A few weeks ago, I published a video by renowned scientist Nicholas White on the use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine against COVID-19.
Bizarrely, it was censored by Facebook.
Brazilian scientist Claudia Paiva wrote a post with a link to the video. Hours later, it was removed. Here’s Facebook’s explanation:
Your post goes against our Community Standards on misinformation that could cause physical harm
No one else can see your post.
We encourage free expression, but don’t allow false information about COVID-19 that could contribute to physical harm.
This is absurd. White says we do not know whether chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine work against COVID-19 and does not advocate their use in treatments. Why the censorship?
A ridiculous and unjustifiable decision from Facebook.
