YouTube Sides With World Health Organization On Coronavirus

•, by ValueWalk

As the WHO finds itself in the middle of controversy over China's handling of COVID-19, it sounds like any videos even criticizing the agency could be removed.

Of course, the issue of censorship by the world's biggest tech firms isn't new, and it's unlikely to change anytime soon.

YouTube backs World Health Organization on coronavirus

In an interview with CNN, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said they've seen a 75% increase in video views for news from "authoritative sources" since the beginning of 2020. She also said they've been busy removing "problematic information" like anything that is "medically unsubstantiated."

Susan gave examples of videos advising people to take vitamin C or turmeric as content that violates YouTube's policies. She also said YouTube will remove anything that goes against World Health Organization recommendations.
