ABSTRACT. Despite the relevance of COVID-19-related misinformation, only limited research has been conducted on this topic. Using and replicating data from Flixed, Gallup, GlobalWebIndex, Knight Foundation, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, and The University of Canberra, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding fabricated and unverified content on social media. The results of a study based on data collected from 4,200 respondents provide support for my research model. Using the structural equation modeling, I gathered and analyzed data through a self-administrated questionnaire.

Keywords: COVID-19; misinformation; social media; perception; communication
