Google will ban Coronavirus Conspiracy ads to fight Misinformation


Google is amping up its fight towards coronavirus—related misinformation by banning adverts that “contradict authoritative scientific consensus” in regards to the pandemic. That means web sites and apps can not make money from running commercials promoting debunked conspiracy theories about COVID-19. Those include claims that the virus was created in a Chinese lab, that the pandemic is a hoax and that Bill Gates was behind it.

Google will begin implementing the new rule next month. And along with blocking advertisers from creating new ads, it would use human and machine reviewers to find and take action against publishers and advertisers who break the rule. It may even ban those that repeatedly violate its new policy from utilizing its ad platform. As a Google spokesperson explained, the new rule expands the corporate’s policy towards harmful health claims, such as miracle health cures and things that promote anti-vaccination ideas, on the web.
