How The ‘Plandemic’ Video Hoax Went Viral

English-language mentions of the conspiratorial video “Plandemic” have dwindled since it debuted in May. But according to new research exclusively shared with BuzzFeed News by First Draft, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fact-checking worldwide, the popularity of the video has soared in other languages and countries around the world.

Featuring scientist Judy Mikovits, whose history includes a retracted paper, being fired by her research institution, and jail time, the video became a centerpiece of coronavirus disinformation after it was released on May 4. When it was first published, it outperformed legitimate content and spread across the web faster than fact-checkers could debunk it.

But even though the video centered on the United States, seeking to discredit National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci, it found an audience abroad, too. The video was shared in Facebook groups in a dozen languages including Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Polish, Armenian, and Tagalog, as well as English-language groups across Africa. It was also translated and either subtitled or dubbed into at least 13 different languages so that local audiences could understand it.

The result is evidence that while the United States constantly worries about foreign disinformation operations, the country exports false information as well.

"Stuff that goes viral or takes off in the US will generally circulate throughout the world,” Rory Smith, research manager at First Draft, told BuzzFeed News. “And when it’s kind of exported abroad, it will have a much longer tail.”
