Infection spreads

“WhatsApp Users Spread Antivaccine Rumors in India,” The Wall Street Journal, April 15, 2019.  False reports from the US on vaccines spreads in India.

Where do you get your news from?  Do you trust the source(s)?  Does the government have a legitimate interest in preventing the spread of rumors that affect health?  What about politics?  What can the platform do to help?  Is this people just using the platform as it was designed?  We don’t hold gun manufacturers responsible for the damage others do with that product, do we?
