Facebook temporarily bans medical mask ads over coronavirus speculations

Facebook is introducing a temporary ban on advertising medical face masks to prevent speculative activities over the growing need for protection against the global coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the company said in a statement, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

"We are temporarily banning advertisements and commerce listings, like those on Marketplace, that sell medical face masks. We'll begin to enforce this change over the next few days. We already prohibit people from making health or medical claims related to the coronavirus in product listings on commerce surfaces, including those listings that guarantee a product will prevent someone from contracting it", the statement read.
