EN Version (2)

Indeed, it was their prioritisation over science-based knowledge and recommendations that had serious consequences for public health. The most common effects of the influence of misinformation campaigns were mainly the failure to wear masks, the use of home medicine, or the refusal of vaccinations. You can read specific examples of these campaigns and their impacts in our new Coffee Beans.
