Facebook lifted its ban on ads and ecommerce listings for hand sanitizer and surface-disinfecting wipes.

The social network imposed a temporary ban on those products in March in order to prevent scams, inflated prices and hoarding.

The social network said in a Newsroom post, “Since then, we’ve continued to monitor trends and activity around Covid-19 to better understand how people are using our platform and advertising tools during the pandemic.”
