Dr. Dobbs dispels conspiracy theories after receiving “threatening” calls

State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs shared on Twitter that he has become the target of threatening phone calls and cleared up some rumors regarding his family. 

In a thread of tweets, the state’s leading medical expert shared a list of conspiracy theories that have supposedly been making their way around the internet before offering the truth. The content of the tweets can be read below: 

“I have received some threatening phone calls and want to clarify any confusion there may be with some conspiracy theories going around:


– My son works for Dr Fauci in D.C. 

– My son’s wife has financial connections with the World Bank Group (WBG).

– Every time I promote COVID vaccinations – my son gets a World Bank-funded kickback.

Imaginative, no doubt. But ALL LIES. 


– My son is an MD and MPH student in the DC area

– His wife is an MBA student and worked at the WBG before grad school.

– They are completing their studies through their own personal finances. There are no WBG funds involved. I AM VERY PROUD OF THEM BOTH

– I get zero $ from promoting vaccination.”

Dr. Dobbs ended his post by urging everyone to “stay informed and keep yourself and your loved ones safe by getting the vaccine!”
