COVID-19 information and vulnerable communities (4) Misinformation

27 March, 2020

Hi Ben,

Many thanks for your observations. I would be really interested to hear more about misinformation. Can you give an example? In other countries we have heard how the social media (WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook) has enabled rapid spread of false information about how to prevent and treat coronavirus. I expect this is happening in Zambia also?

Best wishes, Neil
