Facebook Inc’s Instagram said on Tuesday it would remove coronavirus-related content and accounts from recommendations and its “explore” option unless posted by or belonging to credible health organizations.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Last week, Twitter Inc barred users from posting misleading information about the new coronavirus, including denials of expert guidance and encouragement of fake treatments, tightening its normally lax rules around speech.

“We will also start to downrank content in feed and Stories that have been rated false by third-party-fact checkers,” the photo-sharing platform added.

Facebook, earlier this month, said it would provide free advertisements to the World Health Organization (WHO) as it seeks to ensure users are not misinformed about the virus, its risks and how to react to it.
