Social media users have falsely claimed that a top court in Spain ruled "Covid is a bioweapon with a patent" in a humiliating blow to the country's health minister. The baseless claim was shared on Telegram in Australia in a post that was then recirculated in Thailand, the US and the UK. The Spanish health ministry said the allegation was "false" and the country's Supreme Court separately said it had not ruled Covid-19 is a "bioweapon".
