The Chinese team looks forward to their next match after..
Both YouTube and Facebook stated that his video has violated their platform’s policies.
Alphabet Inc’s YouTube and Facebook have recently removed from their platforms a recent video of the Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Recorded on October 21, the video was that of Bolsonaro falsely claiming that the COVID-19 vaccines result in the development of AIDS.
Both YouTube and Facebook stated that this video has violated their platform’s policies.
"Our policies don't allow claims that COVID-19 vaccines kill or seriously harm people," stated a Facebook spokesperson on Monday.
"We removed a video from Jair Bolsonaro's channel for violating our medical disinformation policy regarding COVID-19 for alleging that vaccines don't reduce the risk of contracting the disease and that they cause other infectious diseases," said YouTube.
According to national newspapers O Estado de S. Paulo and O Globo, Bolsonaro’s YouTube channel received a 7-day suspension, in addition to the removal of video.
Additionally, YouTube has previously removed other videos from Bolsonaro’s YouTube channel for claims such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin against COVID-19, despite evidence saying that these are ineffective against the virus.
The Brazilian President stated last January that he will not be taking any vaccine against the COVID-19.
Bolsonaro tested positive for COVID-19 back in July 2020. He only experienced mild symptoms, which he accredited to him taking hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug.
