Trump is at the White House after four days of hospital treatment having tested positive for the virus. The tweet quotes: '' flu season,just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!". Twitter hid the same message behind a warning about "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information". Both social media platforms removed misleading information (This is the second time that Facebook has deleted a post from the president. Twitter has intervened more often with deletions and warnings). As stated, "We remove incorrect information about the severity of Covid-19, and have now removed this post," said Andy Stone, policy communications manager at Facebook. However, reference to a law that says social networks are not responsible for the content posted by their users, but it allows the firms to engage in "good-Samaritan blocking", including the removal of content they judge to be offensive, harassment or violent. ''Pressure has been mounting on Facebook and Twitter to do more to tackle misinformation both about the pandemic and the US election. For that reason, their decisive action on Trump's recent post promoting false claims about the severity of coronavirus will be welcomed.'' Quotes Marianna Spring. People are questioning whether what he did was appropriate to quote on a social media platform in general. ''That said, Trump's comments about the flu - and those yesterday saying "Don't be afraid of Covid" - have already started to fuel conspiracy theories online.'' (Marianna Spring) With that said, people are already taking this and making more 'fuel to the flames'. Posts in pro-Trump and anti-mask Facebook groups have shared the comments with captions about the pandemic not being real, or not very serious. They have also used it to encourage others not to follow health guidance like wearing a mask or social distancing. This endangers people around them and abusing the rules about COVID-19. Early on in the pandemic, the BBC investigated the human cost of misinformation, including those who fell seriously ill because social media posts led them to doubt the reality or severity of the pandemic and ignore advice. The hope will be that this action from social media sites could reduce the risk of that happening - but those who may have already been exposed to this false information could be impacted, and all eyes will be on social media sites to see if they keep up this approach to tackling disinformation - coronavirus, political or otherwise - especially from the US Election candidates as polling day nears.
