He said A Facebook spokesperson today, Saturday: Facebook has frozen the page of Venezuelan President (Nicolas Maduro), for violating policies that prohibit publishing false information about the Corona virus by promoting a treatment that it claims without evidence that it can cure the disease.
In January, Maduro described Carvativir, an oral solution derived from thyme, as a miracle drug that eliminates the Corona virus without any side effects, a claim that doctors say is not backed by science.
Facebook has removed a video clip in which Maduro promotes the drugs because it is violating a policy against false claims that something can guarantee the prevention of infection with the Coronavirus or can guarantee recovery from the Coronavirus.
The spokesman told Reuters: We follow the WHO guidelines that say: There is currently no drug to treat the virus, and given the repeated violations of our rules, we have also frozen the page for 30 days, during which it will be available for reading only.
Maduro says in the video: Carvativir, which he calls the miracle drops of the Venezuelan doctor of the nineteenth century (Jose Gregorio Hernandez) Jose Gregorio Hernandez, can be used in a preventive and curative way against the Corona virus
A Facebook spokesperson said: The page administrators have been notified of the policy violation, andMaduro’s account will not be affected by the Instagram photo-sharing social media platform, which is owned by Facebook.
In February, Maduro said: “The censored Facebook videos of Carvatever appear in it.”
He has said in the past that he and his allies have been unfairly treated by social media companies, including what he calls arbitrary account suspensions.
Maduro frequently uses social media, including Facebook and Twitter, and has occasionally broadcast speeches via Facebook Live.
As of Friday, official figures for Venezuela showed 154,905 cases of coronavirus and 1,543 deaths, although his opposition critics say the actual number is likely higher due to limited testing.
