HANOVER, GERMANY - JUNE 12: The Facebook logo is displayed at the 2018 CeBIT technology trade fair on June 12, 2018 in Hanover, Germany. The 2018 CeBIT is running from June 11-15.

Facebook is taking even more action to fight misinformation about coronavirus.

The company is adding a new section to its website and app called ‘Facts About COVID-19.’ It will debunk common myths such as “drinking bleach will cure the virus” when it won’t. Users will also see statements from the World Health Organization, such as “Hydroxychloroquine hasn’t been proven to cure, treat, or prevent” the virus.

This is the latest measure by the company to stamp out the rampant misleading information being posted on social media.

The update comes as CEO Mark Zuckerberg plans to interview Dr. Anthony Fauci live this afternoon.
