YouTube bans COVID-19 vaccine misinformation

YouTube said it would remove videos from YouTube containing misinformation about COVID-19 vaccines.

YouTube said that this would include removing claims that the vaccine will kill people or cause infertility, or that microchips will be implanted in people who receive the vaccine.

The company said it would now ban any content with claims about COVID-19 vaccines that contradict consensus from local health authorities or the World Health Organization.

In its email, Facebook added that it had removed over 200,000 videos related to misleading COVID-19 information since February.
