USEFUL LINKS AND CREDIBLE SOURCES OF INFORMATION
There is a lot of different information circulating in these intense times. Therefore it is very important that we are exposed to the right amount and source of information.
The World Health Organisation recommend to minimize watching, reading or listening to news that causes you to feel anxious or distressed; seek information only from trusted sources and mainly to take practical steps to prepare your plans and protect yourself and loved ones. Seek information updates at specific times during the day, once or twice. The sudden and near-constant stream of news reports about an outbreak can cause anyone to feel worried. Get the facts, not the rumors and misinformation. Gather information at regular intervals, from WHO website and local health authorities' platforms, in order to help you distinguish facts from rumors. Facts can help to minimize fears.
