COVID-19 denialism or merely COVID denialism is the thinking of those who deny the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic, or, at the very least, deny that deaths are happening in the manner or proportions scientifically recognized by the World Health Organization. The claims that the COVID-19 pandemic has been faked, exaggerated, or mischaracterized are pseudoscience. Some famous people who have engaged in COVID-19 denialism include Elon Musk, former U.S. President Donald Trump, and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
