Misinformation is false or inaccurate information deliberately intended to deceive.
Misinformation in a pandemic can negatively affect human health.
Many false or misleading stories are fabricated and shared without any background or quality checking.
Much of this misinformation is based on conspiracy theories.
It is key to break this dangerous cycle: misinformation expands at the same pace as content production and distribution paths grow. So, the very same infodemic accelerates and perpetuates misinformation.
Makes it hard for people, decision makers, and health workers to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance when they need it.
