Tracking Report: Digital Platform Responses to Misinformation During the Pandemic

“We’ve created this tool to monitor how digital platforms are responding to misinformation related to the pandemic. We’ll be regularly updating it with new reports. 

The World Health Organization’s director-general has said that “disinformation is as dangerous as COVID-19”[1]. Public Knowledge has initiated monitoring of the approaches of the major digital platforms to respond to the crisis. Our goal is to provide current and accurate updates in the hope the information may help shape policy responses to the pandemic. For each report, updates are marked with NEW (in the narrative) or the date of communication (in the chart)”
