Google said that it's providing more than $6.5 million in funding to fact-checkers and nonprofits fighting misinformation around the world, with an immediate focus on the coronavirus.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Google wants to be proactive throughout the coronavirus crisis to support the spread of accurate and safe information.

Google, and many of its Big Tech rivals, have been criticized for not doing enough in the past to elevate quality information during breaking news events and crises.

As a result, many of those companies, especially Google, are throwing millions of dollars at journalism and small business initiatives amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

Google says that in the coming weeks, it will launch a dedicated fact-check section in the COVID-19 News page for India and the U.S., with more countries to come.
