Science, pseudoscience and fake news!

  • Joggie Hattingh PSSA

Abstract

Considering the disruption that COVID-19 brought to our everyday lives, the world as we knew it before the pandemic seems to be a very distant and vague memory.

The news media is overwhelmingly focused on COVID-19, state capture and all that is negative. Then there are also those who ride on this wave of doom and gloom by spreading fake news. How many of us have not been caught off guard by fake news? Maybe even momentarily, before we realised that we were being taken for a ride?
