US President Joe Biden is extremely upset with the misinformation circulating on the Internet media regarding Corona. He bluntly said that Internet media platforms like Facebook are killing people by spreading false information.
Biden’s statement comes after US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy said that the Internet media is creating public health threats by providing misleading information about the vaccine. It is to be known that the World Health Organization also believes that misinformation in the epidemic is infodemic in a way.
In this regard, after Vivek Murthy’s statement, journalists asked Biden if he had any message for media platforms like Facebook, due to which misleading information about the vaccine has spread. They simply said that they are killing people. Now the pandemic is only for those who are not getting the vaccine.
According to Reuters, Facebook spokesman Danny Lever responded by saying that we will not deviate from allegations that are not based on facts. Two hundred million users of Facebook have seen official information regarding Corona and Vaccine. 3.3 million people in the US have searched for vaccine centers with Facebook’s Finder tool. Twitter has also said that it is doing the right thing to provide official information.
