The social media site Twitter has launched a search prompt about the coronavirus.
The company has entered into a partnership with the Health Service Executive (HSE) in an attempt to combat misinformation.
The prompt, which users will see on their screens, will remind people to make sure they get information from the best sources.
They have teamed up with the HSE to provide people with the most accurate results.
Twitter says the dedicated search prompt will "ensure that those on the service in Ireland are met with credible, authoritative information first - when they come to the service for information about the #coronavirus."
It says it has seen over 15 million tweets on this topic in the past four weeks, and expects that trend to continue.
"At present, we're not seeing significant coordinated attempts to spread disinformation at scale about this issue.
"However, we will remain vigilant and have invested significantly in our proactive abilities to ensure trends, search, and other common areas of the service are protected from malicious behaviours", it adds.
The prompt is also live in many other regions globally.
Partnerships are in place in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, US, Denmark, Germany, Italy, France, Spain and others.
The company says it will continue to expand "as the need arises."
The move has been welcomed by the CEO of the HSE, Paul Reid.
He says: "We are providing regularly updated information on the HSE website and are working with Twitter to make sure the public get accurate, reliable health information on coronavirus.
"I really welcome their support in signposting people to the content that we have on hse.ie/coronavirus."
