DISINFO: COVID-19 epidemic is fake, it is manufactured by media
We do not have a coronavirus epidemic. It does not exist anywhere in the world. This is a fake produced by WHO the fourth time in the last 20 years. The first fake epidemic was with SARS, which was also caused by the coronavirus. The second fake pandemic was bird flu. The third fake pandemic was swine flu. Now we are dealing with the fourth fake pandemic, which has no justification from a medical point of view. This is a media epidemic.
An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about the COVID-19 outbreak. It also aims to discredit actions taken by the WHO and individual countries to stop the spread of the new disease. COVID-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation on 11 March, acknowledging that the virus had become a global phenomenon. Before that date, the situation was being described as an epidemic, illustrating that the virus had already spread to many people, and many communities, at the same time. As of 14 April, the total number of COVID-19 cases had passed 1.7 million. COVID-19 comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. It was first reported in the Chinese city of Wuhan in central China and has been rapidly spreading across the world, with cases being reported in over 190 countries, territories and areas. The number of COVID-19 global deaths has now passed 90,000. See similar disinformation narrative alleging that the COVID-19 crisis is manufactured by media.
