Truth : WEF Founder Klaus Schwab Was Not Hospitalised!

This appears to be yet another example of fake news circulating online, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : Klaus Schwab Was Not Hospitalised!

No matter what you think of him, Klaus Schwab is a person of note, as the founder of the World Economic Forum (WEF). If he was ever hospitalised, it would have been reported all over the world. However, there has been no legitimate media report of Klaus Schwab being hospitalised for any reason.

On top of that, WEF spokesperson Yann Zopf confirmed to both Snopes and Lead Stories that the rumours were “entirely baseless”, and Schwab was in “excellent” health:

These claims are entirely baseless and unfounded. Professor Schwab’s health is excellent. Like many high-profile individuals and organizations, he and the World Economic Forum have been targeted by conspiracy narratives, as well as misinformation and disinformation campaigns.

Finally, none of those who claimed that Klaus Schwab was hospitalised actually provided any evidence to back up their claims.

Fact #2 : Source Is Untrustworthy

It appears that the source of these claims originated in a new website called Weekly Crier.

Weekly Crier is not only a very new website, whose domain was registered only on 8 January 2024; it appears to post a hodgepodge of AI-generated content. The Weekly Crier ownership is also hidden, with its authors using pseudonyms.

Unsurprisingly, the Weekly Crier did not provide any evidence to back up its claims that Klaus Schwab has been hospitalised. In short – this is an untrustworthy source.

Fact #3 : Weekly Crier Article Was AI-Generated

I ran the Weekly Crier article (archive) through five AI content detectors, and they all unanimously reported it as AI-generated content.

  • Scribbr : 100% chance that your text is generated by AI
  • GPTZero : There is a 100% probability this text was entirely written by AI
  • Quillbot : 100% of text is likely AI-generated
  • Undetectable AI : Your content is detected as written by AI (0% Human)
  • Copyleaks : AI Content Detected

Frankly speaking, anyone reading the text will get a feeling that the text was AI-generated. These detectors merely confirmed that it really was AI-generated.
