It is almost a year and a half since Covid-19 was detected in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the question of how the virus first emerged remains a mystery.
But in recent weeks the controversial claim that the pandemic might have leaked from a Chinese laboratory – once dismissed by many as a fringe conspiracy theory – has been gaining traction.
Donald Trump has already sought to take credit for the renewed interest in an emailed statement to the New York Post. “To me it was obvious from the beginning but I was badly criticised, as usual,” he said. “Now they are all saying: ‘He was right.'”
This will be music to the ears of conspiracy theorists and probably some anti-vaxxers.
Even if not, they will have something to chat about on their un social distanced first date.
This is because there is a now a dating site for anti-vaxxers, and no it isn’t called unhinged.
Unjected– its website says – will “connect critical thinkers across the world dedicated to a healthier tomorrow” and intends on being “a safe place for covid19 unvaccinated individuals to connect and find each other in their own communities.”
“We believe in true science & the scientific method. Observation has shown the science isn’t settled,” the website, which says it was made by two mothers (not scientists) in Hawaii.
“Covid19 vaccines are shedding dangerous spike proteins,” it then falsely claims.
Their mission statement is…”Since the long term shedding effects are unknown in real world situations.
“We intend on being a safe place for covid19 unvaccinated individuals to connect and find each other in their own communities.
“To find safe Businesses and services, fulfilling friendships or love connections.
“We hope to connect critical thinkers across the world dedicated to a healthier tomorrow.”
