Facebook has blocked the Facebook account of Nicolas Maduro, the President of Venezuela. Maduro is accused of spreading misleading information about Corona. This block will remain for the next 30 days.
Maduro claimed, without any medical evidence, that Carvativir was miraculous in the fight against the drug Corona virus. The Facebook spokesperson said that due to repeated violations of the rules, we are blocking the account of the President of Venezuela for 30 days. During this time, his account can only be read. The Facebook spokesperson also said that Maduro’s controversial video has been removed due to a violation of the rules regarding the corona virus. People’s life could be in danger with this video. In this video Maduro was claiming that with just a few drops on the tongue of the drug Carvativir, the corona miraculously ends and there is no side effect.
