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


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.


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.

Anglo-Saxon owners behind La Stampa's attack on Russian doctors

There is a rather simple answer to why La Stampa decided to engage in dirty accusations against the Russian medics in Italy. The paper is long owned by Fiat, but today, a hundred percent of La Stampa stock belongs to the American auto-corporation Chrysler. The chairman of the board of Fiat is New York resident John Elkann and the CEO is Michael Manley from the county Kent in England. Anglo-American capital squeezed out all Italians already in 2014, taking control over La Stampa. Behind the Italian newspaper’s provocative attacks on Russian doctors stand its Anglo-Saxon owners.


A false statement on the ownership structure of La Stampa. La Stampa is owned by the Italian holding GEDI group; a public company, registered on the Milan Stock Exchange. The Agnelli-family, founders of the FIAT automotive corporation and minority shareholders in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has large share in GEDI. The editorial independence of La Stampa is guaranteed in the paper's charter.

US brought ISIS when Al Qaeda went outside the script

[The United States] created ISIS as an alternative to the old Al Qaeda after draining it and taking back the role assigned to it, and dismissing it from service when the later veered the script. There isn’t a single time that America interfered in a country without tampering with it, tearing it apart, and provoking wars and strife.


No evidence is given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative claiming that the US is supporting or working together with ISIS in the Middle East. This message is part of a broader conspiracy theory alleging that the United States has created and supported many jihadi terrorist organisations and controls global terrorism. In reality, the US is committed to fighting terrorist organisations, such as Daesh and Al-Qaeda. Ever since the September 11th terrorist attacks, the US and its allies have been engaged in an military and intelligence efforts to counter Al Qaeda, ISIS and other radical Islamist terrorist groups around the world. Read here similar cases claiming that ISIS has been supported by US, British, French and Israeli intelligence services in order to demolish Syria and that Al Baghdadi was an American product.

This Canadian report indicts the US with spreading Coronavirus

The United States may inadvertently stand behind the emergence of the COVID-19 virus in the Chinese city of Wuhan.

A report published by Canada’s GlobalResearch.ca made clear that last summer, the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention ordered the closure of a major military biological laboratory at Fort Detrick, Maryland, in anticipation of possible leaks.

Five of the Americans participating in the Military World Games competitions hosted by Wuhan last October were infected with an undefined infection.


Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus. There is no evidence to suggest that thevirus is being used as a weapon against other states or that is has been fabricated inside laboratories. The narratives also resemble a recurring conspiracy theory about the Lugar Lab in Georgia.

The coronavirus comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. The expert scientific consensus holds that the coronavirus has natural origins; there is no credible evidence supporting claims of laboratory engineering.
