To contribute to countering misinformation on COVID-19, UNESCO has produced a series of audio messages that can be freely used by radio stations from around the world.

The links are available in multiple languages. It is important that people access accurate and veritable information. The audio messages can be freely downloaded and broadcast by public, private and community radio stations. You can also download this content from the Unesco Audio Resources Portal Please broadcast and share these audio recordings:

#Message 1: Know credible information sources

Disinformation is spreading alongside the new coronavirus. To counter this, it is important to share information that comes from reliable sources, such as health authorities and the World Health Organization During the COVID-19 outbreak, only trust official information sources and credible media outlets. Do not share unverified information. This is a message from UNESCO.

#Message 2: Teach your child MIL

Are you a parent? Now that you are spending more time at home, why not teach your child how to spot false content and rumors? Find a piece of information online that is confirmed as disinformation, and ask your child these questions: Who made this? For whom was this made? Is it from a reliable source?

During the COVID-19 outbreak, only trust official information sources and credible media outlets. Do not share unverified information. This is a message from UNESCO.

#Message 3: Beware of false experts

Has someone you know sent you advice from an unknown expert against coronavirus?

Watch out, the expert may not be an authentic one! One way to manipulate information is through the use of a “false expert”, who can add more credibility to the message. Always verify who that expert is, what their experience on the topic is, and which organization they represent.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, only trust official information sources and credible media outlets. Do not share unverified information. This is a message from UNESCO

#Message 4: Gauge your emotional reaction

When you are scrolling through your news feed, and you read a message about the coronavirus, think about how it makes you feel. Does it make you feel angry? sad? or shocked? Disinformation can be spread through the use of emotion-targeted content. Before sharing or reacting to such content, try to think of where it comes from, who might benefit from it, and who might be hurt from it. Think before clicking. Think before sharing.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, only trust official information sources and credible media outlets. Do not share unverified information. This is a message from UNESCO
