Afternoon Drive with John Maytham

Guest: Kate Thompson-Davy Freelance journalist and an impactAFRICA fellow, Kate Thompson Davy, writing in the Business Day yesterday speaks about the so-called 'dirty dozen" pedding most of the anti-vaccination conspiracies on social media. Her information is based on a report published earlier this year but the Centre for Countering Digital Hate which analysed anti-vax content shared on Facebook and Twitter for a month and a half. It found that almost two-thirds of the content could be traced back to the accounts of just 12 people.
