Countering the Coronavirus-related “Infodemic”: Sharing Best Practices

November 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm BMT

Since February 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has created an “Infodemic” which has created a challenge for countries trying to tackle issues of disinformation, misinformation and too much information. 

A spike in COVID-19  related “fake news” is placing communities in very vulnerable positions resulting in risk to public health. In Thailand one challenge wrought by the pandemic is the circulation of fake news about preventive measures, possible clusters and false reports of patients. In Taiwan, its response to fake news was through a mixture of  accountability and transparency, information correction and the respect for human rights and rule of law. Collectively, these factors have contributed to effective crisis communication, panic prevention, and public trust in the government’s responses. This seminar brings speakers from both jurisdictions to share best practices on how best to shield communities from the negative effects of COVID-19  spurred “Infodemic”.
