Scientist with four degrees says pandemic is being used
Shiva Ayyadurai said that the chronic “fear-mongering” over the outbreak was being used to push an agenda.
Ayyadurai said on Twitter:
“As an MIT PhD in Biological Engineering who studies & does research nearly every day on the Immune System, the #coronavirus fear-mongering by the Deep State will go down in history as one of the biggest fraud to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, & push MANDATED Medicine!”
However, Ayyadurai did not say the disease is man-made or a hoax.
NOTE: (You should still follow the guidelines from doctors, government, and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)
Ayyadurai said the government was using the pandemic to frighten people into obedience.

On his March 13 radio broadcast, Rush Limbaugh said of Dr. Ayyadurai:
“He’s a smart guy, and, as a lot of smart guys are, he’s kind of on the edge. He can be a little nutty. But he’s not nutty on this. He has four degrees from MIT.”
Limbaugh noted that, during a break in the broadcast, he received several emails saying essentially:
“Rush, you’re falling for it! This guy’s obviously a kook. He put a phony tweet out there, and you’re falling for it!”
Earlier his week, Fox News host Sean Hannity claimed that it might “be true” that the “deep state” is using the coronavirus to push “mandated medicines.”

“There’s an MIT guy I noticed on Twitter, and you know he’s saying pretty much the same thing he does research nearly every single day on immune systems he said quote ‘coronavirus fear-mongering by the deep state will go down in history as one of the biggest frauds to manipulate economies, suppress dissent, and push mandated medicines,’” Hannity said, adding, “May be true.”
On March 9, President Donald Trump tweeted:
“The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant. Surgeon General, ‘The risk is low to the average American.’ ”
“Surgeon General, ‘The risk is low to the average American,’” Trump added.
Some Republican lawmakers issued calls for putting politics aside in order to deal with the outbreak.
Up to now, there are 500 cases have been confirmed in the U.S, mostly in Washington state.
Surgeon General Jerome Adams said the nation is entering a so-called mitigation point, and people should not panic even as more cases appear.
