Disinfo: Coronavirus pandemic is exaggerated in order to turn countries into fascist hygiene dictatorships

Summary

The coronavirus pandemic is exaggerated in order to turn countries into fascist hygiene dictatorships.

No one is surprised why neither doctors in private practice nor the pneumological and intensive care units of our hospitals continue to report any worrying increase in serious respiratory diseases. No one wonders why throughout Europe, even in Italy and Spain, death rates are not soaring but are actually lower than in previous years. Hardly anyone listens to the well-founded, factual concerns of many doctors and scientists, who are alienated, even horrified, by the corona hype – and if they are, they seem to lack the courage to make a big deal out of what they have heard.

What incompetent, expert, hyperactive governments worldwide are doing with disproportionate protection against epidemics is turning whole countries into prisons, liberal democracies into fascist hygiene dictatorships.

The WHO has long been on the receiving end of the pharmaceutical industry, 85 percent of which is financed through grants from big pharmaceutical companies and related foundations, in particular the Gates Foundation.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about governments and big pharmaceutical companies using coronavirus in order to establish dictatorships and to expand profits. This is part of Russia’s disinformation campaign on coronavirus, well documented by both media and governments. Elements of this campaign were widely reported by Russian and international publications, and by the European External Action Service.

The coronavirus pandemic is not exaggerated. When on 11 March 2020 the WHO declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic, there were more than 118,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in 114 countries. An updated situation report from WHO on the coronavirus pandemic can be found here.

The claim that Gates Foundation has a link with the ”creation” of coronavirus is based on the fact that Bill and Melinda Gates finance some research projects of Pirbright Institute, a centre of excellence in research and surveillance of virus diseases of farm animals and viruses that spread from animals to humans, based in UK. On 24 January 2020, the Pirbright institute posted a press release explaining that the organisation has no link with the new COVID-19.

Liberal democracies collapse because of coronavirus, replaced with military-medical dictatorships

In order to fight the coronavirus pandemic governments around the world, including in Western countries, have been forced to declare a state of emergency. Quarantines and social distancing have been imposed, with severe penalties for violations. Freedom of movement and of assembly have been suppressed, along with political rights and democratic procedures. Total surveillance of the population is being introduced. These measures are formally temporary, but will gradually become permanent. This means the end of liberal democracies and the establishments of dictatorships throughout the world.

A new kind of dictatorship, whose top priority will be to fight  the coronavirus and other pandemics, is emerging: harsh, radical political regimes led by military and medical elites (virologists), perhaps even harsher than Nazi and Soviet concentration camps.

Disproof

No evidence is given to support the article’s claims that  emergency measures introduced to fight the coronavirus pandemic have brought about the collapse of liberal democracies and the establishment of dictatorships.  These claims are consistent with the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign around the coronavirus, implying that the COVID-19 pandemic represents the end of democracy and open societies and will lead to authoritarian takeover.

This case also plays into the idea of "imminent collapse", one of the master narratives used in pro-Kremlin disinformation. It is used to spread demoralisation and self-doubt among target audiences, as well as to sow discord, panic, and diminish trust in national authorities, the EU and international institutions.

There is no coronavirus in India and Africa

Coronavirus will not affect the African continent due to the fact that Africa has a wide variety of mammals that can infect humans, but the population density is lower than in China and there are no means of quickly moving huge masses of people. In India, too, there is no coronavirus, because Indians have immunity against a conspiracy of mass hysteria.

Disproof

Conspiracy theory about the coronavirus.

The first cases of coronavirus on the African continent were recorded in February in Egypt. On 3 April, an outbreak of coronavirus was recorded in Malawi, one of the last African countries which had avoided the infection until that time. As of 13 April, 14,524 confirmed cases of the disease were recorded across the continent.

Coronavirus dies at 26-27 degrees Celsius

Coronavirus does not tolerate hot weather, so experts predict a decrease in cases from April, and its complete eradication by June. Spring heat will overcome the coronavirus. Coronavirus dies if it is exposed to a temperature of 26-27 degrees, so you also need to often drink hot drinks and spend more time in the sun.

Disproof

There is no reliable evidence to support this claim.

One can catch Covіd-19, no matter how sunny or hot the weather is.
