COVID-19 conspiracy theories emerging as a public hazard

Because not all the facts are known yet about COVID-19, conspiracy theories are on the rise about its origin and treatment. Misinformation has stoked xenophobia, spurred fake treatment theories, adding considerable confusion to an already uncertain situation. It is important to expose conspiracy theories with proven factual information.

The article looks like more Chinese communist party propoganda. The nail in the coffin is at the end of the article that directs you to go to the WHO for accurate information. The WHO is not giving out accurate information. Following their recommendation and advice has lead to the spread of this virus. The Chinese Communist Party is very active and its disinfirnation campaign started in December. Be like Taiwan do not believe anything the Chinese Communist Party says or organization beholden to them like the WHO or political parties like the Democrats.

"Misinformation has stoked xenophobia" is a statement with no support. IOW, it's unfounded and likely false.

How to identify conspiracy theories: if it makes China look bad, it's fake news/ conspiracy/ racism. Or whatever shames you for daring to speak out. Your pick.

Well no sh*t. How about teaching everyone the proper way to do research Instead of getting everything from Facebook. It doesn't take much and the skill is transferable to literally every piece of information available. It's the reason we are all on newsvoice right?

Define conspiracy theory in this respect? All throughout January and February all the mainstream media and the WHO called those people that said this virus was coming and to prepare the conspiracy theorists. So now they do a full 180 and we are to all of a sudden believe them? No way!!! They can keep their shitty advice.
