CGTN published this video item, entitled “How ‘infodemic’ killed 1 million in America” – below is their description.
This special show breaks down the reasons behind the United States reaching its tragic milestone this month – 1 million deaths. Was it COVID-19 alone that was responsible? Something else spread as fast – disinformation. Politicians and some media fanned ignorance, encouraging anti-vaxxers and anti-mask activists. The healthcare industry sought to profit from people’s suffering, following “a model of greed.” And racism led to greater deaths among African Americans, Latin Americans and Native Americans. The ordeal is not over yet. In May, new cases have started spiking again. Is there a cure? Watch the show to find out.CGTN YouTube Channel
