Facebook Inc said it would work with its partners to send home all contract workers who review content until further notice, as public health concerns due to the coronavirus outbreak rapidly increases, Trend reports citing Reuters.

Facebook will ensure that all contract workers will be paid during this time, the company said in a statement on Monday.

"With fewer people available for human review we'll continue to prioritize imminent harm and increase our reliance on proactive detection in other areas to remove violating content," it said here
