Russia will fight the coronavirus with 250 grams of vodka a day
In early February, Russian media was flooded with reports and suggestion that another deadly conspiracy in the “hateful West” was behind the deadly coronavirus.
Military website tvzvezda.ru reports that Bill Gates, along with the Pentagon and US pharmaceutical companies, last year conducted a study modeling the epidemic with 65 million casualties. Other Moscow media have circulated that the coronavirus was created in US military laboratories. That’s why those who don’t want to get infected “get 250g of vodka a day,” writes Frankfurter Rundschau.
The Kremlin’s propaganda machine is using the new deadly infection that has erupted in China to instill mistrust, suspicion and hatred in the West. By spreading a series of fake news against the “bad United States,” the Kremlin is trying to shift the blame from a sick head to a healthy head. This reception in Putin’s country has been known since the USSR, when it was suggested that the US was guilty of AIDS. Although the theory emerged that the virus was created as a form of biological weapon for the Chinese military. It has been refuted by famous epidemiologists, who said the epidemic was coming from an animal market in Juan, and the most likely vector for the virus was local bats. As Russia lacks modern health care, uses vodka as a medicine for the virus.
