Twitter and misinformation: In cases like this pandemic, good information is life-saving (3)

9 December, 2022

Thank you Julie for referring to the post. In fact misinformation is becoming a business of its own. It’s really most damaging to see doctors (health workers in general) are put a side.

Digital is one solution, as long as information provided by reliable sources such as WHO or Ministries of Health around the world.
