In a university student survey on COVID-19 information assessment, 66% participants identified the falsehood of all misinformation statements and 66% provided web page URLs that are adequate in supporting statement accuracy assessment. The most cited web resources were government websites (43%) and media reports (30%). Those who identified misinformation falsehood were more likely to have higher GPA and liberal-leaning political views, and to implement evidence-based COVID prevention measures including mask-wearing and not self-medicating on (hydroxy-)chloroquine.
