The COVID-19 pandemic has been accompanied by an equally dangerous “infodemic” — an onslaught of misinformation which threatens our ability to find trustworthy sources and reliable guidance. It's something that Timothy Caulfield fights against as a UAlberta professor of law, research director of its Health Law Institute, author and documentary TV host. Listen as Tim helps us unravel the many conspiracy theories surrounding the pandemic, and separate fact from fiction once and for all.
This episode was recorded on June 11, 2020. At the time, there were 7,167 cases of Covid-19 in Alberta.
