ABSTRACT

Combating the Disinfodemic: Working for Truth in the Time of COVID-19 [webpage]   [open html - 0B]

From the Webpage: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] has led to a parallel pandemic of disinformation that directly impacts lives and livelihoods around the world. Falsehoods and misinformation have proven deadly and sowed confusion about life-saving personal and policy choices. [...] The impacts of COVID-19 disinformation are more deadly than disinformation about other subjects, such as politics and democracy. That is why this research, in line with UNESCO's [United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization] role as a laboratory of ideas, coins the term disinfodemic to describe the problem."
