Facebook has deleted a post in which US President Donald Trump had claimed COVID-19 was "less lethal" than the flu. Trump is at the White House after three days of hospital treatment having tested positive for the virus.
He wrote the US had ‘learned to live with’ flu season, ‘just like we are learning to live with COVID, in most populations far less lethal!!!"
Twitter hid the same message behind a warning about "spreading misleading and potentially harmful information".
Users have to click past the alert to read the tweet.
