We the Bloggers Association of Kenya (BAKE) in partnership with the DW Akademie, the EU in Kenya and Baraza Media Lab will tomorrow, 15th of December 2021 host an event to discuss on Covid-19 Response in Africa.

Some of the issues that will be highlighted in the event include:

  • Covid-19 vaccination in Kenya.
  • The role of tech companies in amplifying misinformation and disinformation that surrounds the covid-19 pandemic.
  • The impact of Covid-19 on small businesses

The COVID-19 pandemic clearly demonstrated how the spread of misinformation, amplified on social media and other digital platforms, is a threat to global public health even more than the virus itself.

Especially in the early days of the pandemic, social media brewed a lot of disinformation that has partly continued to undermine the response measures to control the pandemic.

The event encompasses experts from various fields in the media space and the government to offer their expert opinions on the various topics of discussion. To attend the event, please register here
