Facebook removes group promoting conspiracies about COVID vaccines

Facebook has removed a major group promoting conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 vaccines that in recent weeks urged its thousands of members to reserve vaccination appointments and fail to show up, aiming to make shots go to waste.

The Hebrew-language group was called “No to the green passport,” referring to a document that will enable vaccinated people to attend certain public venues and events and potentially travel abroad.

But many of its 14,000 members made use of the group to promote unfounded allegations that the vaccine is harmful.

Facebook comments that the group violated its community standards regarding fake news.
