Where to go for up-to-date and factual COVID-19 information that you can rely on

Skip to:

We saw that with the rise of COVID-19 cases also came a flood of misinformation and conspiracy theories. These ranged from the funny (e.g. being able to hold your breath for 10 seconds means you don’t have COVID) to the ridiculous (the COVID-19 vaccine will contain a microchip to spy on you). However, some of these, especially those circulating on social media, play on people’s vulnerabilities and can be dangerous. This has prompted governments and the scientific community to work harder on beating the “infodemic” that we see today.

The following are recommended websites and resources that are factual and reliable. These sites use scientific and peer-reviewed information that are updated as new findings and developments become available:
