According to her, such statements have no basis. “We will not be distracted by accusations that are not supported by facts. There is another fact: more than two billion people have received reliable information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook, which is more than anywhere else on the Internet, ”she said.
Lever added that more than 3.3 million US citizens have used Facebook’s tool to find information about vaccinations and how and where to get them. “The facts are that Facebook is helping to save lives. Point, ”she said.
Earlier, Biden said that social networks, allowing the spread of misinformation about the coronavirus, are killing people. According to the head of state, at the moment the only pandemic that exists is among the unvaccinated. Biden, when asked what message he has for social media regarding misinformation about COVID-19, stressed that social networks, without interfering with the spread of such messages, are killing Americans.
