Uno de los tantos desafíos que impone el brote del coronavirus, calificado como pandemia por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), es ofrecer información certera y frenar el alcance de los datos engañosos y/o confusos, sobre todo en redes sociales y servicios de mensajería.
Today @WhatsApp has launched a hub for health workers, educators, small businesses, and others that are using WhatsApp to support one another during this extraordinary crisis. You can check it out here https://t.co/ziwqtvbqXP— Will Cathcart (@wcathcart) March 18, 2020
We’re grateful to @who @undp @unicef for coordinating the response to this crisis including using @WhatsApp to do so. Already several ministries of health are providing updates to citizens on WhatsApp and we will expand these services together.— Will Cathcart (@wcathcart) March 18, 2020
We have also made a $1m donation to @IFCN to expand the presence of local fact checkers on @WhatsApp. There are over a dozen so far, and we want more to be able to do their important work so rumors are identified and countered.— Will Cathcart (@wcathcart) March 18, 2020
