Facebook has blocked the page of the president of Venezuela Nicols Maduro for violating the policies against the dissemination of false information about the coronavirus promoting a remedy that, without evidence, claims that it can cure the disease, a company spokesperson confirmed this Saturday.
Maduro described in January Carvativir, an oral solution derived from thyme, as a “miracle” medicine that neutralizes the coronavirus no side effects, a claim that doctors say is not supported by science.
Facebook has withdrawn a video in which Maduro promotes the drug because it violates a policy against false claims “that something can guarantee the prevention of contracting Covid-19 or it can guarantee recovery. ”
“We follow the guide of the WHO which says there are currently no drugs to cure the virus, “the spokesman told Reuters.” Due to repeated violations of our rules, we will also freeze the page for 30 days, during which it will be read-only. “
A few hundred-year-old “miracle drops”
Maduro in the video says that Carvativir, which he calls “miraculous drops” from the 19th century Venezuelan doctor Jos Gregorio Hernndez, who has been beatified by the Roman Catholic Church, can be used preventively and therapeutically against coronavirus.
The administrators of the page have been notified of the violation of the policy, has affirmed the spokesman of Facebook.
Maduro’s account on the social media platform to share photos Instagram, which is owned by Facebook, will not be affected.
Venezuela’s Information Ministry has avoided comment for now.
Maduro alleges unfair treatment
Maduro said in February that Facebook “censored” videos showing Carvativir. In the past, he has said that he and his allies have been wronged by social media companies, including what he calls arbitrary account suspension.
Maduro frequently uses social media, including Facebook and Twitter, and has occasionally broadcast speeches through Facebook Live.
Venezuela’s official figures as of Friday showed 154,905 cases of coronavirus and 1,543 deaths, although opposition critics say the true number is likely higher due to limited evidence.
