Pope Francis Calls Access to Accurate Information on Coronavirus Vaccines a Human Right

From a Washington Post story by Marfa Luisa Paúl and Adela Sulliman headlined “Pope Francis calls access to accurate information on coronavirus vaccines ‘a human right'”:

Pope Francis denounced the “distortion of reality based on fear” that has ripped across the world during thecoronavirus pandemic, but he also called for compassion, urging journalists to help those misled by coronavirus-related misinformation and fake news to better understand the scientific facts.

“We can hardly fail to see that these days, in addition to the pandemic, an ‘infodemic’ is spreading: A distortion of reality based on fear, which in our global society leads to an explosion of commentary on falsified if not invented news,” the leader of the world’s Catholics said.
