Online Harms and Disinformation

Inquiry

MPs are calling on members of the public to flag up examples of disinformation and misinformation on social media about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, as part of its investigations.

The DCMS Sub-committee on Online Harms and Disinformation will hold hearings with social media companies among others to focus on what is being done to tackle deliberate attempts to present false narratives about COVID-19.

Examples sent in by members of the public will be considered as evidence to be presented to the Government and to social media companies.
