YouTube will start adding fact-check labels and re-order its ranking system for videos about health with help from a nonprofit group just days after President Joe Biden tore into social media for “killing people" by spreading falsehoods about vaccines.

YouTube, part of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, announced the changes on Monday morning. Beneath certain videos about health, the company will add information panels, like those currently found at the bottom of clips about popular conspiracy theory topics such as the moon landing.

YouTube will also start displaying select videos more prominently on the site when people search for health terms, similar to how it now treats certain news topics.

The website is an aggregator of news from open sources. The source is indicated at the beginning and at the end of the announcement. You can send a complaint on the news if you find it unreliable.
