WASHINGTON – Facebook says it is banning ads and commercial listings that sell medical face masks.
This comes as people panic over the Novel Coronavirus outbreak. It’s led to a shortage of masks and sellers are jacking up the price.
Facebook says the new rule will be enforced in the coming days.
The social networking site already bans people from making medical claims on product listings.
It says it is monitoring the coronavirus situation and will make necessary policy updates if people try to exploit the public health emergency.
