What is the best resource you’ve seen about COVID-19? DW news channel

Is a complex topic, but I watched in the National German Channel DW a documentary about how Finland people teach in schools how to recognise fake news, one of the activities include this game that every knows as the "telephone" where a teacher gave a message a kid and then this kid should repeat the same at their ears and so on, at the end the kids were able to talk about their conclusions and they were fully aware of the problem it cause miss information.

I think that if people grow with this lessons is a complete mindset, but maybe is time to relearn.
