On Tuesday news came out that soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo had tested positive for the coronavirus.  On Wednesday his sister, Katia Aveiro, made headlines by claiming that the coronavirus is the "biggest fraud" she's ever seen.

Aveiro shared a several posts on her Instagram story questioning the pandemic.  She also revealed that nobody believes Ronaldo actually has it because he doesn't have any symptoms.

From Newsweek:

"If Cristiano Ronaldo is the one who has to wake the world up, I have to say that this Portuguese really is an envoy from God. Thank you!" she wrote originally in Portuguese.

"I believe that, today, thousands of people who have come to believe so much in this pandemic, in the tests and the measures taken will, like me, see it is the biggest fraud I've seen since I was born," she continued, adding, "A phrase that I read today and that I stood up to applaud: 'Enough fooling the entire world'. Someone, open your eyes, please."

Aveiro also noted that Ronaldo didn't believe he had the virus since he was asymptomatic.

The coronavirus isn't a hoax and it's definitely real.  But the fact that there are a lot of people who are asymptomatic, and the overwhelming number of people who test positive do survive, has a lot of people questioning the extent of the lockdowns.
