The new policy explains in a memo to advertising customers seen by Reuters on Thursday, which states this week the company accepting advertisements from government departments, hospitals, medical facilities and non-governmental organizations who wish to get specific information out to the public. It states the proposal to reveal in the coming days for advertising from political organisations.
Several Political strategists have told Reuters they supported the change in strategy.
The Trump campaign did not respond immediately to a request for comment. Google informs Reuters that limits impose for certain advertisers across its platforms. A company spokeswoman also said Google will determine whether it would allow brands and private firms to run ads linked to coronavirus.
