Given all of the misinformation being shared about COVID this is such an important topic! I wish people were better at telling when information ins fact or fiction – we need more education at the primary level and more regulation of information sharing platforms! Thanks for sharing this!
It is so scary to think that the solution to this is preventative as opposed to retroactive. It seems like once the belief is formed it is very difficult to change which is terrifying given how much false information is out there.
Nice work in presenting an important topic in a way that is clear and accessible. Unlike people spreading misinformation, you have shared real insights supported by facts.
