COVID - 19: Myths and Misconceptions

Last Updated: August 18, 2020


This videographic was created by four second-year medical students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as part of a COVID-19 elective course. It details "9 popular myths” about the coronavirus pandemic as well as scientific concepts or research that debunk those myths. The video is intended to be viewed and shared on social media by the general public, and thus it was created to be accessible to various education levels.
