Youtube deletes about 1 million dangerous videos which misinformed about Covid

The company Youtube has deleted about one million videos which spread misinformation on the platform about Covid-19 since February 2020 stated Neal Mahon, a company official.

Mahon has released a statistic showing how the company reacts to the false information disseminated on the platform.

"The misinformation has been removed from the platform," he said.

He added: " Bad content represents only a small percentage of the billions of videos on YouTube (about .16-.18% of total views turn out to be content that violates our policies)," Mahon wrote. YouTube removes almost 10 million videos every quarter, "most of which reach less than 10 views."
