In a blog post published Monday, Facebook announced that they will remove "additional refuted claims" about the coronavirus and vaccinations in general, following consultations with the World Health Organization (WHO). Effective immediately, Facebook also plans to include disproven claims that the coronavirus is man-made, that vaccinations don't really protect, and that surviving the disease itself is much safer than getting vaccinated.
