Laura Birx Wiki – Laura Birx Biography
Laura Birx, who according to her Linkedin profile, lives in Seattle, Washington, is not related to Dr. Deborah Birx. While Laura earned her Master of Public Health at George Washington University, which is located in Washington, D.C., and knowing Dr. Birx lives in the metropolitan area, as well as sharing the same last name, it’s possible to see why the mix-up happened.
Once the seed was planted the Laura Birx was related to Dr. Birx, the right-wing conspiracy group, QAnon, famous for blowing up the Pizzagate campaign against former First lady Hillary Clinton during her presidential campaign, ran with it. One user online tweeted, “They are all dirty and guilty.”
While Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx are largely considered the nation’s most knowledgable leaders on infectious diseases, right-wing media, especially Fox News reporter Laura Ingraham, isn’t a fan. She tweeted, “At some point “the experts” could claim “the models” show that private vehicle ownership kills millions worldwide, that “flattening the curve” on climate change is a global imperative, requiring private travel ONLY for “essential activities.” Then what?”
On April 8, she also tweeted, “At some point, the president is going to have to look at Drs. Fauci and Birx and say, we’re opening on May 1. Give me your best guidance on protocols, but we cannot deny our people their basic freedoms any longer.”
This kind of rhetoric makes Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx the scapegoats of the fallout from the current shutdown due to coronavirus, and falsely tying Laura Birx into the mix only caused for more false information to be shared online.
In late March, a fake “open letter” supposedly written by billionaire Bill Gates and published by the U.K. gossip outlet, The Sun, wrote that coronavirus was not a disaster, but a “great correcter.” The letter circulated in both English and Chinese on numerous social media channels.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation stated on their Weibo account on March 24, that the letter was faked. “Recently an article credited to Bill Gates with the title ‘What we can learn from the novel coronavirus epidemic’ has circulated online after being translated from a report published on the website of British newspaper The Sun. It has been confirmed that the article presents false information and has been removed from The Sun’s website. Please stop sharing the article. Thank you!”
