The outbreak of the alleged new coronavirus in China is completely out of control and kills thousands of people every day. People die right on the streets and in the subway. At the moment, 2.8 million are infected and 112 000 are dead.
The US may be deliberately spreading world panic about the coronavirus outbreak, given China’s important influence on the global stage, its technological development and its growing military capabilities. Thanks to the coronavirus, Donald Trump’s government has been able to stop China, something he couldn’t do through tariffs, trade or tech wars. The trade war, Huawei’s blockade, the protests in Hong Kong, 5G, gas pipeline Power of Siberia and NATO’s growing focus on China are among the conflicting points. But curiously, it was a virus which finally achieved the US dearest wish: isolating China.
Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the claim.
This is part of Russian-led disinformation efforts on coronavirus. You can see other examples in our database, such as claims that Bill Gates and George Soros are sponsoring it, that it is a UK, US or NATO creation and Americans have its cure, that it is an artificial disease which specifically targets Chinese DNA, that it was created with economic goals while big pharma companies are spreading panic for their own profits, that it is a biological weapon against Russia and China, that it will wipe out Ukraine’s population in a few days or that it was predicted by Nostradamus and others.
