Disinfo: The coronavirus will provoke the definite, rapid and irreversibile collapse of globalisation

Summary

The coronavirus will provoke the definite, rapid and irreversibile collapse of globalisation. If the spread of the virus is not contained in one and a half-two months, the entire global order will collapse from one day to another.

Disproof

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 apocalyptic claims about the imminent collapse of global order and the breakdown of globalisation. The COVID-19 pandemic is halting travel and commerce across the globe. Its spread will slow the global economy which is heavily dependent on international production and global supply chains. While the pandemic is a challenge for globalization, it will not bring the end to this long-term process. Globalisation has brought significant benefits for billions of people, and most of the world will not be eager to do away with these benefits and with the free movement of people, goods and capital.

COVID-19, as well as future pandemics, can only be countered by means of international cooperation.  A coordinated, cross-border effort to monitor and treat the disease, and to speedily develop and disseminate a vaccine across national borders, will end the pandemic. Both the COVID-19 epidemic and the resulting economic crisis are global threats. They can be countered effectively only by means of global cooperation.

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.

Disproof

An unfounded conspiracy theory, sharing a recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative about "secret elites" controlling world leaders.

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.

Disproof

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.

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.
