Secret Laboratories

In many countries around the world, the USA has helped to set up centres for the prevention and control of infectious diseases. Since then, conspiracy theories have also been circulating that these are in fact just front organizations for secret laboratories, where the USA is researching viruses and bioweapons with the potential to wipe out large parts of humanity. Shortly after the invasion of Ukraine, this theory was suddenly on everyone‘s lips again. Russia used its trolls and propaganda channels to spread the narrative that the USA was operating a ‚network of bioweapons laboratories‘ in Ukraine – and that Russia wanted to shut it down to protect humanity. However, this false information has been refuted several times.
