Navigating Fake News in a Pandemic
Navigating Fake News in a Pandemic was the theme of FCAM’s recent webinar, with Prof. Kiranjit Kaur from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), and the Institute of Public Relations Malaysia. Prof Kaur spoke about the spread of rumours that followed the outbreak of Covid-19, and how they sparked fear, divisiveness, and often confusion among people. Such rumours include; taking a hot bath, or eating garlic, can help protect you from catching the virus! One outcome from the webinar was certain; only check trusted websites for your information.
