Misleading info in 25% of most viewed YouTube COVID-19 videos

More than one in four of the most viewed English-speaking COVID-19 videos on YouTube contain misleading or inaccurate information, according to researchers from the University of Ottawa.
Public health misinformation on COVID-19 is reaching far more people than in previous pandemics such as the swine flu (HIN1) pandemic and the Ebola and Zika outbreaks and has considerable potential for harm, they warn. Organizations may consider implementing educational sessions to help residents, members and family assess what they're seeing and hearing in the media.
