Facebook has frozen Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro’s page after he claimed without evidence that a herbal remedy could cure Covid-19.
He claimed in January that a thyme herb solution could cure the disease. He will be unable to post for 30 days.
The company said the leader had repeatedly violated its policies on coronavirus disinformation.
Mr Maduro is not the only world leader to face a pushback from social media companies over Covid.
US President Donald Trump and Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro have also faced action over Covid posts.
