Lockdowns are a ‘Mass Casualty Incident’ Say 600 Doctors
The lockdown is necessary to save lives, huh? Not according to 600 physicians who have written a letter to Trump explaining how the lockdown, or shutdown as they put it, has negative consequences that are being ignored.
“The downstream health effects…are being massively under-estimated and under-reported. This is an order of magnitude error,” according to the letter initiated by Simone Gold, M.D., an emergency medicine specialist in Los Angeles.
“Suicide hotline phone calls have increased 600%,” the letter said. Other silent casualties: “150,000 Americans per month who would have had new cancer detected through routine screening.”
From missed cancer diagnoses to untreated heart attacks and strokes to increased risks of suicides, “We are alarmed at what appears to be a lack of consideration for the future health of our patients.”
Is this new? Has this “just” be figured out? No. This has been known since the lockdowns were put into effect. Many doctors, microbiologists, virologists and epidemiologists have have been against the lockdown, warning that the long term effects and deaths would surpass the deaths that are alleged to come from COVID-19.
Even this article on Forbes is calling this mass hysteria and fear a “COVID-phobia”. That is surprising to see. People suffering from heart attacks are staying home rather than “risk” going to a hospital, and then they die. It doesn’t help that in April, if you called for help from an ambulance in New York, rather than saves lives, the NY state had decided to issue a guideline to emergency workers to forget about reviving people without a pulse when they arrive on scene. Why? Because… coronavirus could spread more and they also don’t want to use resources on these dying people.
A memo issued from the state Health Department said these changes were:
“…necessary during the COVID-19 response to protect the health and safety of EMS providers by limiting their exposure, conserve resources, and ensure optimal use of equipment to save the greatest number of lives.”
Saving lives was so unimportant, that many people who ended up in hospitals were manipulated and pressured into signing DNRs, do not resuscitate wavers. This increased the death count for alleged (inflated and fabricated) “COVID-19 deaths”.
Treatments for heart attacks in hospitals have dropped by 40%. The physical and mental health of the nation is dropping:
“The millions of casualties of a continued shutdown will be hiding in plain sight, but they will be called alcoholism, homelessness, suicide, heart attack, stroke, or kidney failure. In youths it will be called financial instability, unemployment, despair, drug addiction, unplanned pregnancies, poverty, and abuse.”
“It is impossible to overstate the short, medium, and long-term harm to people’s health with a continued shutdown,” the letter says. “Losing a job is one of life’s most stressful events, and the effect on a person’s health is not lessened because it also has happened to 30 million [now 38 million] other people. Keeping schools and universities closed is incalculably detrimental for children, teenagers, and young adults for decades to come.”
Millions of people having their lives destroyed, and many of them will be ending up dead… versus an alleged new virus that is as deadly as the seasonal flu (as much of the death count is inflated with regular non-COVID deaths). Hmmm… Boy… that’s some hard math to do… let’s keep the lockdown! We need to keep people safe (while more people will die as a result of these stupid draconian lockdown measures).
Contrary to the idiots who’ve always paraded a variation of the narrative that the lockdown saved lives, and those who oppose it are selfish and only care about money:
“Ending the lockdowns are not about Wall Street or disregard for people’s lives; it about saving lives,” said Dr. Marilyn Singleton, a California anesthesiologist and one of the signers of the letter. “We cannot let this disease change the U.S. from a free, energetic society to a society of broken souls dependent on government handouts.” She blogs about the huge damage the virus reaction is doing to the fabric of society.
Yes, that’s what all of this is. A reaction to a virus. A reaction created by bad science and bad models, fomented in to mass hysteria and fear by the media, and leading to authoritarian draconian measures imposed through coercive aggression by the government.
Some of the mainstream media talking heads couldn’t handle this letter’s truth. The AP spun it to be about “pro-Trump” doctors pushing for a rapid reopening. That’s why the mainstream media is often all about fake news. They are playing political games and don’t really care about lives.
Gold, who initiated the letter, refuted the AP claims, saying: “This was 100% physician grassroots. There was 0% GOP.”
Already in Walnut Creek, California, suicide attempts in 4 weeks number the amount of suicide attempts in the previous year. That’s 12 times more suicide attempts in a month compared to normal.
Drug use is on the rise as more people suffer from anxiety. Life has more suffering now, and becoming unbearable for many. It’s like Brave New World, where life is so dismal, everything is controlled, that people daily pop their SOMA to get high and escape reality.
This is our “new normal”. A society of rising depression. Children disconnected, wearing masks and gloves in schools, staying 6 feet away from each other, when they have a survival rate like the flu. Welcome to the Brave New World, brought to you by the belief in authority called government.
