After a series of polarizing decision regarding political ads, Facebook has decided to crack down on content that creates panic and hysteria around the coronavirus outbreak, as well as the wave of attempts to promote miraculous cures for the illness.

The coronavirus crisis is now serious enough – with a toll of 81,292 cases and 2,770 deaths as of writing – that tech giants are starting to carefully consider how they moderate related content posted on their social platforms.

According to a report from Business Insider, Facebook is crafting tighter rules for what content is acceptable on the platform when it comes to the illness in order to cut down on the rapidly increasing amount of misinformation posted online.
