Antivaxxers between fake news and personal concerns

  • Health

As an investigative team of journalists watched the pandemic unfold in early 2020, their plans for reporting in 15 European countries were scuttled. But they began to see patterns in covid-denialism that mimicked what they had seen with anti-vaxxers. They decided to expand their project to include investigative data journalism to map this new movement.
