Disinfo: China coronavirus was predicted by Nostradamus

Summary

A deciphered prediction of Nostradamus about a “great plague” is linked to the deadly China coronavirus.

Nostradamus spoke of a “great plague” that will rage in a “sea city”. In the same text, a certain “noble lady” is mentioned, which the experts also associate with the events in China. According to experts, we are talking about Hong Kong, which has become one of the center of the disease, and the former head of the Ministry of Health of China, who was called on to fight the disease.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the China coronavirus.

In response to the outbreak of the corona virus the Chinese authorities have placed more than a dozen cities under quarantine. The World Health Organisation is working with Chinese authorities and global experts to learn more about the virus. The virus "2019-nCoV” comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold, and viruses such as SARS and MERS. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed artificially as a weapon of mass destruction.

“Thunberg kids” are twisting facts: man has nothing to do with climate change

According to experts, “Thunberg kids” are twisting facts: global warming exists, but it is natural and man has nothing to do with it.

There is an enormous PR machine behind Greta. She spreads nonsense about the climate change, her age permits to do that, but she will wake up one day 20-30 years later and understand that the adults destroyed her life.

Disproof

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about climate change combined with a repeated attack on climate activist Greta Thunberg. 

The existence of anthropogenic climate change is a matter of scientific consensus. No other environmental threat has been subjected to as much scientific research. The UN has assembled thousands of scientists to compile and review the latest science and contribute to the publication of five reports since 1990 that have consistently made the consensus deeper and the warnings more urgent. Preventing the dangerous consequences of climate change is a key priority for the EU. 

Poland and Nazi Germany planned a military campaign against the Soviet Union and the final solution

Nobody was shocked when the German historian Rolf-Dieter Müller, in his book “The Enemy in the East. Hitler’s Secret Plans to Invade the Soviet Union”, wrote that the Poles, who courted Hitler’s favour, jointly planned a military campaign against the Soviet Union with Nazi Germany, as well as the final solution to the “Jewish question”.   

Disproof

Recurring narrative of an ongoing pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign targeting Poland. This narrative aims at vilifying Poland by accusing it of being an ally and partner of Nazi Germany.

In his book The Enemy in the East. Hitler’s Secret Plans to Invade the Soviet Union”, German military historian, Rolf-Dieter Müller, does not argue that Poland and Nazi Germany jointly planned a military campaign against the Soviet Union, nor does he argue that the two countries cooperated in planning the “final solution” to the “Jewish question”.

The Chinese coronavirus is a US provocation

The deadly new coronavirus found in China is a US provocation. The Americans were afraid that they will not be able to overtake China economically.

Such provocations are not happening the first time, it happened before with the bird flu and British beef, which “someone did not like”.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory. This is a pro-Kremlin narrative about the China coronavirus.

In response to the outbreak of the corona virus the Chinese authorities have placed more than a dozen cities under quarantine.
