Airbnb will ban renting out houses for parties

The move was announced after shooting on 31st of October
Airbnb will ban renting any type of accommodation for party purposes said Bryan Chesky, Airbnb CEO. The decision was made after shooting in one of California’s houses, where 5 people ended up dead. 

"Starting today, we are banning “party houses” and we are redoubling our efforts to combat unauthorized parties and get rid of abusive host and guest conduct, including conduct that leads to the terrible events we saw in Orinda", - said Chesky on Friday. 
Chesky also stated that the amount of manual screenings will increase and that Airbnb will create a special task force to tackle party houses.
