Two Oxford University professors, Carl Heneghan and Tom Jefferson, have published an article titled A landmark Danish study shows that masks have no significant effect. But to your surprise Facebook has censored it.
Specifically, the social network has labeled the article as “False information. Checked by independent verifiers “.
Heneghan criticized Facebook, saying: “I am aware that this is happening to others and what has happened to academic freedom and freedom of expression. There is nothing in this article that is ‘false’“.

For his part, Jefferson believes that “it’s censorship and it is one of the reasons we are facing a global collapse of free thought and science. “
