COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

Written by Prof Michel Chossudovsky; Originally appeared at Global Research

The media hype and disinformation campaign regarding the spread of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus have created a Worldwide atmosphere of fear and uncertainty following the launching of  a global public health emergency by the WHO on January 30th. 

The fear campaign is ongoing.  Panic and uncertainty. National governments and the WHO are misleading  the public.

“About 84,000 people in at least 56 countries have been infected, and about 2,900 have died” says the New York Times. What they fail to mention is that 98% of those cases of infection are in Mainland China. There are less than 5000 confirmed cases outside China. (WHO, February 28, 2020)

While COVID-19 is a matter of Public Health concern, at the moment, there is no real pandemic outside Mainland China. Look at the figures.

At the time of writing, the number of  “confirmed cases” in the US was 64.

A low number and the media is spreading panic.

Meanwhile, there are  15 Million Cases of Influenza in the USA.

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

The latest FluView surveillance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that as of January 18, 2020, there have been 15 million cases of flu, 140,000 hospitalizations, and 8200 deaths in the US this influenza season. (emphasis added)

Data on the COVID-19 pandemic: 

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported on February 28, 2020 83,652 confirmed cases of COV-19 of which 78,961 are in Mainland China. Outside China, there are 4691 “confirmed cases” (WHO, February 28, 2020, See table on right).

The WHO has also reported 2,791 deaths of which only 67 have occurred outside Mainland China.

These figures confirm that the pandemic is largely limited to Mainland China.

Moreover, recent data suggests that the epidemic in China is firmly under control. On February 21, 2020, China’s National Health Commission reported that 36.157 patients were designated as cured and discharged from hospital. (see graph below).

Chinese reports confirm that people have received treatment and are recovering from the virus infection. Concurrently, the number of infected patients is declining.

According to the National Medical Products Administration of China, hospitals are  using Favilavir, an anti-viral drug, “as a treatment for coronavirus with minimal side effects”.


Lets Crunch the Numbers  

The World Population is of the order of  7.8 billion.

The population of China is of the order of 1.4 billion.

The World population minus China is of the order of 6.4 billion.

4691 confirmed cases and 67 reported deaths (outside China) out of a population of 6.4 billion does not constitute a pandemic. 4691/6,4oo,ooo,ooo =0.00000073 = 0.000073 %

64 cases in the US which has a population of approximately 330 million is not a pandemic. (Feb 28 data): 64/330,000,000 = 0.00000019 = 0.000019 %

Why the Propaganda? Racism directed against Ethnic Chinese

A  campaign against China was launched, a wave of racist sentiment against ethnic Chinese is ongoing largely led by the Western media.

The Economist reports that “The coronavirus spreads racism against—and among—ethnic Chinese”

Fear of covid-19 makes people behave badly, including some Chinese

“Britain’s Chinese community faces racism over coronavirus outbreak” according to the SCMP

“Chinese communities overseas are increasingly facing racist abuse and discrimination amid the coronavirus outbreak. Some ethnic Chinese people living in the UK say they experienced growing hostility because of the deadly virus that originated in China.”

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

And this phenomenon is happening all over the U.S.

Economic Warfare against China

US strategies consist in using COVID-19 to isolate China, despite the fact that the US economy is heavily dependent upon Chinese imports.

The short-term disruption of the Chinese economy is largely attributable to the (temporary) closing down of the channels of trade and transportation.

The WHO Global Public Health emergency is coupled with media disinformation and the freezing of air travel to China.

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

Panic on Wall Street 

Spearheaded by media disinformation, there is another dimension. Panic in the stock markets. 

The Coronavirus fear has triggered the drop of financial markets Worldwide.

In a bitter irony, analysts in chorus have casually linked the market collapse to the escalation of the coronavirus at a time when there was less than 64 confirmed cases in the US.

It’s not surprising that the market went down because … the virus has gotten so expanded. … ‘

Was it Possible to “Predict” the February Financial Crash?  

It would be naive to believe that the financial crisis was solely the consequence of spontaneous market forces, responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. The market was carefully manipulated by powerful actors using speculative instruments in the market for derivatives, including “short-selling”.  Media disinformation on the “escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic certainly played a role.

The unspoken objective is the concentration of Wealth. It was a financial bonanza for those who had “inside information” or “foreknowledge” leading up to the WHO’s decision to declare a Worldwide public emergency on January 30.

Was there Foreknowledge of the COVID-19 (nCoV-2019) Pandemic? And of its Likely impacts?

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical DestabilizationOn October 18, 2019, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, Baltimore undertook a carefully designed simulation of a coronavirus epidemic entitled nCoV-2019.

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

Screenshot, 201 A Global Pandemic Exercise

The simulation conducted in October entitled nCoV-2019 was undertaken barely 2 months prior to to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The  John Hopkins Pandemic Exercise simulated a stock market decline of  “15% or more” (Video section 0.0 – 1’2″) which largely corresponds to the real market decline registered in late February 2020.

(See video below)

Many features of the “simulation exercise” do in fact correspond to what actually happened when the WHO Director General launched a global public health emergency on January 3o, 2020.

What must be understood is that the sponsors of the John Hopkins “simulation exercise” are powerful and knowledgeable actors respectively in the areas of “Global Health” (B. and M. Gates Foundation) and “Global Economy” (WEF).

It is also worth noting that the WHO initially adopted a similar acronym (to designate the coronavirus) to that of the John Hopkins Pandemic Exercise (nCoV-2019) before it was changed to COVID-19. 

Corruption and The Role of the WHO

And what motivated WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to declare the coronavirus nCoV-2019  as a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC)” on January 30 when the epidemic was largely confined to Mainland China? 

The evidence suggests that WHO Director-General Tedros was serving the interests of powerful corporate sponsors.

As health minister, Tedros would also chair the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria that was co-founded by the Gates Foundation. The Global Fund has been riddled with fraud and corruption scandals.

“During Tedros’ three year campaign to win the WHO post he was charged with having covered up three major epidemics of cholera while health minister in Ethiopia, mislabeling the cases as “acute watery diarrhea” (AWD)—a symptom of cholera—in an attempt to play down the significance of the epidemics, charges he denied.”(Engdahl, op. cit.)


COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

A massive vaccine campaign has been ordered by the Director General of the WHO Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Numerous pharmaceutical companies are already working on the development of a vaccine.

In this regard, it is worth recalling the WHO scam during the mandate of his predecessor Dr. Margaret Chan, who stated in relation to the 2009 H1N1 Swine Flu Pandemic that:

“Vaccine makers could produce 4.9 billion pandemic flu shots per year in the best-case scenario”,Margaret Chan, Director-General, World Health Organization (WHO), quoted by Reuters, 21 July 2009, emphasis added)

COVID-19 Coronavirus: A Fake Pandemic? Who’s Behind It? Global Economic, Social and Geopolitical Destabilization

There was no H1N1 pandemic in 2009. It was a money making scam as revealed by the European Parliament.

What’s the Next Phase of COVID-19 Pandemic? Is it Fake or is it Real?

  • The propaganda campaign against China is not over.
  • Neither is the “fear pandemic” outside China despite the exceedingly low number of “confirmed cases”.
  • The financial crisis is ongoing, supported by media disinformation and financial meddling.
  • If normal US-China trade (and transportation) relations fail to be duly restored, the shipping of  “Made in China” consumer goods exported to America could be affected.
  • This in turn could potentially trigger a major crisis in retail trade in the US, i.e “Made in China” commodities constitute a large share of monthly household consumption.
  • From a public health point of view, there are favorable prospects for eliminating the COVID-19 in China. Progress has already been reported.
  • For the rest of the World (which currently has approximately 3000 confirmed cases, 28 February 2020 ) the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing coupled with propaganda in favor of a Worldwide vaccination program.
  • Without a fear campaign coupled with fake news, the incidence of COVID-19 would not have made the headlines.
  • From a health/medical standpoint is a Worldwide vaccination required?
  • 43.3 percent of the “confirmed cases” in China are now categorized as “recovered” (See graph above). Western reports do not make the distinction between “confirmed cases” and “confirmed infected cases”. It is the latter which is relevant. The trend is towards recovery and decline of the “confirmed infected cases”.

The massive WHO vaccination campaign (referred to above) was duly confirmed by Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on February 28: 

“…work is also progressing on vaccines and therapeutics. More than 20 vaccines are in development globally, and several therapeutics are in clinical trials. We expect the first results in a few weeks” (emphasis added)

Needless to say this WHO decision is another financial windfall for the Big Five Vaccine producers: GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, Merck & Co., Sanofi,  Pfizer, which control 85% of the vaccine market. According to CNBC:  (emphasis added)

These companies have jumped into the race to combat the deadly coronavirus, working on vaccine or drug programs.  …  Sanofi is teaming up with the U.S. government to develop a vaccine for the new virus, hoping its work on the 2003 SARS outbreak could speed up the process. Merck’s vaccine business generated $8.4 billion of revenues in 2019, the segment has been growing at an annual rate of 9% since 2010, according to Bernstein. 

GlaxoSmithKline said this month it is partnering with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations [CEPI] for a vaccine program. … CEPI was founded at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in 2017.

Of significance, CEPI was founded in Davos in 2017 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,  the Wellcome Trust (A British Multibillion Humanitarian Foundation), and the World Economic Forum (WEF). The governments of Norway and India are members, largely providing funding to CEPI.


October 18, 2019: The B. and M. Gates Foundation and the WEF were partners in the John Hopkins National Security October 2019  nCoV-2019 Pandemic “Simulation Exercise”.

December 31, 2019  China alerted WHO to several cases of “unusual pneumonia” in Wuhan, Hubei province.

January 72020 Chinese officials announced they had identified a new virus, The novel virus was named by the WHO 2019-nCoV  (exactly the same name as the virus pertaining to the John Hopkins simulation exercise, with the exception of the placement of the date).

January 24, 25, 2020: Meeting at Davos, under the auspices of CEPI which is also a WEF-Gates partnership, the development of a 2019 nCoV vaccine was announced. (2 weeks after the January 7, 2020 announcement, and barely a  week prior to the launching of the WHO’s Worldwide Public Health emergency).

January 30th, 2020, WHO Director General announces the “Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).

And now a Worldwide vaccination campaign has been launched to curb the COVID-19 under the auspices of CEPI in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline. 

Concluding Remarks

While COVID-19 (alias nCoV-2019) constitutes a multi-billion corporate bonanza for Big Pharma, it has also contributed to precipitating humanity into a dangerous and unfolding global process of economic, social and geopolitical destabilization.

Masonic creeps have a retarded dream to destroy civilisation because they got the balls to rebuild the world based on their proven hard work ethics track record,they say,well they need to get off the smack!

Let’s fall for any bullsht trying to blame on someone else,that would no no man justice but dumbed,

You do the research,and know how evil london masonic templars were,uk ought to ban these creeps!


In Exile

Damned Jews up to no good again, it’s always the Jew and if it isn’t look again old chum.


Sure. And what proves it is that Israel already has a Coronavirus vaccine for birds that is being altered to hopefully work for humans in a few months. But they won’t let it be used by Nazis like you, Adolf. Bye bye.

In Exile

You son of a bitch gimee that vaccine! Actually I’d rather gnaw on my own entrails than use a Jewish vaccine. You desrve a Gold Star old chum.


Great to hear that, Adolf. Folk like you really deserve their Darwin Awards.


LET IS BE REAL=CHINA is not to be trusted for figures plain&simple, whole apartment complexs are being welded shut, people being taken out with dudes in full body suits.-THIS IS KILLING PEOPLE.

No doubt it will be used to further vaccination=depopulation, Quarantine=martial law etc etc

read ciceros passage about the traitor, lets you know exactly what we are up against.

Ishyrion Av

There is a difference of causes and reasons between China and the rest of the world, regarding the coronovirus epidemic. Sources from China says that they managed to implement a system based on person’s identity, able to control and restrict the movement of any person. A system able to know where you are, what you are, what you do anytime.
For example, in order to take a bus or to enter a shop, you need to scan your ID. The door opens if the color is green, stays closed if the color is red. How they managed to do this so fast and so wide? My opinion is they had the system in place and now they test it. They needed to create the panic to cover this operation.
As for the rest of the world, everyone took the opportunity to implement its own agenda: mandatory vaccination, political hysteria, passing controversial laws behind this smoke screen, etc.
But in the end, an epidemics with a death rate lower than flu, who affects mainly the older and people already very sick, which is not a threat by itself became a threat from the perspective of what our governments can do behind it!


What are you talking about? In Italy in 1 week we went from 4 infected to 2100 and it’s still growing at the speed of 300-500 infected per day… Are you still gonna say this is not pandemic?

Ishyrion Av

Is a flu. Pandemic was black plague.


No. Pandemic as in Spanish Flu that killed 50 million people worldwide a century ago before the age of air travel. Try to get the basics correct.

Ishyrion Av

Spanish flu was hardly a flu. The circumstances were also extraordinary: Europe was in ruin after the first war, the food was missing and the sanitation was absent.


The reason for keeping my mouth shut, was becasue I wanted to see it, my self this time and not react to anything, and let time run, and then we have an more reasonable conclusion, not mere assumptions, witch are based upon even more assumptions, and every person whom is able to sew this into something else, is jumping onboard, Yeehaaa, finaly we have something, an double wammer, China and Economy.

This Corona reaks of MSM and Gov/etc, propaganda, not only propaganda, but hyping this up to levels witch dont reflect the facts, flu kills, every day, pneumonia, even more, much more, and then comes this, even inside China it turned out to be controlled, swift reactions, while the western rats whined about terroring their own citizens, the same people now is screaming even louder when they realise that their own Gov isnt able to jerk their deeply rotten up into their asses, thumbs to do anything, and meanwile it spreads, to DNA mombo jumbo, and to Chines reactions to disinfo, and so on, I think this scale and scope will not be replikated in the west, and if not, what then when they deside to go harsh.

This types of contagigents, whom rapidly spreads, and by various means aka thru air, incubation time, etc to how to protect your self, but, this level of hysteria, we had I think 2 years ago, then it was Ebola, and the entire MSM incl Alts, when instant nutts and hystericaly gnashed the same as they did to this, eh…. plague, and the Ebola scare got realy high on the bullshit scale all thoe localy it was indeed an problem was hyped upto pandemic levels in an hart beat by the same western/alternative sites that pimped this Chines origin and problem to one even louder level, an massive wall of bollocks, so much noice it makes everything to an haze, and threw everything, incl consentration camps, etc, on the same time, and demonising an enteri people, nothing new but this time obvious, then to the origin of this, the thing is, where it came from will be hard to find, since its family is wide, and they can dorm in one and be active in another, to then affect an human, have happened and since we arent that different, may happen again, and despite the hype, not that dangerous, but of course, sould be contained, but to then pimp vaccine, makes the whole Conspiracy more real, since I dont belive anything this people say at all, nada, and I look forward to read the coming months about what virus are we talking about, really.

The second term is, again where the probabilitys are highest, rests on several things, from hygien, to industrial scal farming, everything from chikens to diary, they create and live in conditions that also goes from horrible to natural, as it should have been, to much domenticated animals, simply.
Not only do this farms, create the conditions, but the place quality, is bad and cramp/damp, create breeding ground for larger clusters and makes potential new problems, rise, again, hygien and treat animals so much acordingly to their nature as possible.
And from this to farms that kills the earth, with chemicals; GMOs, nutrients, monoculture, and slaughtering our oceans in an tempo that is mindboggling.

The entire Corona was/is an orcestrated quire of howling f…. and echoned eatch others for their bare lifes, and on top of it, whines about fake news, yeah, depends of course, where you sit or to what direction you bow.
But dont loose the ball/s, economy and the banana republic, bot inherent insane and have an reality that gives Baron Von Munchousen Syndrome by uh…… proxy, new faces to behold.
Never have so many lied about so little, hehe, the teaching of this last weeks.


Tudor Miron

Some may remember that I was saying that this is nothing other than a soap opera for sheeple some weeks ago. One has to simply count how many people die from well known illness around the world and compare those numbers to this extremely well advertised “disastrous” virus.
More than that – vast majority of deaths are reported from China and we’ll never know why they died, how they died and did they even die.


I hope you have some Coronavirus festering in your tinfoil hat, kid.

Tudor Miron

get lost creature.


LOL…will be you first, kid.

peter mcloughlin

There is evidence to suggest the coronavirus crisis is being politically exploited, adding only more instability to a world already teetering on the brink of nuclear Armageddon.

good american

Who is behind it? At first I thought Satan, but then realized that it was more than likely the US.


I believe they traced it to a snake in a Chinese food market who got it from a bat.

good american

Apparently there are additions in this virus that experts say are virtually impossible to occur naturally. I find it interesting that both China, which happens to be in a trade war and a military expansionist phase, and a good part of the Iranian leadership both get hit hard with it at the same time. Maybe just coincidence, maybe not.
Church Lady would say ‘Isn’t that convenient!’


And other “experts” say that proves the Chinese did it to themselves by accident since their main bio-warfare lab is in the city were this started and where it is centered. But I believe in Black Swans in these matters way more than tinfoil hat theories.

S Melanson

First, the 5,000 outside China has in 3.5 days passed 12,000 and will surpass total China cases by March 12. I have biomedical background including research methods in epidemiology and contagion modelling. China cases are underreported and this has become widely accepted with actual cases and deaths at least ten times higher and more likely twenty or more times higher based on multiple epidemiologists independently modelling the outbreak.

For a hoax, China has locked down hundreds of millions, unprecedented in human history and taking a huge economic hit. I do believe this is not natural and bio-engineered – possibly accidental release from China’s only biolevel 4 lab that just happens to be in Wuhan, studying potential of Coronavirus family as a bioweapon. Epidemiologists used standard estimation models to determine actual caseload in Iran after Iran had exported a multitude of cases to other countries which would be statistically impossible if the caseload was only the official 61 cases. They estimated 20,000 cases in Iran. Italy, same thing.

This virus is not about killing, at least not directly. It is to cause high morbidity intensity putting so many in need of ICU that medical systems are overwhelmed and collapsed – as evident in Wuhan – this collapse means fatality rate higher as serious cases cannot get help and other ailments untreated lead to many indirect deaths. Epidemiologists predict 5 to 6.5 billion likely infected if unable to contain but most concede the containment battle already lost. Fatality rate when globally overwhelmed health systems is around 5.5 to 6.5% using official Wuhan numbers which are not to be trusted. So direct fatalities around 350 million but probably more like 500 million. Indirect deaths we can double the number and we are looking at 700 million to 1 billion. Economic and civil disorder propagation effects are not considered here.

However, Trump said this pandemic would just simply ‘Go away’. So what does Trump know that would have him say something so odd? Hmmmm.


Trump always say odd things. And that is kind. But your estimates seem a wee bit high. However, the epidemiologists I’ve spoken to do say it should be like the Spanish Flu pandemic of a century ago. That’s way bad enough. The Kremlin types playing games about this are totally irresponsible. This is even way worse than their anti-vaccine crap. If we survive this and the Dems win in November, it will be past time to do in Putz Putin and his RF.

คงศักดิ์ วงศ์ชูศรี

Trump said this pandemic will go in April because he is the one who sent Covid19 into China .

Yes, that is how I interpreted Trump’s (highly odd) statement. This assumes control of the virus is maintained after release and reaching full blown pandemic. Well we will soon find out if the virus can be controlled or, will it be like the Titanic that was claimed unsinkable…

St. Augustine

So far it looks like there’s a higher fatality rate compared to the seasonal flu, but it’s definitely being used as a way to increase the information campaign against Chinese authorities. Some of the neocon drivel I’ve read and heard is completely unhinged; these people like Steve Bannon are psychotic. As for Bill Gates, anything linked to him should be carefully investigated under the microscope.

I wouldn’t read much into the racism angle. Western media is always looking to create division among people, and so-called white people are apparently all demons.


And in the time it took you to write this piece of crap, the cases in the US doubled to over a100, with 10 confirmed deaths. And that is without many test kits yet in use. Oh, that’s almost a 10% mortality rate compared to the seasonal Flue with about 0.1. Even in China with millions of tests the death rate is 20 times that of the Flu. So there is a justified real concern. And Kremlin fools like you also tell folk not to get vaccinations. Oh, tell your Islamist friends in the leadership of Iran what a fake this is as they seem to be dropping like flies from this deadly new virus. But than again, every cloud has a silver lining.

AG Korvin

An article written a few weeks ago. Ots factual findings are free to check by anyone: utterly imprecise and full of bitter mistakes. But at least now you can compare the face value vs the value of the articles on here.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
