EJN Panel shares expert tips for journalists on tackling COVID-19 misinformation

As vaccines effective against the novel Coronavirus begin their global rollout, tackling misinformation, disinformation and earning public confidence could not be more starkly an issue of life and death. 
 
This was the theme of our first panel of the year, held this week, and chaired by EJN trustee and Bureau of Investigative Journalism global editor James Ball, in which experts explored the role of journalists in tackling disinformation, the communicating of public health messages, and online fact-checking during this key phase of response to the Coronavirus pandemic. 

What should journalists do to tackle misinformation, where are such myths coming from, and how can reporters avoid inadvertently becoming vectors for health misinformation? Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter, Kate Wilkinson, Nina Jankowicz, Anjana Ahuja and Marianna Spring joined Ball to share their insights.

The Ethical Journalism Network has compiled a list of seven tips for journalists covering pandemics. The Covid-19 crisis has underscored how essential accurate and factual news is, and conversely the damage that can be done by the spread of unethical and inaccurate information. These points are offered by the Ethical Journalism Network, in a similar format to previous infographics to support journalists faced with reporting on hate speech or covering migration issues.
