Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden’s chief medical advisor, stated that the Disease now considered to be historical such as smallpox, and polio would have continued to spread in the United States if today’s scenario of false information prevailed then.
Currently, Disease such as smallpox and polio have been almost completely eradicated all across the world. However, this range of accomplishment would have probably been impossible if the now prevailing amount of resistance towards getting vaccinated would have existed then.
The advisory urgently appealed to technology and social media organizations to focus their efforts to encounter the release of misinformation on their platforms. It asks them to modify and redesign algorithms in a way that restricts the expansion of misinformation whilst strengthening monitoring. Murthy’s persistent efforts are aligned with the increasing COVID-19 concerns with new delta variants spreading across the United States. The country has particularly witnessed a massive bubble of negativity surrounding the vaccine, ultimately declining the vaccination rate.
