Media Monitoring Africa has been tracking disinformation trends on digital platforms since the end of March.
Using the Real411 platform we have analysed disinformation trends that have largely focused on Covid-19. To date, 971 complaints have been submitted to the platform, 96% of which have been assessed by experts and action taken.
This past week we have had complaints dealing with Covid-19 disinformation, as well as a range of complaints about the Real411 system and in particular one of the reviewers.
