We are inundated with information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, and in this information tsunami, it is often difficult to distinguish fact from fiction.  In this series of events, panels of experts will be discussing how fake news is changing our world, how we can discern between what is real and what is not, and tease out some of the problems with current mainstream conspiracy theories.
