The ambassador to the United States, Carlos Vecchio, reported that the Facebook account of the dictator, Nicolás Maduro, was blocked for spreading false information about COVID-19.
“Maduro’s regime permanently misinforms Venezuelans putting the lives of millions at high risk,” Vecchio expressed with special concern through his social networks.
The Venezuelan diplomat condemned that on the one hand “he prohibits the entry of the COVID vaccine to Venezuela and sends the population to drink concoctions, all while he and the ‘enchufados’ (well connected) guaranteed their vaccine. Immoral!”.
This Saturday, the social network Facebook blocked Nicolás Maduro’s account for 30 days for having “violated its policy against disinformation about COVID-19,” a company spokesman informed EFE this Saturday.
The measure does not remove Maduro’s page from the platform, but rather prevents him from temporarily making new publications, for promoting a remedy that he claims without evidence, cures the disease.
