  • Interpol has warned of potential illegal operations targeting Covid-19 vaccines

Facebook will begin removing false claims about COVID-19 vaccines, in its latest move to counter a tide of coronavirus-related online misinformation.

The US tech giant is acting as the first COVID-19 vaccines are set to be rolled out.

The company said in a statement on Thursday, in coming weeks they will start removing false claims about vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts. Britain this week became the first country to give emergency authorization for a vaccine developed by American drugmaker Pfizer and Germany's BioNTech, and innoculations could start within days.

The move expands Facebook's current rules against falsehoods and conspiracy theories about the pandemic.

Two drug companies, Pfizer Inc and Moderna Inc, have asked USA authorities for emergency use authorization of their vaccine candidates.

The social media company has rarely removed misinformation about other vaccines under its policy of deleting content that risks imminent harm.

From March to October, it removed 12 million posts with coronavirus-related misinformation.

The release cited another allegedly false claim - that groups are being infused without their consent to test the vaccine's safety - as another example of the kind of posts targeted for removal.

In October, the company banned ads discouraging vaccinations, though it made an exception for advocacy ads about government vaccine policies.
