Cochrane Talks Infodemic

Cochrane Responds to the Infodemic

The World Health Organization defines an infodemic as “overabundance of information – some accurate and some not – that occurs during an epidemic. It can lead to confusion and ultimately mistrust in governments and public health response”. This has been a particular challenge during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Senior Officer, Tiffany Duque, explains the current 'Infodemic', how to manage it, and how Cochrane is responding in this short video. https://www.cochrane.org/news/cochrane-us-talks-about-overabundance-information-and-how-cochrane-responding-infodemic
