|00:02||Wednesday, January 11 2023.|
|00:05||Welcome to a new episode of CortoTg.|
|00:08||Let’s start with the shocking statements made by a Hungarian scientist,|
|00:12||released to the daily publication “Die Welt”.|
|00:15||It deals with a Hungarian biochemist who worked on the creation of mRNA vaccines, for BioNTech.|
|00:23||This scientist has released an interview for the German publication “Die Welt”.|
|00:28||She has acknowledged that mRNA vaccines can cause tumors in the dormant phase.|
|00:36||Under adverse circumstances, an infection in dormant phase|
|00:40||can arise within individuals with an already weakened immune system,|
|00:44||stated the scientist.|
|00:47||Such statement raises questions about the long-term adverse effects of these anti-Covid products.|
|00:55||Which have never been tested for their carcinogenicity and genotoxicity, let’s keep that in mind.|
|01:02||Let’s stay focused on the anti-Covid vaccines, since we have news from the European Parliament.|
|01:08||After refusing twice to appear before the Committee of Inquiry on Covid,|
|01:12||of the European Parliament,|
|01:16||Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla sent a written statement meant to answer the thirteen questions|
|01:21||previously asked by the MEPs of the aforementioned investigation board.|
|01:26||In the statement, the Pfizer CEO didn’t say anything about texting|
|01:31||with the President of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen,|
|01:36||during the negotiation talks for the purchase of anti-Covid vaccines by the EU.|
|01:40||He didn’t answer about the disclosure of these contracts either,|
|01:44||which is what the Committee of Inquiry had asked for.|
|01:48||Bourla has simply renewed Pfizer’s commitment to the production of these vaccines.|
|01:53||I mean, that’s a relief: we needed such a reassurance.|
|01:56||He has also reminded us that these vaccines have been authorized in 101 countries,|
|02:01||and have apparently saved four million people from certain death.|
|02:05||Such a statement was published by MEP Francesca Donato on her Twitter account.|
|02:12||She commented: “Pfizer mocks and humiliates the European Parliament,|
|02:16||treating its members as tedious mosquitoes.|
|02:22||No representative of such a firm should be admitted into the European Parliament any longer.|
|02:28||I will support the Green Party’s motion to withdraw their pass.”|
|02:33||This is what Francesca Donato stated on her Twitter account.|
|02:36||Let’s stay on the topic of the anti-Covid vaccines.|
|02:39||Important statements have been released by a former basketball champion.|
|02:44||John Stockton stated that he has knowledge of at least 150 athletes|
|02:50||who died because of the anti-Covid19 vaccine.|
|02:55||The former point guard used to be an NBA star, playing with the Utah Jazz, in the ’80s and ’90s.|
|03:00||Basketball fans surely remember this player, famous for his assists.|
|03:06||He has released an interview for journalist Michele Tafoya’s YouTube channel “Sideline Sanity”.|
|03:14||According to Stockton, in the United States, the number of athletes|
|03:17||who died because of the anti-Covid19 vaccines may be in the thousands.|
|03:21||This is an assist from John Stockton to find the truth, or rather to help us find it.|
|03:29||Someone should surely investigate.
The coronavirus pandemic ‘Great Reset’ theory and a false vaccine claim debunked
22 November 2020
By Jack Goodman and Flora Carmichael
BBC Reality Check
Misinformation about a Covid-19 vaccine and pandemic conspiracy theories continue to thrive on social media.
Here’s what we’ve been fact-checking this week.
Justin Trudeau and the ‘Great Reset’
We start with the revival of the baseless conspiracy theory, known as the ‘Great Reset’, which claims a group of world leaders orchestrated the pandemic to take control of the global economy.
The conspiracy theory has its origins in a genuine plan entitled ‘The Great Reset’, drawn up by the World Economic Forum (WEF), the organisers of an annual conference for high-profile figures from politics and business. The plan explores how countries might recover from the economic damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Screenshot of a tweet that says “The Great Reset = The New World Order…” We added a “no evidence” label.
The WEF recovery plan has been interpreted as sinister, first by fringe conspiracy theory groups on social media, and then by prominent conservative commentators – prompting tens of thousands of interactions across Facebook and Twitter.
It started trending globally on Twitter last week, when a video of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a UN meeting, saying the pandemic provided an opportunity for a “reset”, went viral.
This sparked fresh claims from people, within Canada and further afield, that a cabal of global leaders is using the pandemic to introduce a range of damaging socialist and environmental policies.
When asked about conspiracy theories at the end of the week, Mr Trudeau said: “I think we’re in a time of anxiety, where people are looking for reasons for things that are happening to them… we’re seeing a lot of people fall prey to disinformation.”
A video from August, which now has close to three million views on YouTube, believes only Donald Trump can thwart this secret plot, which uses Covid-19 to bring the US economy to its knees so the “reset” can begin and people will be “begging” for vaccines.
But the suggestion that politicians planned the virus, or are using it to destroy capitalism is wholly without evidence.
So too is the notion that the World Economic Forum has the authority to tell other countries what to do, or that it is coordinating a secret cabal of world leaders.
The ‘French Plandemic’
Similarly, a French documentary which also refers to a secret global plot has gone viral on YouTube and other social networks this week. The same video promotes unfounded medical advice, misinformation and conspiracy theories about coronavirus.
A poster for a film called “HOLD-UP” with an image of the masked faces of a man and a woman with germs coming out their masks.
Over more than two and a half hours, the film – entitled Hold Up – promises to reveal “the truth” about Covid-19.
Instead, it promotes a slew of previously debunked claims – including allegations that wearing masks is dangerous and global elites somehow planned the pandemic
The film has already been dubbed a French “plandemic” – referencing a similar English-language conspiracy video that was debunked earlier this year.
Like its predecessor, Hold Up is gathering momentum on social media – it has been watched more than a million times in the past few days.
YouTube says the video does not violate its misinformation policies, although it says it has limited its spread in accordance with its rules on tackling content that could misinform users in harmful ways.
Links to it have also been shared hundreds of times on Facebook, Instagram and Reddit.
Fake WHO advice
In India, we’ve found examples of a message circulating on WhatsApp in Hindi, making false claims concerning World Health Organization (WHO) advice.
A screenshot of a message in Hindi and below a second screenshot showing five people talking at the World Doctors Alliance conference. We labelled “false”.
The message falsely claims the WHO has updated its website to say coronavirus is no more of a threat than seasonal flu, and doesn’t require lockdowns and masks.
The WHO has made clear the message does not represent its views, and that its advice on the wearing of masks and social distancing has not changed.
Official figures released in October reveal that in England and Wales around three times as many people had died from Covid-19 than from flu and pneumonia this year.
The WhatsApp message is accompanied by a shortened version of a video posted in English on YouTube last month. The video made various false claims about treatments for coronavirus and was subsequently taken down by YouTube for violating its policies.
Fetus tissue claims
A video first posted on an anti-vaccination Facebook page has generated thousands of shares, and clips from it have been circulated on WhatsApp and Instagram Stories.
Screenshot from a video titled ‘CONFIRMED- aborted Male fetus in Covid 19 vaccine’ showing a packet for the AstraZeneca vaccine candidate. We added a “false” label
In the video, a woman narrates over images of what is apparently packaging for AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine, which is still undergoing tests.
She encourages people to share the video if they don’t want “aborted fetal tissue fragments put into them or their DNA changed”.
Both of these claims are false. The vaccine does not contain any fetal tissue and it won’t change your DNA.
The woman claims the vaccine contains the lung tissue of a 14-week-old aborted male fetus. This is false.
“There are no fetal cells used in any vaccine production process,” says Dr Michael Head, of the University of Southampton.
The video refers to a study which the narrator claims is evidence of what goes into the vaccine. But the narrator’s interpretation is wrong – the study in question explored how the vaccine reacted when introduced to human cells in a lab.
Confusion may have arisen because there is a step in the process of developing a vaccine that uses cells grown in a lab, which are the descendants of embryonic cells that would otherwise have been destroyed. The technique was developed in the 1960s, and no fetuses were aborted for the purposes of this research.
Many virus vaccines are made in this way, explains Dr David Matthews, from Bristol University, adding that any traces of the cells are comprehensively removed from the vaccine “to exceptionally high standards”.
The developers of the vaccine at Oxford University say they worked with cloned cells, but these cells “are not themselves the cells of aborted babies”.
The cells work like a factory to manufacture a greatly weakened form of the virus that has been adapted to function as a vaccine.
But even though the weakened virus is created using these cells, this cellular material is removed when the virus is purified and not used in the vaccine.
