Facebook removes false information about coronavirus and vaccine, will start worldwide campaign
Facebook has announced to expand its efforts to remove false claims about Covid-19 and its vaccines on its own platform and Instagram. The expanded list of false claims related to Covid-19 and vaccines will be removed, including Coronavirus is man-made and vaccines are not effective at preventing the disease that is designed to protect from the spread of the virus. It is safer to suffer from the disease than the vaccine because Covid-19 vaccines are dangerous, toxic or cause autism.
Facebook will inform people about vaccination
The social network site said in a statement late Monday that the move was taken after consultations with major health organizations including WHO. It was started in the US this week. Facebook will facilitate links to health websites for local people at the Corona Information Center to help people understand if they are eligible for vaccination and how to do so. Facebook informed that as more information becomes available in the coming weeks, we will continue to expand this feature to more countries and make it easier for people to see where and when they can vaccinate in just a few steps.
A worldwide campaign will begin for vaccination
Believing in vaccines and building trust is important so we are launching the largest worldwide campaign to encourage public health organizations to share accurate information about corona vaccines and encourage people to vaccinate as vaccines are available to people. In addition, Facebook is also giving $120 million in ad credits to help ministries of health, NGOs and UN agencies to help the Covid-19 vaccine and health information reach billions of people around the world. We will soon bring the Covid-19 Information Center on Instagram so that people can get the latest information about vaccines from our apps.
