Many vectors have given rise to worldwide health crises, such as frequent international travel and new strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. While some diseases are easily cured, others pose continued threats to public health.
Public health crises such as COVID-19 demand immediate action, oversight, and public communication to keep misinformation and disinformation at bay. Truths, untruths, and fraud all emerge across the public sphere in rapid succession.
Aside from obvious implications of sickness and death and the dangers of misinformation, public health crises also create opportunities for fraudulent remedies that can often do more harm than the disease itself.
