YouTube is currently placing a ban on content that contradicts the World Health Organization’s guidelines as the coronavirus pandemic keeps shaking the world. PunchNG recently reported that the Google-owned company recently announced that it has commenced the removal of conspiracy theory clips that link the deadly virus to 5G.
According to CEO Youtube, Susan Wojcicki, “Anything that would go against World Health Organization recommendations are a violation of their policy. So people saying, ‘Take vitamin C, take turmeric, we’ll cure you,’ those are the examples of things that would be a violation of our policy.”

Susan added that amid the outbreak, YouTube has experienced a 75 percent increase in demand for credible news from reliable sources.
This is coming after Facebook announced that if any user views fake content related to the coronavirus, they would immediately see a pop-up to direct them to the World Health Organization website.
