DELETED: Facebook Removes Trump’s Post About Covid

Misinformation Prevention.

Facebook removed a post from President Trump in which he falsely claimed that Covid-19 is less deadly than the seasonal flu.

Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone confirmed the company removed the post on Tuesday for breaking its rules on Covid-19 misinformation.

Trump also posted the same message on Twitter.  That post is still up, but Twitter has stated that the tweet also violates their company’s rule on misleading information.

Back in August, both Facebook and Twitter removed an additional post by Trump for containing a false claim that children are “almost immune” to the virus.

Did you see any of these posts? What have your thoughts on Covid-19 been throughout this pandemic?
