Get the facts about Covid-19

The word "Infodemic" was coined by a political scientist in 2003 when referring to the SARS epidemic, and has recently been used by the World Health Organization. It means “an overabundance of information – some accurate and some not – that makes it hard for people to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance when they need it.” A good word for all of us to learn! And yep, we're talking about the coronavirus.
