Hi everyone, I'm wondering about the interaction between conspiracy theories/misinformation and research.

For example, trump saying Hydroxichloroquine being effective against COVID. It took months if I remember correctly before its use was proved to detrimental.

In the fast-paced media spotlight of today, how long do these claims linger around in academic research? Is research still being conducted on this?
