Facebook knows that one of the best ways to beat the current coronavirus pandemic is by providing the people with the right news and quelling fake news. That is why they have started setting up information centers in different countries.

While the social media giant has already started such moves in Africa too, they recently expanded to 17 more countries.

The aim of the information centers will be to work with trusted authorities where verified news and first hand information can be obtained. That will then be relayed to the general public who want to know what is going on locally as regards the pandemic.

With that, the people can also have a verifiable source to look to for all their news items rather than believing everything that comes their way.

On the Facebook app, the COVID-19 information Centre can be seen at the top of the normal news feed. Here, users will get real-time updates from local and national health authorities, as well as global ones like the WHO.

The countries that have just been added to the list are Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cape Verde, Chad, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Kenya, Mali, Mauritania, Nigeria, Senegal, Seychelles, The Democratic Republic of Congo and Togo.
