Since July 2020, Internews’ Rooted in Trust project has collected close to 20,000 rumours from seven project countries: Afghanistan, Lebanon, Philippines, Colombia, Central African Republic, Mali, and Sudan. We work in 12 local languages and collect data across seven major social media platforms and a wide range of feedback collection channels, including door-to-door surveys, informal meetings, assessments, community meetings, listening groups, SMS, and radio call-in shows.
These Global Rumour bulletins look at key trends across our focal countries and aim to support humanitarian and health workers, media and other communicators to understand the beliefs, fears and misperceptions behind common rumours about COVID-19 and the impact of the pandemic.
