„It’s really hard to disentangle what is a fact and what is unfact, with all these informations coming. I think everyone has to play a role in the fight with disinformation” – says Sara Cerdas from the European Parliament.
The COVID-19 pandemic has contributed to an increase in disinformation and fake news. They have become a challenge for all states and their governments. Another problem is the fair division of the vaccines and also guaranteeing the knowledge-based message on them. These are some of the issues raised in the latest episode of EURACTIV.pl’s Disinformation Series.
We invited Sara Cerdas, Medical Doctor and the Member of the Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament, to discuss the European Union pandemic policy, vaccines and the impact of the spread of the COVID-19 disinformation on democracy.
The interview was conducted by Karolina Zbytniewska.
Kinga Wysocka was the publisher of this episode.
