Abstract: WHO has declared that COVID-19 is going to remain with us as do other endemics (like HIV). Therefore, scientifically validated information and its dissemination is extremely important for the future. The naeed of the hour is to develop a policy mechanism to deal with the creation and proliferation of such (mis)information without any scientific inputs. The lack of scientific temper among the people leads to panic situations and such unverified information may further increase the chances of nervousness, anxiety and hypertension.
