Facebook deletes Brazilian President Coronavirus Misinfo’s post:
Facebook has shifted from Brazilian President Zaire Bolzonaro not to seek out false politicians to keep the deadly coronavirus idea from spreading. “Hydroxychloroquine is effective in all areas,” according to Facebook’s decision to remove the video shared by Bolzonaro. Although the drug status has been tested to determine its effectiveness in treating COVID-19, neither researchers nor health authorities have investigated it.
“We remove content on Facebook and Instagram that violate our community norms and do not allow harmful false information,” a Facebook spokesperson told TechCrunch. Facebook specifically denies the false claim of treatment, treatment, availability of needed services and the spread or spread of infectious diseases.
BBC News Brazil reported the first Portuguese land draw in Portugal today. In the deleted video, Bolsonaro spoke with a street vendor who said they “want to work” in contravention of the World Health Organization’s recommendation to engage in community engagement. He also followed “there, shit, hydroxychloroquine, everywhere.”
If people mistakenly believe that there is effective management of COVID-19, they don’t care about being exposed, going to work, or refusing to live alone. This causes the virus to spread rapidly, curve-reduction efforts fail, and health care systems fail.
That is why Twitter deleted Bolzonaro’s tweets with Rudy Giuliani in order to avoid spreading false information. But so far, Facebook has left a judgment on the validity of claims against politicians. It refused to post factual political statements, including Donald Trump’s.
Last week, Facebook said the indirect COVID-19 “could cause physical harm” and could be removed and removed immediately after any other outbreak from 2018, sending unforeseen emergencies that are not directly related to the nature of the damage. Forensic investigators say Facebook access to those posts is limited.
The question now is whether Facebook will agree to make this claim for Trump, who has been criticized for spreading false information about the severity of the outbreak, possible treatment and the risk of sending people to work. Facebook fears the backlash of conservative politicians and citizens who have exposed fake news to discriminate or google their posts.
