Misinformation Awareness

Information about SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 therapies have long been plagued with misinformation. Some of this misinformation was innocent in origin (e.g., people speculating on the nature of the virus and possible treatments in the absence of reliable data) while there are also many examples of malicious misinformation disseminated for political and/or economic gain.
