Fighting Coronavirus Misinformation in South Asia

At this critical hour in the middle of an international public health crisis, it is vital that we get information on the evolving pandemic from trusted sources. Resorting to misinformation on social media or from questionable online sources will lead to panic and aggravate the challenges we are facing on a daily basis. Lives are at stake. The list below is a compilation of country specific resources in South Asia (SAARC member states) providing reliable information on the COVID-19 pandemic. The list will be edited over the next days as more online resources emerge. If you would like to suggest a reliable institutional, open source or journalistic resource in South Asia on the pandemic, please send me an email or DM me on Twitter. Let’s fight public health misinformation in South Asia together!
