So watch out for the infodemic. If you’re not careful, the powers-that-shouldn’t-be are going to take care of this “problem” of the “abundance of information” by making sure you only ever get your information from approved sources.

It’s silent. It’s deadly. It’s spreading all around the globe. And, if you’re not careful, it’ll get you next!
The viral pandemic? No, silly! The viral infodemic.
Haven’t you heard? There’s a tsunami of fake news that’s coming to get you! And if you plebs don’t behave properly then your rulers are just going to have to shut down the internet for your own good.
If you haven’t heard the term “infodemic” yet, then lucky you. But trust me, you’re going to be hearing about this idea ad nauseum in the coming months, so you better get prepared.
So what is an infodemic, exactly? Good question. Let’s turn to everybody’s favorite global health agency, the World Health Organization, for that answer, shall we?
