Disinfo: Bill Gates vaccination in India leaves 490,000 children paralysed

Summary

Indian doctors blame the Gates vaccination campaign for a devastating non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) epidemic that paralysed 490,000 children beyond expected rates between 2000 and 2017.

In 2017, the Indian government rolled back Gates’ vaccine regime and asked Gates and his vaccine policies to leave India. NPAFP rates dropped precipitously.

Disproof

Recurring disinfo narrative about Bill Gates' interest in reducing global population through vaccination. See a similar case claiming that Bill Gates generated the coronavirus outbreak by founding both the creation of the virus and the vaccine.

No evidence is given to support the claims. The Gates Foundation has supported a polio eradication programme in India through immunisation. The claim made in the article was denied by the Gates Foundation in an email sent to the Poynter Institute in the USA.

In March 2014 the World Health Organisation declared Southest Asia, including India, a polio-free region, due to the vaccination. In an explicative note, WHO says it is possible to contract polio from a vaccine, but it is extremely rare, 1 in 2.7 million oral doses could result in vaccine-associated paralytic polio. As for India, between 2000 and 2017, there were 17 cases of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (cVDPV cases) – 15 cases in 2009 and 2 cases in 2010, as shown in a WHO data table.

According to the German Fact-Checking-organisation Correctiv, the number of 496,000 children has no link to vaccine-based polio (VDPV).

"The number 496,000 apparently refers to a study from August 2018, which deals with cases of paralysis without evidence of polio (Nonpolio Acute Flaccid Paralysis, NPAFP). Between 2000 and 2017, this was registered in 640,000 children in India. The scientists note that this figure is 491,000 cases higher than would normally be expected. They speculate whether there might be a correlation with oral polio vaccines, as NPAFP numbers have been decreasing again since 2012 - in parallel with a reduction in vaccinations ("correlation"). The authors ask whether polio vaccination might make people susceptible to other enteroviruses. However, more studies are needed to prove a causal relationship. The number 491,000 cannot simply be attributed to vaccinations."

US tests biological weapons on Ukrainians to further attack Russia

The USA is testing biological weapons on Ukrainians to further attack Russia. Laboratories created in Ukraine are participants in the US Defence project. The fact that they are developing secret biological weapons is confirmed by outbreaks of strange diseases in Ukraine, for example, outbreaks of hemorrhagic pneumonia, cholera, Swine Flu A (H1N1) pdm09, measles.

Disproof

This is another conspiracy theory about Western belligerence towards Russia not confirmed by facts. Viral pneumonia and other infectious diseases are not the result of the joint research work of the USA and Ukraine. Read a similar case that Coronavirus was created by Americans in Ukrainian laboratories.

Viral pneumonia and the aggressive H1N1 influenza strain that triggered a worldwide epidemic in 2009 affected not only Ukrainians: once every few years, worldwide outbreaks of infectious diseases are recorded, as viruses can mutate. Cholera is a severe intestinal infection that usually occurs in contaminated waters, which is what triggered several cases of cholera outbreaks in Ukraine. Outbreaks of cholera are constantly recorded in different parts of the world and have nothing to do with the activities of “biological laboratories”, as well as outbreaks of measles or hepatitis, which can be prevented by standard immunisation. At the end of 2019, Ukraine entered the top five countries with the highest incidence of measles. Specialists from the World Health Organisation concluded that measles quickly spread to countries like Ukraine due to the systematic omission of vaccination of local children.

Zelenskyу introduces tax on war and coronavirus in Ukraine

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyу intends to introduce a war tax in the country. Currently, Ukrainian deputies are developing bills on the introduction of taxes on the war and even the coronavirus.

Disproof

Another narrative about the war in Ukraine.

In Ukraine, the so-called "war tax" already exists. The military levy in Ukraine was introduced for additional financing of the Armed Forces in 2014. This decision became logical in the context of the Kremlin’s aggressive policy towards Ukraine and also taking into account the fact that after the reign of Viktor Yanukovych who fled to Russia, the Ukrainian budget was devastated and the state had a catastrophic lack of funds. The military levy is positioned as temporary and was extended until the completion of the reform of the Armed Forces. Tax is levied on taxpayer's income in the amount of 1.5%. The exception is pensions and other social benefits.

The MH17 disaster was planned by Ukrainian, American, and Dutch intelligence agencies

The crash of flight MH17 is an operation planned by American, Dutch, and Ukrainian special services.

The intelligence agencies of the United States, Ukraine, and the Netherlands, acting together, have prepared several options for the destruction of the aircraft. This explains why the two fighters appeared in the sky at the time of the crash. Besides, a large number of batteries that might ignite could be in the bow of the plane. And this, in turn, indicates the possibility of an explosion.

They wanted the Boeing to fall on the territory controlled by the Donetsk People’s Republic in order to complicate a real investigation of this incident.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory attempting to undermine the Joint International Investigation of the downing of the flight MH17.

A special team, known as the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), was established to conduct the criminal investigation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17. The JIT comprises officials from the Dutch Public Prosecution Service and the Dutch police, along with police and criminal justice authorities from Australia, Belgium, Malaysia and Ukraine.
