Google set to ban Coronavirus ads.

1 Mins read

The tech giant is set to ban ads relating to Coronavirus, as owners of the ads keep claiming that the virus is man made. And also, this “contradicts authoritative scientific consensus” of their policy. Which means that websites and apps can no longer make money from running advertisements promoting debunked conspiracy theories about COVID-19. Those include claims that the virus was created in a Chinese lab, that the pandemic is a hoax and that Bill Gates was behind it.

It will also ban those who repeatedly violate its new policy from using its ad platform. As a Google spokesperson said, the new rule expands the company’s policy against harmful health claims, such as miracle health cures and things that promote anti—vaccination ideas, on the internet.

It reads: “We are putting additional safeguards in place by expanding our harmful health claims policies for both publishers and advertisers to include dangerous content about a health crisis that contradicts scientific consensus.”

Meanwhile, Google announces in April that it will be investing $6.5M to fight Covid-19 misrelated Information. While Apple is rejecting all Coronavirus Mobile App that isn’t from authorized health Organization, and Twitter is banning tweets on fake Covid-19 cures, Facebook is also set to start banning too.
