How to Report Misinformation Online

This fact sheet offers nine social media platforms on which one may report misinformation about COVID-19.

The sheet is a product of cooperation between national heatlh authorities and the World Health Organization (WHO), which began with the joint Stop the Spread campaign in May-June 2020. “Stop the Spread” encouraged the use of trusted sources such as WHO and national health authorities for accurate COVID-19 information.

The new phase of the joint campaign focuses on proactively identifying and reporting potentially wrong or misleading information, as part of WHO’s efforts to address the spread of inaccurate and harmful information during the pandemic.
