In this broadcast, journalist Mathilde Gracia demonstrates that a video claiming that the coronavirus was invented by the Pasteur Institute. This video has been viewed more than three million times on social networks. The man who published it is very involved in the “yellow vests” movement.
Facing the camera, for twenty minutes, he explains that he found a document which would prove that the coronavirus was manufactured in France, invented by researchers from the Pasteur Institute. It shows a European patent filed in 2004. “This is what is killing us today. I am not accusing anyone. I am not here for that. On the first page, we find the inventors. They took two viruses. Everything is indicated“, He says.
As often in conspiracy theories, it starts from a real document. The patent does exist. But man misinterprets it. The video was so successful that the Pasteur Institute was forced to deny it on its website. This document is a patent for a vaccine, not a virus. It is actually the 2003 coronavirus, Sars-CoV-1, and not the current coronavirus, Sars-CoV-2.
“There is no drug whatsoever that has shown clinical efficacy with Covid-19 “, insists in the show Dr. Bleibtreu, infectious disease specialist at the Pitié-Salpêtrière hospital in Paris.
Linh-Lan Dao and Julien Pain also return to all of this false advice that swarms on social networks to protect themselves from the coronavirus. Lisa Beaujour denies the rumor that the coronavirus is a chemical attack from China.
