From The Flat Earth Society, to those that believe the world is secretly run by a race of humanoid lizards, conspiracies are ingrained into the fabric of everyday society. Something that is experienced by thousands to millions of people is bound to raise questions of, “Why?”, and, “How?”.

A conspiracy is defined by Oxford Dictionary as, “A secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful”.

The recent pandemic that has all but brought society as a whole to a halt. With people out of work, with orders to be in their homes, the question, “How did we come to this?” came about.

The virus that has claimed 36,211 lives and counting was created by big pharmacy companies funded by Bill Gates, owner of Microsoft, to gain a profit on the amount of supplies and treatment that would be needed during a global pandemic. 

This of course is not true. This was a theory formulated by the Anti-vax community because they feel as if they are being forced to take treatment and medication that they do not believe in.

The true purpose of the COVID-19 was to destroy all small, and even medium sized businesses. With the hit the world economy has taken due to the restrictions of travel, dozens of businesses and companies have had to shut down operations and temporarily lay off millions of workers, leaving only the giants such as Amazon, and McDonald’s. 

This is also false. The COVID-19 virus, according to the Center for Disease Control, has concluded that the virus originated in Wuhan, China in December, 2019.

Some Americans believe that the Chinese Government created this as a weapon to knock out the economies of the top world producers knowing that their population would be able to recover as the rest of the world would still be growing in people infected.

The truth is that no one yet knows the exact origin of the virus that has affected 755,591 people worldwide directly, and millions indirectly.

These times are full of uncertainty, fear, and misinformation. We must resist the urge to follow the herd. We should do thorough research from credible sources and stand together in solidarity with our fellow citizens of Earth. The only cure we have as of now is celebrities singing from their mansions.
