How COVID-19 misinformation is created and shared worldwide
On 8 April we published a factsheet looking at some of the main types, sources, and claims of COVID-19 misinformation seen so far. We analysed a sample of 225 pieces of misinformation rated false or misleading by fact-checkers and published in English between January and the end of March 2020, drawn from a collection of fact-checks maintained by First Draft.
The lead author of that piece of research is J. Scott Brennen, Research Fellow at the Reuters Institute.
