Covishaala Media Literacy Masterclasses

Helping you to tackle the coronavirus infodemic in India

Over four lakh Indians have so far lost their lives to the Coronavirus pandemic that has affected billions of people worldwide. With over 3 crore people having tested positive in the country, India is one of the top three most affected countries in the world. Adding to the surging numbers is the ‘infodemic’ of fake news and misinformation, fuelling vaccine hesitancy.

To address this problem, Logically and NewsMobile are launching ‘Covishaala’, a pan-India training campaign in media literacy. With an aim of reaching 50 million people, our course will ‘train the trainers’ in order to educate people about identifying misinformation around COVID-19 and how to tackle fake narratives regarding the pandemic - delivering an impactful and scalable training course to help curb the spread of misinformation and COVID-19 in India.

‘Covishaala’ will focus on empowering trainers with a sophisticated understanding of the contemporary media literacy landscape and providing robust strategies to translate that understanding into actionable advice, applicable and accessible to any audience in India. It also aims to help people build media literacy skills and identify trustworthy sources for information and potential misinformation around COVID-19.


Each session will be delivered by trained members of Logically and Newsmobile, organisations that have front-line expertise in counter-misinformation operations, along with medical professionals and domain experts.

“Too often, media literacy programmes do not reach those most in need, which is why Covishaala has been designed specifically to target those most vulnerable to false news, rumours and narratives. By empowering influential leaders and experts with the information and strategies they need to help people in their communities, we can make a demonstrable and scalable impact against damaging COVID-19 misinformation. We’re grateful for the support of our partners, Facebook and NewsMobile, in making this programme possible. Media literacy needs to be a priority; COVID-19 misinformation is threatening lives, and we must act now to combat it.”
