youtube antivaccine kenleaks switzerland information block ban

YouTube has taken down all anti-vaccine videos.

YouTube will block all anti-vaccine content, expanding its ban on false information about COVID vaccines to include misinformation about other approved vaccines, according to a blog post published on Wednesday. Check the news YouTube has taken down all anti-vaccine videos and more on Switzerland based Lifestyle Magazine- Kenleaks Magazine.

According to YouTube’s policies, claims that the flu vaccine causes infertility and the MMR shot, which protects against measles, mumps, and rubella, can cause autism are examples of prohibited content.

According to a YouTube spokeswoman, the online video firm controlled by Alphabet Inc (GOOGL.O) is also blocking channels linked with numerous renowned anti-vaccine advocates, including Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Joseph Mercola.

According to a press email for Mercola’s website, “we are united across the world, we will not live in fear, we will stand together and regain our liberties.” Kennedy did not reply to demands for comment right away.

The steps come as YouTube and other tech behemoths such as Facebook Inc. (FB.O) and Twitter Inc. (TWTR.N) have been chastised for failing to do enough to combat the spread of misleading health information on their platforms.

Even as YouTube takes a stronger stance against disinformation, it is facing global backlash. On Tuesday, Russian state-backed broadcaster RT’s German-language accounts were removed from YouTube, citing a violation of the company’s COVID-19 disinformation policy.

Russia labeled the move “unprecedented information aggression” and vowed to stop YouTube on Wednesday.
