YouTube deletes 30,000 vaccine misinfo videos

The platform says it has taken down 30,000 videos since its ban on false vaccine claims in October.

A YouTube spokeswoman said the videos contradicted vaccine information from the World Health Organization (WHO) or health authorities such as the NHS.

In October, it banned vaccine misinformation in a bid to clamp down on attempts to discredit the jabs.

It added that in the past year, it had removed more than 800,000 videos for coronavirus misinformation.

That figure covers more than just vaccines, but wider “medically unsubstantiated” claims about the virus.
