Chinese scientists fear that the new coronavirus could actually originate from a laboratory 300 metres away from the market in Wuhan, as research on infected bats was carried out in this laboratory.
All the political field has shifted to the right. But those who claim that this is pragmatic conservatism are wrong, this is a lie propagated by so-called mainstream propaganda outlets. It is autocracy under the disguise of force majeure circumstances. Europe has become autocratic, Germany has become absolutely autocratic.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation about Germany and EU. Consistent with earlier pro-Kremlin disinformation claims that COVID-19 is a pretext to gain control over the world's population.
EU Member States have adopted measured to curb the outbreak of COVID-19, that are in line with national laws.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel addressed the nation regarding the measured taken to overcome the COVID-19 outbreak:
"Let me assure you: for someone like myself, for whom freedom of travel and movement were hard-won rights, such restrictions can only be justified when they are absolutely necessary. In a democracy, they should not be enacted lightly – and only ever temporarily. But at the moment they are essential — in order to save human lives."
