The Ministry of Justice said on Sunday that as the government sought to strengthen its support for the plan, Facebook cancelled the lies against the coronavirus vaccine spread in Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Saturday) became the first person in Israel to be vaccinated. Opinion polls show that about two-thirds of the public want to follow suit.
The Justice Department stated that, upon request, Facebook divided it into four groups last weekend and distributed text, photos and videos with “intentionally false content designed to mislead the coronavirus vaccine.”
The Ministry of Health said in a statement that this type of “fake news” includes arguments that vaccines will be used to implant government tracking chips in recipients, poison them, and thereby kill people or conduct medical experiments.
A Facebook spokeswoman confirmed that four Hebrew-speaking organizations have been banned as part of the company’s policy on “spreading misinformation about vaccines.”
Israeli officials said that the country will have enough vaccine orders by the end of the year to protect the most vulnerable 20% of the population, and then lift some coronavirus containment measures, but Israel is worried that if people get wrong information about vaccinations, the voter rate may be Will be hit.
Israel began vaccinating medical workers on Sunday. At the Surski Medical Center in Tel Aviv, dozens of doctors and nurses dance while preparing to receive injections.
In second place are elderly Israelis or high-risk groups. It is expected that by the beginning of 2021 there will be more adult population.
Israel has a population of 9 million and has recorded 373,368 coronavirus cases, including 3,074 deaths. It has implemented two nationwide blockades and is considering new restrictions in highly infectious areas.
