This is all part of the HOAX https://t.co/wy46uFhrVZ— Hunter (@TheCptBlackPill) April 17, 2020
1,081 sailors aboard the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle have tested positive for coronavirus; hundreds more are still waiting for their results https://t.co/ACTvkkQ0g2— BNO Newsroom (@BNODesk) April 17, 2020
The single dumbest talking point from the conspiracy theorists that I have heard is that the coronavirus pandemic is somehow all about Donald Trump and the 2020 election.
“Countries around the world are implementing measures to slow the spread of the coronavirus, from national quarantines to school closures.
More than a third of the planet’s population is under some form of restriction.
The World Health Organization, which has officially declared the outbreak a pandemic, has called on “all countries to continue efforts that have been effective in limiting the number of cases and slowing the spread of the virus.”
While “lockdown” isn’t a technical term used by public-health officials, it can refer to anything from mandatory geographic quarantines to non-mandatory recommendations to stay at home, closures of certain types of businesses, or bans on events and gatherings, Lindsay Wiley, a health law professor at the Washington College of Law, told Vox. …”
Here is a short list of countries that have gone into full or partial lockdowns or have restricted travel by reasserting their borders:
- United States
- South Africa
- New Zealand
- Saudi Arabia
- The UK
- El Salvador
- Czech Republic
- The Maldives
- North Korea
It’s not just you.
Please tell me how this is a “HOAX.”
The list of countries that have taken dramatic actions to slow the virus is even longer. Vietnam, Iran, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Mongolia are not on this list. Japan declared a nationwide state of emergency yesterday. Jair Bolsonaro is struggling with the virus in Brazil where the epidemic is roiling national politics. The virus has humbled all 5 permanent members of the U.N. Security Council.
Why do so many people believe in convoluted conspiracy theories? It is because they don’t believe that God or nature is capable of doing this. Human beings must be in control
