Here is the material we have been sending out. Please share this with your friends, your students, lists as soon as possible. The interest in coronoviruses is waning. There likely will be a mild spike when a cluster of cases comes to the US
Dear Coronavirus Friends,
Over the past 20 years our supercourse has been developing Just in Time lectures where within a day after major disasters we have world renown scientists creating lectures. We just have done this for Coronavirus. This lecture has been distributed to over 200,000 people world wide, and then "snowballed" to many others. It is available in 104 languages. We are updating it every week until it burns itself out.
We were wondering if you might want to make this available.. The lecture is open source so please share it with others.

'The Coronavirus Outbreak Is a Petri Dish for Conspiracy Theories'
Dmystifying conspiracy theory “pop-ups” with Just in Time Lectures
· Eating bat soup causes Coronavirus
· Coronavirus was bioengineered in Canada and the weaponized in Wuhan for population control
· Drinking bleach will cure Coronavirus
· AIDS causes Coronavirus
· A deep state in the world engineered this outbreak in the 1970s
· Space aliens landed in Wuhan bringing this virus
It is amazing in such a short period of time how rapidly the incidence of conspiracy theories has grown. We are working to help stamp out these theories with fast-acting JIT lectures.
