Here, we are in not only in the pandemic also we are in infodemic too. In some ways, the information about Covid-19 with regards to how it spreads and what are the steps to preventive measures are seems misguiding and misrepresenting. And when it comes to vaccines, people aren’t sure about how far vaccines are ready?
Even more my extreme apologize to say, certain people thinks Covid-19 is a hoax.
The above statements which I delivered are so far I read through different sources. That makes to write. I never do propaganda with this issues or any issues.
As a writer, I do deliver my words legitimately and rationally. I am not an arrogant writer or writing for the sake of “just writing”.
Clarity is required. So, here we need more fact-check on every news. We need clarity on not only this issues, but each and every issues in the present times and the future too.
My respected readers, you could do your own research on fact-check. Over the last five days, you could see my posts on related to fake news, fact-check and infodemic. You can have a look. And please go farther.
I read an article in There’s no vaccine for the infodemic – so how can we combat the virus of misinformation? From World Economic Forum.
I would sincerely encourage the readers to go through the full article.

What is spreading across the globe, can be passed on unwittingly from one person to countless others, is potentially deadly, yet can be stopped if everyone takes the right steps?
Heard of the miracle cure for COVID that the mainstream media doesn’t want you to know about? Or that the pandemic is in fact a ‘plandemic’ – deliberately created to make someone a fortune or to subjugate the masses? Then you’ve come up against the virus of misinformation that has spread around the world as fast as the coronavirus itself.
In a world where social media is increasingly where most of us get so much of our information, and where we value freedom of speech as a cornerstone of democracy, what can be done to combat dangerous misinformation?
The UN is also encouraging us to stop rushing to re-post potentially dubious content, promoting the hashtag #PledgetoPause.
“We’re trying to create this new social norm called ‘pause – take care before you share’,” Fleming says. “We’re equipping people, through this new social norm, with a bit of ‘information scepticism’.”
The UN is also encouraging social media influencers to help spread real news about the pandemic.
