Amazon has removed one million products that claim to cure coronavirus. It is the second technology company that together with Facebook takes measures against misinformation.
The outbreak of the Conorovirus epidemic has upset the world and the governments of the affected countries are struggling to cope with a massive demand for hospitalization. Technology companies, on the other hand, are waging a completely different battle for the Coronavirus.
Ever since the epidemic became global, technology companies have been struggling to contain fake news and misinformation about the new Coronavirus in an effort to contain panic.
Just a few days, tFacebook took action to remove products that were claimed to cure or protect people from the Coronavirus. According to the Reuters news agency, Amazon has downloaded 1 million products claiming to cure it. The company also withdrew thousands of scam products and warned traders not to sell masks at exorbitant prices.
Amazon did not specify the exact amount above which the company considers the sale as a scandal. Amazon, however, claims that it will use a mix of automated and manual listing reviews to detect false requests and price spikes. Scientists around the world have repeatedly pointed out that there is still no cure for the new Coronavirus. Therefore, any ad you can see online that promises a cure is fake and you should report it.
