Disinfo: Coronavirus might be the US biological weapon, the US and UK may have developed a vaccine in advance

Summary

The US repeatedly tested biological weapons on their own population. The first biological attack against civil population took place in San Francisco in 1950, the truth about it was revealed in 1976. Some data points out that first coronavirus-infected people, i.e. ‘patients zero’ came to China from Hawaii. Later American soldiers arrived in Wuhan and brought the second wave of the coronavirus outbreak. Furthermore, the coronavirus outbreak began in Italy around a month before it started in Wuhan, followed by the US two weeks after Italy.

The West could not handle the novel coronavirus nor the economic crisis, therefore its societal model is under question. The statements of the US and the UK that they are approaching the creation of the vaccine mean that it had been elaborated by them in advance because the whole process takes at least a year. The beneficiary is the one who will create the vaccine first. If capital can get 300 percent profit there is not a crime at which it will scruple, Karl Marx said.

Disproof

This is a mix of conspiracies about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus aimed to present the novel coronavirus as the US / UK biological weapon. It also promotes the disinformation narrative that the EU / West is collapsing as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

There is no evidence to suggest that the virus is being used as a weapon against other states or that is was fabricated inside laboratories. The US Navy indeed carried out a germ warfare testing program from 1949 to 1969, which included a biological weapon trial in San Francisco in 1950, the latter potentially caused at least one death. The trial's aim was to determine the susceptibility of a big city like San Francisco to a bioweapon attack by terrorists, and at that time the US military thought that Serratia bacteria could not harm humans. This dark chapter in US history does not imply, however, that the novel coronavirus was elaborated by the US.

There are no grounds to believe that the coronavirus infection was brought to China by Hawaii residents or American soldiers as alleged, or that the initial outbreak started in Italy and the US rather than in China. Available scientific research points out that the earliest case of the novel coronavirus originated in mid-November in China, presumably in Wuhan. The first case in Italy was confirmed on January 30, when two Chinese tourists in Rome tested positive for the virus. A week later the third case was confirmed in an Italian man who was repatriated back to Italy from Wuhan.

This Coronavirus comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. The medical Journal “Emerging Microbes & Infections” specifically said there is “No credible evidence supporting claims of the laboratory engineering.”

UK rejects 5G because of coronavirus

The UK rejects entire 5G. Huawei won’t be building technology necessary for 5th generation mobile network because of coronavirus. Borris Johnson stated that the decision followed an unclear and nontransparent situation over coronavirus.

Disproof

Recurring conspiracy theory on coronavirus and 5G.

The UK did not reject the 5G project in its entirety. The discussion is about whether the UK should ban Huawei as 5G vendor because of security concerns, not because of coronavirus. In January, the UK government approved a limited role for Huawei in building the country's new data networks. On top, the UK Government has strongly condemned the rumours about 5G and coronavirus as dangerous nonsense.

‘Miracle of miracles’: children do not get ill and do not die from coronavirus

This virus is a miracle of miracles. Children do not die, do not get ill, do not end up in intensive care. This is confirmed by American statistics, according to which people under 20 years old do not get hospitalised.

Disproof

Disinformation about the coronavirus, which creates a potentially harmful illusion that people under 20 years old do not get affected, at least not severely, by COVID-19.

Even though it is true that infections in individuals under the age of 19 tend to be mild, a report published by the American Center for Disease Control and Prevention on 6 April 2020 states that severe outcomes have also been reported in children, including three deaths. Even in Russia, a report published by Russian Pediatricians Union on 16 April 2020 cites that as of April 12, 10 children were hospitalised with severe respiratory infection from COVID-19.

The global elites want to reduce the excessive numbers of useless eaters

The dark intimations that in “elite” circles there may be an intense interest in reducing the excessive number of useless eaters to a smaller and more docile cohort of helot-like servants are not without empirical basis.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about "secret elites" controlling world leaders.
