MedCram Featured in Bloomberg — “YouTube Virus Misinformation Fight Trips on Drug Touted by Trump”
This week, MedCram and our co-founders — Dr. Seheult and Kyle Allred — were featured in this Bloomberg article, articulating the effects of the YouTube crusade against COVID-19 “misinformation,” or information “not aligned” with current WHO recommendations.
Allred and Dr. Seheult had the opportunity to speak with Bloomberg about the nuances in the new information and research related to the prevention and treatment for the COVID-19 pandemic. This conversation stemmed from the recent removal of five COVID-19 update videos from the MedCram YouTube channel. After a reporter from Bloomberg reached out to YouTube for comment, they said the removal was a “mistake” and the videos have been restored. This article highlights some of the problems, challenges, and collateral damage for social media companies that engage in censorship of education videos. As always, Dr. Seheult and the team at MedCram strive to review new information from peer-reviewed journals and pre-print publications in an unbiased (and non-political) way.
