Abstract

Plenty of disinformation about the pandemic is circulating. But Maria Kyriakidou, Marina Morani, Nikki Soo and Stephen Cushion (Cardiff University) find that the public are good at spotting and dismissing it. Instead, they criticise confusing journalism and contradictory information from government, with many expressing dismay at the reporting of death rates and PPE shortages.
