Disinfo: Sooner or later, Americans will have to choose between freedom or a vaccine with a microchip

Summary

In order to return to normality, a possible requirement, besides social distancing, will be mandatory participation in a global vaccination programme, underwritten by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Big Pharma and many other supposed “philanthropists”. Efforts to introduce a vaccine containing nanotechnology to “mark” and keep those injected under surveillance received a big boost, with Bill Gates at its head.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with no evidence provided to support the claim. This is a mix of a long-established conspiracy theory about a Shadow Government of all-powerful groups ruling the world (a formulation that aims to question the legitimacy of democracy and Western institutions) with bogus narratives against billionaire Bill Gates and attacking vaccination programmes. They also fit into an ongoing disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Some elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications and by the European External Action Service. EUvsDisinfo database has a long set of Kremlin-linked disinformation cases on the Shadow Government and coronavirus, such as claims that Covid-19 vaccines will lead to Full Spectrum Dominance by the Deep Dark State; that vaccine production is part of the agenda for a New World Order; that the coronavirus pandemic is being exaggerated in order to turn countries into fascist hygiene dictatorships; that the Covid-19 outbreak is not about a virus but about power; or that those who survive the pandemic will be poisoned this way for population reduction purposes.

The Coronavirus being bioengineered makes sense

The possibility of the Coronavirus being bioengineered in a Chinese laboratory makes sense.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus. There is no evidence to suggest that the virus has been fabricated inside laboratories.

The coronavirus comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS.The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no credible evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering.

HIV was found in the Coronavirus, hence it was engineered

The Coronavirus was created inside a laboratory, especially as HIV particles (AIDS) were found inside it.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory about the novel coronavirus. There is no evidence to suggest that the virus was fabricated inside laboratories. The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no credible evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering.

The claim that the COVID-19 contains artificially-introduced insertions from the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), thereby proving it is man-made, is based on a preprint of a research study uploaded to bioRXiV on 2 February 2020.

Chinese paper: Coronavirus came out of Wuhan lab

Two Chinese biologists concluded that the source of the virus (coronavirus) was the scientific laboratories located in Wuhan, 280 metres from the seafood market.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus.There is no evidence to suggest that the virus has been fabricated inside laboratories. The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering. The study that was made by Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao entitled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus” as part of the “circumstantial evidence that supports the possibility that a lab release was involved”. But later on YANZHONG HUANG, a Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations, who directs the Global Health Governance Roundtable said “the paper was later removed from ResearchGate, a commercial social networking site for scientists and researchers to share papers”,..., “Thus far, no scientists have confirmed or refuted the paper’s findings”. Xiao even told the Wall Street Journal in an email from 26 February that he had withdrawn his paper: “The speculation about the possible origins in the post was based on published papers and media, and was not supported by direct proofs." After paper received media attention in the West, Chinese authorities and its state media firmly denied that there had been any lab accident. You can see other examples of this narrative in our database, such as claims thatBill Gates andGeorge Soros are sponsoring the coronavirus, that it is aUK,US orNATO creation and that the Americans haveits cure, that it isan artificial disease which specificallytargets Chinese DNA, that it was createdwith economic goals whilebig pharma companies are spreading panic for their own profit, that it is a biological weaponagainst Russia and China, that it willwipe out Ukraine’s population in a few days or that it was predicted byNostradamus and others.
