During the coronacrisis, access to timely and accurate information has proven vital – for decision-makers as well as concerned citizens. Amidst a constant flood of information, it is difficult for non-professionals to know which news are fake and which can be trusted.
Technological innovations can not only help to fight against Covid-19 and also fake news surrounding it. One of the most popular is covidtracker.5lab.co, an online map that provides information on the spread of Covid-19 in Thailand. It features an interactive map with regular updates on the number and location of cases, as well as revealing false reports about the contagion. A Covidtracker mobile app is in the pipeline.
