A coalition that includes the Immunisation Foundation of Australia and Doherty Institute is calling on the big technology companies to do more to prevent the sharing of misinformation about COVID-19 online. The coalition is concerned this misinformation is causing a growing mistrust about potential COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general, along with causing a growing number of people to ignore public health directives about social distancing and lockdown measures because they see COVID-19 as being a government-led hoax.
