Disinfo: The COVID-19 outbreak stinks of a secret germ warfare 007 super-virus


The whole mess stinks of a genetically engineered, secret germ warfare 007 placed super-virus designed to let those with money take over what’s left of the world. Maybe the reshaping of the world is the crescendo of Donald Trump’s purpose in the first place?


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

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.

US preparing a military invasion of Mexico

The recent operation in the United States against ‘el Mencho’, the leader of the Jalisco New Generation Cartel, exposes the likelihood of a US military invasion in Mexico, today destabilised on several fronts by George Soros. In the US, there are high military and civilian echelons, since long ago, invasion plans for Mexico, not to talk of ‘balkanisation’ processes promoted by several think tanks, in a country where megaspeculator George Soros already left his fingerprints.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support any of the multiple claims.

This is part of several recurrent Russian disinformation narratives about constant US plots to undermine Latin American governments, especially Mexico, and also accusing billionaire George Soros of destabilising actions. You can see many examples in our database, such as alleged plans to designate drug cartels as terrorist organisations as a cover for military control of Mexico, the next country in Washington’s destabilisation list after Bolivia; US supposed attempts to promote secession of rich Mexican northern regions; Soros’ previous efforts to stir up protests in Mexico; or the existence of an alleged 'Operation Condor for the XXIst century'.

The coronavirus is a US biological weapon to reduce the planet’s population

Americans have a full arsenal of biological weapons. And this manifestation of the US hybrid warfare against the economic sectors they do not control is perfectly understandable and logical.

Primitive Malthusian ideas still prevail there, one can constantly hear that there are too many humanity, that the planet, they say, cannot survive so many people, and so on. Therefore, they die today, you look, mostly people of the yellow race, so to speak. This is China, Korea, Japan. Among Europeans, such a tragic fate befell people with reduced immunity, the elderly, who are traditionally regarded as ballast for this ideology of the “golden billion”.

The Italian government might fuel the hysteria to gain benefits from EU funding

These numbers [of COVID-19 cases in Italy] cause reasonable questions because there are not so much explanations of the observed crisis in Europe. So, the entire Italian government is disfunctional and demonstrates a criminal negligence, or the available statistics exaggerates the scale of crisis. If one supposes that the Italian government is interested in fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals (to support the global campaign in the field or gain tactical economic benefits as additional funding from the EU), it may look that authorities count any virus infection death or even deaths caused some other reasons as coronavirus-caused deaths.


Claiming that something or someone is or has failed is a common disinformation tactic in the pro-Kremlin media. Examples of such claimed failures include Hitler was a failed American experiment; Ukraine has failed as a political nation; the EU has failed; Robert Mueller failed.

As for the criminal negligence of the Italian government, there is no proof. The same goes for the "fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals".
