The Venezuelan government has hit out against Facebook after the social media giant put a “freeze” on the page of President Nicolas Maduro for 30 days over COVID-19 misinformation. This, al Jazeera reports, as Maduro, without any medical evidence, has touted Carvativir, an oral solution derived from thyme, as a “miracle” substance that he says can fight the novel coronavirus. A Facebook spokesperson told the Reuters news agency that it follows guidance from the World Health Organization, which “says there is currently no medication to cure the virus”. A company spokesperson also told the AFP news agency that a video had been removed from Maduro’s page “for violating […] policies against misinformation about COVID-19 that is likely to put people at risk for harm”.
