Twitter deleted a message that Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro published on that social network about an alleged antidote against the coronavirus pandemic.

The communications giant deleted one of the tweets that the president shared describing studies that would have been carried out by a Venezuelan scientist in "where the map of the genetic structure and antidote" of COVID-19 is shown.

"The prominent Venezuelan scientist, Sirio Quintero, sent me 3 interesting articles on the coronavirus and has given me his permission to share them with the Venezuelan people. Here I leave them," Maduro wrote last Sunday on the aforementioned platform.

According to CNN, Twitter took the step of deleting the publication because it considered that it violated the company's rules on the reproduction of false or misleading publications about the pandemic.

In statements offered to the Venezuelan state television station VTV, the president condemned the decision and said he did not understand the reasons for the censorship, alleging that he only made recommendations based on natural medicine to strengthen the immune system.

Twitter's new rules state that "people will be required to delete tweets" to include information about treatments that are ineffective, deny scientific data about the pandemic, and make scientifically unverified claims that incite "panic, social unrest or disorder on a large scale."

Until now the vaccine against this disease has not been developed and among the most effective measures to fight the pandemic are washing hands frequently with soap and water; cough by covering your mouth with your forearm or a disposable tissue; Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and keep a distance of at least 6 feet from other people, as directed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
