2022_12_280101 – China and covid” by Gwydion M. Williams is licensed under CC BY 2.0.

The falsity of network community is very strong. The government releases false information to make people believe that they are very responsible and give people an appearance of authority, but in fact a lot of it is false.

When the epidemic was very serious in China, there were many cases in some areas, and many people died every day because of the epidemic, but the information posted on the Internet said that this place was very good and there were no cases.

There was a very real example of an area where people had not left their homes for three years, but the government asked the media to report that the people in the city were very healthy, very well managed, and there were no cases. Such false information often appears on the Internet during an epidemic. There is another example, many schools have positive cases, but the local government requires the school not to report the real information, they do not let the outside world find these things, many students on their social software for help, but are blocked by the school and the government, requiring them to delete the information. In order to protect its image of strict management and good management, and give the public a very good impression, the government does not stop at nothing to release a lot of false information about these diseases.
