You can help stop spreading coronavirus right now, by being a bit more careful what you share.
A recent study conducted by University of East Anglia shows that misinformation contributes to diseases spreading faster (so when people believe eating garlic helps - alas, it doesn’t - they don’t take other necessary precautions). Reducing misleading tips just by 10% already helps fewer people get sick.
So, if every time you are about to share something on social media/whatsapp, you take a few seconds to double check it using credible sources (for example WHO myth busters), you are literally saving lives. Please, stay healthy and mindful of your impact!
