Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accused Facebook of “Digital Totalitarianism”, with his post on his Twitter account.
“Given the censorship of my personal page by Facebook, I will continue to post my traditional weekly COVID-19 reviews on Facebook page ‘ConCiliaFlores’, Instagram, Youtube and Twitter. They can’t shut us down!” included his note.
Faced with censorship and Facebook’s blocking of my page, I announce that today # 28Mar The customary Weekly Balance of the Fight against Covid-19, will be broadcast on the Facebook Page: “ConCiliaFlores”, and also on my Instagram, YouTube and Twitter accounts. They will not shut us up! pic.twitter.com/NrEZgjtvPm

He introduced the medicine made of thyme as a “miracle”.
According to Facebook, Maduro violated the platform’s policies by promoting the use of the drug called Carvativir, which it claims was good against COVID-19.
Facebook, which removed the video of Maduro promoting the drug in question from the platform, also froze the account of the President of Venezuela for 30 days.
In the video removed by Facebook, Maduro referred to the Carvativir drug made from thyme as a “miracle” and claimed that it could be used in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.
