Highlights

All around the world, people are taking necessary steps to protect themselves and their families from the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), to support their communities, and prevent the spread of the outbreak.

Unfortunately, while many people are sharing information about the virus and how to protect against it, not all of it is correct. Misinformation and a lack of information during a health crisis can spread paranoia, fear, and stigma, and result in people not being protected or doing things that can hurt themselves and others.

The outbreak has also left many people feeling worried, isolated, lonely and stressed. More than ever, we all need to raise awareness, build solidarity, support each other, and be kind.

Inspired by the actions of young people across the world we’ve compiled a set of actions that anyone can take to join the fight against misinformation and stigma, and to promote community support and spirit.
