The third set of reports on the ‘Fighting COVID-19 Disinformation Monitoring Programme’ is out!

Last month, the European Commission published the third set of reports, provided by the signatories of the Code of Practice on Disinformation as part of the COVID-19 monitoring and reporting programme. These reports highlight the actions taken in September 2020 by the Code’s platform signatories, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, TikTok and Mozilla, to limit disinformation on COVID-19.

As the Commission states, ‘the monitoring programme is a transparency measure called for in the 10 June 2020 Joint Communication “Tackling COVID-19 disinformation – Getting the facts right”. Its aim is to ensure accountability towards the public, by reporting on the efforts made by platforms and relevant industry associations to limit online disinformation related to COVID-19.
