US President Joe Biden has issued a statement clarifying that “Facebook isn’t killing people”, following his earlier criticism. The president had said “they’re killing people” when asked about Facebook’s role in the Covid pandemic, a comment which made headlines around the world. But he now says he was referring to leading misinformation spreaders on the platform. Facebook had fiercely denied any responsibility. President Biden’s initial remarks were off-the-cuff comments to a reporter, who’d asked about his message to “platforms like Facebook”. “They’re killing people,” he said. “The only pandemic we have is among the un-vaccinated. And they’re killing people.”
