“We’ve built, in collaboration with a lot of our health partners, a Coronavirus Information Center that we’re going to be putting on everyone's Facebook feed. We’re going to be rolling this out in a number of places around the US and Europe in the next 24 hours and then other places in the days to come. The goal here is going to be to put authoritative information from organizations like the CDC and WHO in front of everyone who uses our services,” Zuckerberg said.
