Disinfo: Coronavirus is psychological warfare against enemies like China and Iran

Summary

The coronavirus may be a tool in the silent competition of the big powers. After the Vietnam war, warmongering Western elites learnt that very often that the answer is not conventional war, much less when you’re trying to hit strategic enemies like China or Iran, who have capabilities for a nuclear response or high resistance. In this case, you take a different route. An interesting fact is that coronavirus is not a pandemic aiming to kill a lot of people, but to achieve other effects such as social and economic re-engineering, without dropping a single bomb. When the mortality rate is inversely proportional to the panic caused, it is legitimate to think that we are dealing not with a biological weapon but with a sophisticated tool at the service of psychological warfare. The final project is the destruction of nation states.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, with zero evidence presented to support any of the multiple claims. This is part of Russia’s disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments, whose elements were widely reported by Russian and international publications.

The EUvsDisinfo database has more than 110 Kremlin-linked disinformation cases on this subject, such as claims that Bill Gates and George Soros are sponsoring the coronavirus, that it is a UKUS or NATO creation and the Americans have its cure, that it is an artificial disease which specifically targets Chinese DNA, that it was created with economic goals while big pharma companies are spreading panic for their own profits, that it is a biological weapon against Russia and China, that it will wipe out Ukraine’s population in a few days or that it was predicted by Nostradamus and others.

Sweden declines treatment for coronavirus because virus is safe

Sweden is one of the few countries that has not closed its borders; all educational institutions, cafes, restaurants, and gyms continue to work here. Swedish scientists say coronavirus is safe. There is a known case of a doctor who is infected with the virus, but continues to operate at his workplace in the hospital.

Disproof

An unfounded coronavirus conspiracy theory

As of 23 March 2020, there were 1906 cases of confirmed coronavirus infections in Sweden, and 21 people there have died. The Swedish Public Health Authority's highest priority is to protect the public. It has declared that an ‘extraordinary situation’ exists in Sweden 

Mainstream media ignores the fake news campaign against Russia

No mainstream media outlet is reporting a massive ‘coronavirus’ fake news campaign, which targeted Russia itself. Apparently, this does not fit the narrative. This campaign comes jointly with an increase of activity of various Western-funded anti-government organizations inside Russia.

Disproof

An unfounded claim and a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative presenting all activities of NGOs, media or civil society activists as measures to overthrow the power in post-Soviet states.

Coronavirus got on Earth out of space through a meteorite and spreads through the wind

Over China, on October 11, 2019, a meteorite exploded and released the infectious particles of COVID-19, which now spread through the wind. The meteorite was seen above the city of Wuhan, which is the first epicentre of the disease.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory about the COVID-19.

COVID-19 is of natural origin and has been transmitted to humans from animals, as is the case with other types of coronaviruses according to numerous independent researches. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading across the world.
