Coronavirus (943) Definition of infodemic (23)

24 August, 2020

Thank you for breaking down the definition. You have rightfully pointed out that the sheer volume of information is an on-going problem. As a clinician, I know that during the pandemic we found it incredibly overwhelming to have what felt like hundreds of new guidelines, papers and general bits of advice sent to us from all over the world everyday. Categorised data would have allowed us to select what was relevant for the time and situation we were facing.
