Antibody Tests Were Hailed as a Way to End Lockdowns. They ’re Causing Confusion Instead
Aspen was an early COVID-19 hot spot in Colorado, with a cluster of cases in March linked to tourists visiting for its world-famous skiing. Tests were in short supply, making it difficult to know how the virus was spreading. So in April, when the Pitkin County Public Health Department announced it had obtained 1,000 COVID-19 antibody tests and that they would be offered to residents at no charge, it seemed like an exciting opportunity to evaluate the efforts underway to stop the spread of the virus. “This test will allow us to get the epidemiological data that we’ve been looking for,” Aspen Ambulance Dist...

The Hunt to Understand COVID-19 ’s Connection to Kawasaki Disease
Dr. Jane C. Burns has studied Kawasaki disease for four decades. It took only four months for COVID-19 to turn her life’s work upside down. Unusual numbers of children and teenagers living in COVID-19 hotspots like Lombardy, Italy and New York City have developed an inflammatory condition (officially called Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children, or MIS-C) that looks a lot like Kawasaki disease. In many cases, the children have also tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies, suggesting the syndrome followed a viral infection. In New York State, 170 inflammatory-disease cases and three related deaths are under in...

One has spread across the globe, the other has barely rolled out in most countries and in some cases not at all. That hasn’t stopped conspiracy theorists from conflating the two however. Thanks to a combination of scam artists, the reach of social media, ignorant celebrities and influencers, and general public frustration and confusion, a strange theory has emerged in the months since the global COVID-19 pandemic started. Allegedly, 5G is the culprit behind the pandemic. Citing a lot of ...
