Belgian police track and trace fake corona news

Saturday, 29 August 2020

The federal police in Belgium has created a squad of 21 officers whose job is to track fake news on the internet and elsewhere, according to Het Nieuwsblad.

Fake news is considered different from simply false information. While mistakes can be made, fake news is false information deliberately invented to sow confusion, either for personal or political gain or simply for fun.
