In a March 22 AP article, Jessica Justman, MD, ICAP’s senior technical director, advises readers to visit the CDC and WHO websites for the most reliable information about COVID-19:
Dr. Jessica Justman, an infectious disease expert at Columbia University, said the sheer amount of information online about the coronavirus pandemic can quickly become overwhelming. That’s one reason she encourages people to check the websites of the CDC and the WHO.
“It’s not just misinformation, it’s also a lack of good information,” Justman said. “There’s so much information out there that many people are just saying ‘I can’t read it, it makes me too anxious.’”
“Go straight to the source,” she said. “The CDC has been putting out great information.”
