours
