As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the challenge of an over-abundance of misinformation related to the virus, its symptoms, spreadability, and vaccines is growing. Not all the information you come across might be true, and it could be potentially harmful in some cases. As scientists and researchers across the globe are studying and learning more about preventative measures to get the virus under control, we should continue to refrain ourselves from information or plausible cures, which may not have originated from reliable sources or vetted by a healthcare provider. 

Inaccurate information from a non-medical source spreads far and wide making it more difficult for people to filter facts and trusted sources. 

If you have any doubts or questions, talk to your doctor/healthcare provider. Don’t let misleading information put your friends and family at risk! 

  • Stay away from mass circulation of false cures on social media.
  • In some cases, home remedies may help you to improve your overall immunity, but may not protect you from the virus or cure it.
  • Focus on facts. Don’t spread rumours. 
  • Always check or ask for the sources of information.
  • Read and listen to resources from reliable sources such as Health Canada and Federal and Provincial announcements.
