Combating Misinformation: The COVID-19 Dashboard

“There is a lot of information out there — good, bad and ugly. It has become difficult to separate truth from fiction even though facts are out there.” Center Co-Director Dr. Vish Viswanath convened a working group to provide practical and accurate information on COVID-19, producing a COVID-19 Dashboard accessible through SANCHAR (Science and News: Communicating Health and Research). The COVID-19 Dashboard — which targets journalists, non-governmental organizations, and other community members — aims to bring together credible COVID-19 related information that is easy to access, understand and act upon. Resources include a list of common Myths vs Facts, as well as a guide to responsible social media use in the age of COVID-19. In addition, Dr. Viswanath spoke about misinformation at The Atlantic’s health care summit, and in interview with Dr. Audiey Kao (Part 1 and Part 2).
