Behind the scenes
One of the reasons why we created the COVID-19 Facts portal is so that we can share the facts that we’ve checked and the myths that we’ve debunked. We’re also keen to share HOW we go about our work, in case it’s helpful for you to know – or you’re just curious.
How we fact-checked this claim: "Pandemics are cyclical and occur every 100 years"
It takes about one week to produce a fact-checked article when we’re not dealing with an urgent topic. This is because we have a strict workflow with several stop gaps, to ensure a high-quality and accurate text in French and in English.
