The world of information is complex – and false stories and images are often spread on social media. Each week, the editors at Blasting News publish the most popular hoaxes and misleading information to help you tell the truth from the lies. Here are some of the most common false claims this week, none of which are legitimate.
Complaints: COVID-19 arrived 400 meters from a Chinese laboratory that studies coronaviruses.
Facts: According to reports on Twitter, the first cases of the new coronavirus were recorded at a fish market in the Chinese city of Wuhan, just 400 meters from the Chinese Communist Party laboratory studying the coronavirus in bats. The lawsuit was also shared by Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz.
Right: Contrary to reports, the Wuhan Institute of Virology is located about 27 kilometers from the fish market where the first cases of Covid-19 were reported.
Actually, it’s called Covid-19. It’s a special kind of coronavirus.
He’s from Wuhan, China. 400 meters from the CCP laboratory, where bat coronaviruses are studied.
Then the CCP disappeared the brave Chinese doctors and whistleblowers who tried to stop him.

Complaints: Google Earth has blocked access to the Suez Canal.
Facts: In the incident involving the container ship Ever Given, which was stuck in the Suez Canal for almost a week, published last Monday (29), Facebook users claim that Google Earth was blocking access to parts of the canal.
Screenshots were shared in the posts showing a marked difference between sections of the canal, some with clear blue water and others with an almost black hue.
Right: Contrary to what the reports suggest, Google Earth images are not updated in real time. The mosaic of satellite and aerial imagery you see on Google Maps and Google Earth comes from many different vendors, including government agencies, research organizations and commercial image providers, said Matt Manolides, a satellite imagery expert at Google, in a company blog post.
According to Manolides, these photos were taken on different days and under different light and weather conditions, which explains the difference in colour of the canal water in the photos.
Claim: 30% of people vaccinated against COVID-19 die within three months.
Facts: A post on WhatsApp claims that 30% of people who receive the COVID-19 vaccine die within three months.
The posts are accompanied by a link to an article attributing the information to Sherry Tenpenny, an American osteopathic physician and anti-vaccination expert. According to the text, people who are vaccinated will die due to the storm of cytokines in their bodies.
Right: In an interview with the Brazilian fact-checking agency Aos Fatos, Rodolfo Baselar, a pulmonologist and sleep doctor at HCFMUSP (Hospital das Clínicas, Faculty of Medicine, University of São Paulo), explains: Unlike a viral infection that causes such a storm, vaccines do not cause this reaction. The one causing the storm is the live virus, not the vaccine. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 126 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the United States.
and 2,216 deaths of vaccinated persons (0.0018%) occurred after 22 months. A study by doctors at the CDC and FDA also found that there was no evidence that vaccines contributed to these deaths.
Complaints: COPID-19 deaths reach record levels in countries where the vaccine has been successfully introduced
Facts: Facebook users shared a blog post claiming that Covid 19 deaths are increasing in countries with the most successful vaccinations. According to the report, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 in Israel, the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates – countries where the population has been massively vaccinated – has reached record levels.
Right: In contrast to the successor states, Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United Arab Emirates have experienced dramatic reductions in Covida-19 deaths since the inception of vaccination programs.
Israel, for example, recorded a total of 12 deaths in March after a peak of 101 deaths on the 20th. January. The United Kingdom, which is on 20. January reached a high of 1,832, recorded on the 29th. The deaths of March 22.
Complaints: The video of empty graves in Thailand is a sign of excitement.
Facts: The video, which has been shared thousands of times on Facebook, shows a filthy cemetery and areas of exposed graves. These reports claim that the images were taken in Thailand and are evidence of what Christians call the rapture, a biblical event that marks the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Right: A reverse image search reveals that the video was taken in June 2019 in the village of Shurkurgan, Tajikistan. According to a report attributed to Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL), the graves collapsed after the cemetery was flooded by water from a river flowing along the edge of the village.
Complaints: France bans halal slaughter of chickens
Facts: Twitter users shared a message from Turkish state media TRT claiming that the French government will ban the halal slaughter of chickens.
The truth: On the 18th. March 2021, the major mosques of Paris, Lyon and Evry announced in a press release that from July 2021, the ritual slaughter of halal poultry will no longer be allowed in France. However, this statement is a misinterpretation of a note published by the French Ministry of Agriculture on March 23. November 2020 published. In an interview with AFP, Kamel Kabtan, president of the mosque in Lyon, said: The directive, as drafted, will not prohibit (halal) slaughter, but will significantly reduce the amount of poultry produced.
The ban on halal slaughter was also denied by Marion Giroud, spokeswoman for the French Ministry of Agriculture.
Muslim leaders in France are highly critical of the decision to ban the slaughter of poultry according to Islamic principles https://t.co/KpwaQId3fE.
