Conspiracy theories start with disbelief in conventional wisdom in favour of a secret malevolent “real story” that’s being hidden from the public through some cover up.  Conspiracy theorists often aren’t so much theorists as they are conspiracy theists. That is, people who believe in conspiracy theories aren’t usually so much theorising and coming up with explanations on their own as they are hearing them from other people or finding them online. 

In the midst of a global pandemic, conspiracy theorists have found unprecedented ways to spread dangerous disinformation and misinformation about COVID-19. The visual assaulting animation reflects the bombardment of conspiracies about COVID-19 on a daily basis.
