Confusion and disinformation have been a feature of the COVID-19 pandemic. The press has tried to plough through an avalanche of information to illustrate the situation from various perspectives, but a focus on day-to-day coverage combined with a lack of access to diverse and reliable sources has complicated the task.
UNDRR organised this webinar to help raise awareness that the pandemic is more than just a health issue. It involves systemic risk and its cascading impact around the world.
