(FreedomBeacon.com)- An article reporting on a recent survey report that found unvaccinated individuals have a lower rate of severe cases of COVID-19 was removed from MSN.com, the news website launched by Microsoft, less than a week after it was published.
The analysis from the Control Group project was uploaded to the ResearchGate preprint server. It showed that worldwide, unvaccinated people have fewer instances of hospitalization compared to those who have received the COVID vaccine.
MSN.com initially posted an article about the study a week ago. However, it subsequently removed the story and the link now sends users to MSN’s main page.
It appears MSN removed the article after ResearchGate pulled the study from its server nine days after it was uploaded citing a breach of its terms and conditions.
On Friday, the author of the study, Robert Verkerk, received an email from ResearchGate informing him its preprint server can’t be used to post “broad, vague, irrelevant, untargeted, off-topic, or non-scientific content,” nor can it be used to post “potentially harmful or potentially dangerous content.”
Verkerk, the founder of Alliance for Natural Health International, conducted a survey from September 2021 to February 2022. The data collected was then analyzed by a team of international scientists headed up by Robert Verkerk.
According to the survey report’s co-author, Dr. Kat Lindley, data analysis showed that among those who opted for natural immunity, early treatment, and a healthy lifestyle rather than the COVID vaccines, instances of severe COVID are rare.
The analysis also concluded that the unvaccinated face discrimination over their decision to avoid the vaccines. Depending on the country, between 20 and 60 percent reported that they were the target of “hate or victimization.”
Lindley accused ResearchGate of censoring scientific discourse that “does not fit the mainstream narrative.”
Verkerk said the team has been invited to submit its results to a peer-reviewed journal “in a more consolidated form.”
