As a part of our project, we do our best to reflect the current situation caused by a prevalence of COVID-19 in many countries. The spread of disease is unfortunately also accompanied with a spread of number misinformation as well as disinformation, that many times influence how people act and decide.

In order to contribute to prevention and elimination of negative consequences that are caused my many case of false information, we utilized our research platform Monant and created a tool CovidMis.info

CovidMis.info aggregates a number of fact checking articles related to COVID-19 from multiple fact checking sites (e.g., fullfact.org, snopes.com). It provides statistics, links between fact checks and links of fact checks to news articles found on the Web.

Slovak version is available at CovidDez.info.
