Misinformation, Disinformation Abound During COVID-19 Pandemic

Just today, I was in a doctor's office and he was giving me the Chinese bio weapon conspiracy theory — that I've heard from others about how COVID-19 got started. For now I'm going with the original, meat market theory and an early determination that there is a connection to bats.

If you love conspiracy theories, then there is a whole passel of them at Misinformation related to the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic.

I counted about 15 so far. What about aliens using it to reduce the population? What about Warren Buffett profit taking? What about Jeff Bezos eliminating the Chinese competition from Alibaba? Others? Eric Holdeman needed more to blog on!
