Is fake news a deadly threat during the pandemic?
For many people the pandemic has been their first experience of witnessing the scientific method first hand. As the scientific community has rapidly investigated the novel coronavirus, government policy and recommendations have changed in response to emerging evidence.
This week the show is taken over by Elizabeth College students Harrison, Sarah and Angela who interview Associate Professor Darren Saunders about the impact of misinformation on the pandemic.
This is part of a 3-part series for National Science Week Tasmania 2020. The team are running a webinar with leading experts in science, technology and engineering to discuss how we arm ourselves against fake news and phonies!
