Surgeon general launches effort to get to the bottom of Covid-19 misinformation
(CNN) The office of US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a request Thursday for information surrounding health misinformation, seeking input and data from tech companies, health care providers, and community organizations.
The request seeks to understand the scope and impact of misinformation on Covid-19 – especially when it comes to health care and people’s willingness to get vaccinated.
“Misinformation has had a profound impact on Covid-19 and our response,” Murthy told CNN. “Studies have demonstrated that the vast majority of the American public either believes common myths about Covid-19 or thinks those myths might be true. And many of those include myths around the Covid-19 vaccine, so we’ve seen firsthand how misinformation is harming people’s health when it comes to Covid.”
COME AGAIN? The people in our government (like Fauci) who lied and lied and lied to the American people about masks, lockdowns, effective treatments, school closures, are trying to identify and discredit the organizations that misinformed the public about Covid? Sure, there was much misinformation in the media, but nothing that compares with the wrongful statements made by the U.S. government.
