Misinformation

Mis- and disinformation can be harmful to people’s physical and mental health; increase stigmatization; threaten precious health gains; and lead to poor observance of public health measures, thus reducing their effectiveness and endangering countries’ ability to stop the pandemic.

Misinformation costs lives. Without the appropriate trust and correct information, diagnostic tests go unused, immunization campaigns (or campaigns to promote effective vaccines) will not meet their targets, and the virus will continue to thrive.

"False information that is spread, regardless of intent to mislead.” Put a flag in the second half of this definition; it will be important later." Dictionary.com

MidInformation

MidInformation: Informational ambiguity based on scant or conflicting evidence, often about emerging scientific knowledge.
