Fake News

Antimicrobial issues are as vulnerable to ‘fake news’ as any other subject, given the number of people and organisations who are looking to sway opinion and influence others. Gwyn Jones at RUMA expresses his opinion about “fake news”, and how certain individuals and organisations confuse the data, often quite deliberately. Therefore, he thinks that when we are reading ‘news’
or ‘information’, we need to also consider the source or check the author, check the whole story and look for expert opinion in this field.
