Happening Now: Many believe that what Facebook just did proves that former President Donald J. Trump was correct all along in his belief that the coronavirus originated in Chinese lab, not in animals in the wild.
What did Facebook do?
Facebook just announced that it would no longer ban posts about COVID-19’s origin as man-made or manufactured. Readers will recall that Facebook previously claimed that allegations of COVID-19 being man-made had been “debunked.”
Now, Facebook states on its blog:
“In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps. We’re continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge.”
In short, Facebook now seemingly admits it was wrong to ban posts claiming COVID-19 was man-made, just as Trump claimed.
This is a breaking news report and will be updated as warranted.
