Facebook reverses policy on debating COVID origin - report

Thursday, 27. May 2021 03:52

Facebook Inc. has altered its policy to allow talk about coronavirus origin, Politico reported citing a spokesperson for the company.

The posts debating the origins of the virus, including those claiming that it was man-made will no longer be taken down and deemed as misinformation, according to the spokesperson.

The move was made after an article by The Wall Street Journal indicated that the virus may have escaped from a lab in China's Hubei province after it was found that lab staff in Wuhan sought hospital care a month before the pandemic hit.
