Wiki For COVID-19
Wiki For COVID-19 is an online initiative for increasing awareness of the ongoing pandemic (COVID-19) and tackling misinformation spreading at an alarming rate meanwhile promoting Wikimedia projects. Basically, the idea behind this is to aware people through promotional videos so that they can gather reliable information on Wikipedia.
This project will be the first of it's kind in this pandemic that will promote Wikipedia and increase public awareness about COVID-19 at the same time. The project's idea has been brought for tackling the fake news spreading on social media through various fake news channels.
The project aims at producing three videos that will create awareness about COVID-19 which will be revolving around Wikimedia Projects. The videos will help in increasing awareness about the pandemic and reduce the stress among people caused due to fake news spreading at an alarming rate. The three videos will highlight the reliable news on COVID-19 available on Wikipedia and also Commons, where people can get a virtual tour to beautiful places in this lockdown period where people are quarantined in their homes. The video will give tasks to the viewers where they will have to make a video answering questions like how they gather or used to gather information on COVID-19, how Wikimedia helped in gaining factual information and how learning on Wikipedia helped them dealing with the issues. The entire event remains online and no in-person activities will be conducted considering the safety measures.
We’re not just fighting an epidemic; we’re fighting an infodemic.
