According to a report released yesterday by the YouTube administration, the platform has removed more than 1 million videos that provide false information about the dangerous coronavirus since the outbreak of the corona epidemic.
“Our policy is to remove any video that could directly harm the real world,” said Neil Mohan, chief product officer of the video platform YouTube.
He said that since February 2020, more than 1 million videos claiming false treatment or fraud and providing false information about the dangerous coronavirus had been removed.
The Chief Product Officer added that in a global epidemic, everyone should have the best information available to protect themselves and their families.
YouTube management says it is working to speed up the process of removing videos that provide inaccurate information.
