‘Deaths of Despair’ Pandemic Could Match Severity of Coronavirus Pandemic

by | May 16, 2020 | Health, World News | 1 comment

As the current wave of Coronavirus infections begins to ease, or at least the highly manipulated statistics being published begin to subside; a new pandemic is on the horizon, ‘deaths of despair’.

Marketwatch reports:

In addition to more than 79,124 deaths in the U.S. from COVID-19, the growing epidemic of “deaths of despair” in the U.S. is also increasing due to the pandemic — and another 75,000 more people will likely die from drug or alcohol misuse and suicide, according to new research released by Well Being Trust and the Robert Graham Center for Policy Studies in Family Medicine and Primary Care.

Projections of additional “deaths of despair” range from 27,644, assuming a quick economic recovery and the smallest impact from unemployment, to 154,037, assuming a slow recovery and the greatest impact from unemployment. “We can prevent these deaths by taking meaningful and comprehensive action as a nation,” the researchers wrote in the “deaths of despair” report published Friday.[1]

This is something we have aired our concerns over since the early days of this pandemic, with strict lockdown rules being imposed on entire populations, millions upon millions of jobs being lost and economies grinding to a halt – it was inevitable that there would be devastating repercussions.

Current US Unemployment figures up to April 2020

The “Deaths of Despair” report goes onto say:

“More Americans could lose their lives to deaths of despair, deaths due to drug, alcohol, and suicide, if we do not do something immediately,” the report said. “Deaths of despair have been on the rise for the last decade, and in the context of COVID-19, deaths of despair should be seen as the epidemic within the pandemic.”[1]

The consequences from these lockdowns could turn out to be far more devastating than the virus itself, which without trying to beat our own drum to much, is exactly what I have been saying since the early days of lockdown.

What do you think? Do you think the Lockdown was still the best option, or do you think the negative consequences of  the lockdowns far outweigh any of the positives (if any) they had to offer?

    The lockdown as an offshoot of a contagious virus hoax has been a ruse by the globalists to oppress the populations and to rejig the economy while cleaning out the ‘deplorables’.

    It is up to the people to stand against the lockups and reclaim their sovereignty, although the newly emerging police state has made that too difficult for most.

    This whole event makes me sad and angry.
