Eduardo Bolsonaro says that in the case of lockdown, “ people are being sentenced to stay home, which further spreads the virus. ”

Twitter warned of the potential for “spreading misinformation and potentially harmful covid-19” in a post by Congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro (PSL-SP) on “lockdown” and social distancing published on Monday (12/04).

Eduardo Bolsonaro posted in his profile: “Lockdown is the opposite of social distancing. In the event of lockdown, people are sentenced to stay home, which further spreads the virus.”

Twitter then posted a notice in the post: “This Tweet violated Twitter’s rules regarding disclosure of misleading and possibly harmful information related to covid-19. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public interest that the Tweet remain accessible.”
