The Most Insane Coronavirus Myths
1 Coronavirus Was Manufactured By the Chinese Government
Since the coronavirus started in China, people began making all sorts of outlandish claims about the origins of the disease. American senator Tom Cotton really kicked this theory into the mainstream when he appeared on Fox News and posited the idea that the coronavirus came from a biochemical lab in Wuhan, China.
The Senator admitted that there was no evidence to back up his claim, but also encouraged officials to investigate. If there’s no evidence, why would they investigate? More importantly, this idea has been repeatedly dismissed by scientists studying the virus.
