Instagram announced in a tweet that they are banning searches on AR effects related to COVID-19. Per Instagram:

"We will no longer allow people to search for COVID-19 related AR effects on Instagram, unless they were developed in partnership with a recognized health organization. This is part of our ongoing effort to better connect people with credible health information."
This is in response to a sudden rise of coronavirus filters on Instagram stories, which are seen as insensitive given the alarming rise of new cases arising from the pandemic.

    ....not to mention the scams of fake preventatives and cures and info that is not in any way factual....

    This is very considerate of Instagram, I think every social media needs to do actions to prevent any kinds of spam and misinformation on this serious matter.
