False News and Disinformation
Digital hub aims to unite stakeholders from Latin America and the Caribbean in fight against disinformation around COVID-19

False News and Disinformation
Brazilian newspapers under pressure for publishing ad that promotes unproven COVID-19 treatments

At least eight Brazilian newspapers published an advertorial in which an obscure association of doctors defends the adoption of a so-called 'early treatment' of COVID-19, whose benefit is not scientifically proven. The decision of the newspaper companies to open space, albeit an advertising one, for the transmission of false information about the pandemic generated criticism.
