The Indian govt has ordered social media platforms to remove COVID-19 content tagged as “Indian Variant”. The Ministry of IT said,” WHO has not associated the term Indian Variant with the B.1.617 variant of the COVID-19 in any of its reports.” In April another letter was sent by the ministry to social media firms to let users know that they must not host, display, upload, modify, publish, transmit, update, or share any info on Covid-19 that may mislead citizens.
