The social network Facebook removed the video from the personal page of US President Donald Trump, which contained false information about the coronavirus infection. It was reported by NBC News on Thursday, August 6.

This is an excerpt from an interview with the American leader on Fox News, in which Trump said that children are “almost immune” to COVID-19.

“The video contains false claims that a group of people is insured against COVID-19, which is a violation of our policy on malicious misinformation about COVID,” said Andy Stone, a spokesman for the social network.

It is noted that this is the first time that Facebook has removed the publication of the head of the United States due to misinformation about the coronavirus infection.

In June, Facebook removed Trump’s post with a video of a scene with black and white toddlers in connection with copyright infringement complaints.

Entertainment company Jukin Media claimed that the video belonged to one of its partners, but nobody received permission to use it. They submitted a request to remove the video. A Facebook spokesman said the company received the complaint and removed the entry in accordance with copyright law.
