A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has emphasized the importance of maintaining at least a 6-foot distance from others in order to prevent the spread of misinformation about the novel coronavirus.
Citing nationwide efforts to “flatten the curve,” CDC director Robert Redfield implored Americans to stay as far away from each other as possible in order to minimize fake news transmission. Officials also urged Americans to self-silence for 14 days should they come into contact with false information.
“Even if someone is not showing symptoms, they may be a carrier,” explained Redfield in a recent statement.
According to sources, numerous cases were traced back to sensationalist Facebook articles sent to friends and family after the sender only read the headline, as well as frequent usage of foxnews.com.
“If you begin to experience paranoia, herbal remedies, or a Google search history that shows ‘hydroxychloroquine,’ there is a good chance you may have contracted unfactual counsel on the coronavirus,” confirmed Redfield.
At press time, the CDC was recommending that all Americans wear face masks in public to muffle the inaccurate speech of the average U.S. citizen.
