New Book by Scholars – Professor Wei Ran


《Miscommunicating the COVID-19 Pandemic: An Asian Perspective》
Editor: Professor Wei Ran, Chair Professor in Communication of the Department of Communication Studies and Associate Dean (Research and Development) of the School of Communication

This book tackles the infodemic—the rapid, widespread diffusion of false, misleading, or inaccurate information about the disease and its ramifications—triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. With a focus on four Asian societies, the book compares and analyses the spread of COVID-19 misinformation and its broad impacts on the public in Beijing, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Singapore. Providing both a comprehensive overview of the phenomenon of misinformation and cross-societal analyses of patterns, the book features in-depth analyses of the prevalence of COVID-19 misinformation and engagement and explores its consequences in an Asian context.
