Coronavirus (COVID-19) Myth-busting, and Fact-Checking: Please Spread This to Friends and Family

Posted on 22 March 2020

While we are all trying to isolate ourselves to stop the spread of COVID-19, another ugly omnipresent epidemic is spreading — fake news about COVID-19. To help you and your loved ones stay safe from COVID-19 based fake news, we have compiled a list of helpful sources for myth-busting, and fact-checking.

  • World Health Organisation (WHO): The WHO is doing a great job myth busting COVID-19 with science, and generating memes with terrible color schemes. Below we have listed a few examples. You can find the entire list here: WHO Public COVID-19 Myth-busters
