Disinfo: The coronavirus outbreak is a magnificent example of global brainwashing


The wicked social control experiment using virus as the pretext for further enslavement is performing magnificently by implanting a sense of helplessness, dependence, and blind conformism. It should be noted that the favorable atmosphere enabling Them (whoever they are) to accomplish just that was contrived by the controlled and unscrupulous media in under a month of intense, coordinated, global brainwashing.


An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about "secret elites" controlling world leaders. See related pro-Kremlin disinformation cases about the coronavirus.

Cases in the EUvsDisinfo database focus on messages in the international information space that are identified as providing a partial, distorted, or false depiction of reality and spread key pro-Kremlin messages. This does not necessarily imply, however, that a given outlet is linked to the Kremlin or editorially pro-Kremlin, or that it has intentionally sought to disinform. EUvsDisinfo publications do not represent an official EU position, as the information and opinions expressed are based on media reporting and analysis of the East Stratcom Task Force.

Coronavirus is a biological weapon created artificially

Coronavirus was created artificially and is a biological weapon. Researchers from India’s Jawaharlal Nehru University released a study, according to which COVID-19 contained HIV “insertions” and showed signs of being created in a lab. Since it is a new virus, Indian scientists concluded that the United States created COVID-19 to strike an economic blow against China.


Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV also known as coronavirus, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about biological weapons. There is no evidence that the novel coronavirus was bioengineered and genetic observations indicate that it came from an animal. Since the paper lacked substantiation, the authors soon voluntarily withdrew it. Factcheck.org has verified the information about the study. The paper by Indian scientists, which was posted on the website bioRxiv on January 31, claimed to have identified very short “insertions” in the virus’ protein sequence that had an “uncanny similarity” to HIV. Numerous scientists, however, almost immediately pointed out to the flaws in the analysis, noting that the sequences are so short, they match a bevy of other organisms and there is no reason to conclude they derive from HIV. Foreign Affairs also writes about groundless conspiracy theories and false findings that were not confirmed by the study conducted in India.

Coronavirus epidemic is provoking the collapse of globalisation and of the open society

The coronavirus epidemic is the decisive moment in the collapse of globalisation and in the destruction of the unipolar world. The pandemic has buried globalisation, the open society, and the global capitalist system. The virus has destroyed the major myths underpinning globalisation, such as the myths claiming that open borders and interdependence among countries are beneficial, that international organisations are capable of dealing with emergency situations, that the global economy can cope with grave challenges. The coronavirus pandemic is a turning point in world history. As a result of the pandemic, the world order is crumbling, liberalism and its total ideological domination are coming to an end, and a multipolar world is coming into being. The coronavirus has brought death, suffering, horror, panic, pain but it is also ushering in the future.


Emerging pro-Kremlin narrative claiming that the coronavirus pandemic will soon lead to the breakdown of globalisation and the collapse of the global economic system. The narrative of “imminent collapse” is one of the core instruments of pro-Kremlin disinformation outlets, 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. The article provides no evidence to support its sweeping, apocalyptic claims. The Covid-19 pandemic - which is closing borders, severely restricting travel and disrupting supply chains - will provoke a global recession, but it will not be able to stop the globalising trend of recent decades. Globalisation has brought significant benefits for billions of people, and most of the world will not be eager to do away with easy travel and the free movement of people, goods and capital. Covid-19 will likely bring about a new phase in globalisation, but not its breakdown. The coronavirus crisis, as well as future pandemics, can be effectively brought under control only by deepening transnational cooperation. Such collaboration is already underway in the scientific and medical community, which is accelerating its efforts to understand the virus and discover a cure. While short-term quarantine is essential to stop epidemics, nationalist isolationism will lead to economic collapse without offering any real protection against infectious diseases. Read here a previous case claiming that the coronavirus represents the end of globalisation.

Areas most affected by coronavirus are at the 40 degrees north latitude

Isn’t it strange that the areas most affected by the coronavirus are at the same latitude? About 40 degrees north latitude. Is it a coincidence or some mysterious artificial influence?


Conspiracy theory with no evidence given. One of many recurring disinformation narratives about the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus. On March 12, Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, chairperson and managing director of Biocon tweeted a viral image (archive link). Several users have shared on Twitter and Facebook. The viral claim lists four cities – Wuhan, Seattle, Washington and New York along with five countries – France, Italy, Iran, South Korea and Japan while claiming that “all worst affected coronavirus [Covid 19] cases are along the same Latitude 40°.” It is important to keep in mind that, according to the US Geological Survey, at 38 degrees north latitude one degree of latitude is around 69 miles (111 kilometres). Therefore, large countries cannot be represented by a single latitude. Read further debunking here and here. Apart from that, coronavirus has already been detected in more than 180 countries all over the world.
