COVID-19 'Infodemic': A Preliminary Analysis of the Online Conversation Surrounding the Coronavirus Pandemic   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Executive Summary: "This report represents a preliminary analysis of data analyzed by Graphika on the global online conversation surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. The unprecedented volume of misinformation around the coronavirus, spreading both across platforms and across the globe, has yielded unique network structures and has illustrated the virality of mis- and disinformation in crisis situations. A global cacophony of voices is communicating conflicting and politicized information about the coronavirus, further amplified by the organic spread of misinformation from audiences eager to consume and share updates and advice on the coronavirus in a time of mass uncertainty."
