Pandemic Emergency Is Lifted. Will Disinformation Spreaders Move On?

Eva & Daiva @ The Inoculation

The WHO has declared that the COVID-19 pandemic is no longer a public health emergency of international concern. But does it mean that spreaders of pandemic disinformation have dispersed and gone dormant?

We discuss the persistence of pandemic disinformation with Tommaso Canetta, who works at Pagella Politica/Facta in Italy. He also edits regular fact-checking briefs for the European Digital Media Observatory. These briefs compare how much disinformation on the pandemic, climate, and other topics is tackled by fact-checkers in Europe.
