With over 140 entries based on rigorous science and from credible sources, the COVID-19 Glossary is useful to counter misinformation and disinformation and assist journalists in explaining the science behind vaccines and other aspects of the virus and pandemic.
Internews produces and distributes rumor bulletins through its Rooted in Trust and its H2H (humanitarian-to-humanitarian network) projects. Rooted in Trust has collected close to 6,000 rumors from seven countries in 12 languages, and collects data across seven major social media platforms and a wide range of feedback collection channels. H2H is a collaboration to support responders at every level by analyzing information gaps and addressing them with evidence-based content in relevant languages, formats, and channels.
