FACTizenship Newsletter | Volume #3

​In last week's newsletter, we ​sent you information and facts about the ​current state of ​knowledge ​on COVID-19. ​This week,​ we expand on that: ​ we ​fact-checked the emergence of an inflammatory disease ​in children, ​potentially related to COVID-19, and a theory suggesting that patients who have recently contracted COVID-19 are more likely to survive because of ​a ​new scientific discovery ​and new treatments. ​

We want to thank the user who ​asked us to fact-check this theory via the Contact Form of COVID19facts.ca portal​. ​ ​You too can send us claims you would like to see fact-checked.
