Disinfo: The COVID-19 outbreak is a pretext by the ruling class to introduce tyranny


There is no certainty that this new coronavirus called COVID-19 is any more dangerous than any other virus in the past, but the ruling class and their minions in the mainstream media and beyond, are screaming at the top of their lungs that this is the scourge of mankind, and that tens of millions of Americans will become infected, and that millions might die. This is being promulgated by government at every level, by so-called national and world health organizations, and by a complicit media that seemingly does as it is told by those holding political power. This is being done regardless of the fact that no one knows much about this so-called virus, knows little or nothing about its true origin, and knows little about its mutations. Also, politicians, claimed authorities, and alleged experts are in the dark as to how particular cultures have been more susceptible than others, and are unwilling to discuss that the probable cause of this is due to a man-made strain created in a bio-weapons lab, even though a preponderance of evidence points in that direction. All possibilities should be discussed. […] Has all this panic been planned? The impending economic collapse caused by the Federal Reserve and its massive money printing is most likely going to be falsely blamed on the coronavirus, so what is the connection? Was this virus created for the purpose of covering up responsibility for an economic meltdown? Was it created to harm the economy of China and Iran? If not, is it being purposely used for these purposes? Is population control due to all these factors mentioned sought by the ruling class, and is this virus the impetus for gaining that control?


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.

Disinfo: Strange coincidence that areas around the 40˚parallell are mostly affected by Coronavirus

It is a strange coincidence that the areas most affected by the Coronavirus are at a latitude of 40°: Wuhan, France, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Japan, Seattle, Washington and New York.


This is another conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about biological weapons and the Lugar Lab in Georgia.

The coronavirus (2019-nCoV) comes from a family of viruses originating in animals that include other viruses such as SARS and MERS. A group of 27 prominent public health scientists, from nine countries, wrote a statement published online by the Lancet, that "strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin", and they “overwhelmingly conclude that this coronavirus originated in wildlife,” just like many other viruses that have recently emerged in humans.

Disinfo: There are reasons to suspect that coronavirus is a US biological weapon

There are more than enough reasons for suspicions that the coronavirus is a US biological weapon. The time and place are too well-chosen to be a coincidence.


Conspiracy theory about the 2019-nCoV coronavirus, based on recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about biological weapons. The virus "2019-nCoV” comes from a family of viruses that include the common cold and viruses such as SARS and MERS. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed artificially as a weapon of mass destruction. There are numerous similar disinformation cases about coronavirus claiming that this virus is a US provocation against China, Coronavirus is a tool to weaken the Chinese economy, Coronavirus is an attempt by the Anglo-Saxons to control China.

Disinfo: The US power elite is using the coronavirus as a biological weapon in order to reduce the world’s population

The coronavirus is a US biological weapon. Both the beneficiaries of biological weapons (financial speculators) and the managers of such weapons are in the US. The US elite possesses a complete arsenal of biological weapons. The use of these weapons is an aspect of US hybrid warfare against economic sectors that the Americans do not control. The US elite itself is safe from this virus. At the same time, it is armed not only with information technology, but also with biological weapons and with an enormous arsenal to manipulate International financial markets. Primitive Malthusian ideas prevail among the US élite: the idea that the planet cannot survive with such a high population is constantly repeated. People of the “yellow race” are victims of the virus (China, Japan, Korea). In Europe, the victims are mostly the elderly, that is, people with reduced immunity, who are traditionally viewed as “dead weight” by the US elites’ money-dominated ideology.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence is presented to support the article’s claims. Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the 2019-nCoV 2019-nCoV coronavirus, that claims the virus was created by the US as a biological weapon, as well as recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the secret elites, “globalist elites” and “shadow governments” that manipulate global politics, economics and finance, robbing nations of their sovereignty and identity, crushing economies and threatening traditional values. The current coronavirus (2019-nCoV) comes from a family of viruses 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 with new cases being reported in the Asian-Pacific region a well as Europe, North America and the Middle East. The World Health Organisation is working with Chinese authorities and global experts to learn more about the virus. There is no evidence to suggest it was developed or disseminated artificially. Read similar disinformation cases claiming that the US is behind the spread of Coronavirus, that the US military might have released the coronavirus to challenge China and that coronavirus is a new US biological weapon against China.
