Deaf Community Creates New Solutions for Misinformation, Isolation During Pandemic

From White House press briefings where top officials offer contradictory advice to social media feeds riddled with incorrect or competing information, the coronavirus pandemic has become a communications challenge as much as a health care crisis. For those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, the problem is made worse by a lack of resources at every level of government, as well as within the healthcare system, according to Chris Soukup, CEO of Communication Service for the Deaf (CSD). To this day, he said, there are no language interpreters at White House press briefings. "We've seen a lot of mayors, a lot of governors that have included that practice momentarily and have been very responsive," Soukup told Cheddar. "We've had some challenges in creating that same awareness in the White House."
