Facebook has removed 18 million misleading posts about COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic

As the third wave of COVID-19 continues across the country, staying up-to-date with the right information has never been more important. But depending on where you get the news, sometimes misinformation can be hard to spot.

Since the start of the pandemic, until April 2021, more than 18 million pieces of content from Facebook and Instagram have been removed for violating the platforms’ policies on COVID-19-related misinformation.

The company says it has labeled more than 167 million pieces of COVID-19 content in total, and are making accounts that discourage vaccines more difficult to find as part of its efforts. Source: CTV
