The coronavirus pandemic currently affecting the world has brought out the best and worst in people.
Some people are being kind and volunteering to help those in need. While others are taking the opportunity to spread dumb conspiracy theories online and off.
These conspiracy theorists have a particular bee in their bonnets about Bill Gates, a man who made a fortune from founding Microsoft, and then turned his attention to helping the world.
For some reason, they think that his warnings about the risk of a killer virus sweeping the planet mean he’s now complicit. Which would be like blaming the doctor who warned you to stop eating junk food when you have a heart attack.
