From the Executive Summary: "Today COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] is a world-wide pandemic.

[...] The purpose of this document is to explore health dis/mis information related to COVID-19. Specifically, this document addresses the following questions: 1. What is the potential impact of dis/mis information to the health and well-being of individuals and how does it complicate emergency response to the COVID-19 health threat? 2. What interventions are currently being implemented to address or slow the spread of dis/mis information related to COVID-19? 3. What are the opportunities to help navigate and address health-related dis/mis information?"
