Fake COVID-19 green passes for sale on French social media

ISD’s Iris Boyer and Zoe Fourel were interviewed by Ouest France regarding their research of the sale of  French COVID-19 vaccination certificates on social media platforms. Posts relating to the sale of fake passe sanitaire were found across Facebook, Instagram and Telegram, including in far-right groups, Yellow Vests mobilisation groups, and in the comments of articles about anti-lockdown protests.

Their research can be found in the Digital Dispatch Les faux pass sanitaires se propagent facilement sur les réseaux sociaux malgré les politiques des plateformes.
