... COVID-19 fatalities have fallen disproportionately on the elderly, particularly in nursing homes, and those with co-morbidities. Based on the expected remaining lifetimes of these COVID-19 patients, and given that 40 percent of deaths are in nursing homes, the disease has been responsible for 800,000 lost years of life so far. Considering only the losses of life from missed health care and unemployment due solely to the lockdown policy, we conservatively estimate that the national lockdown is responsible for at least 700,000 lost years of life every month, or about 1.5 million so far — already far surpassing the COVID-19 total.Policymakers combatting the effects of COVID-19 must recognize and consider the full impact of their decisions. They need to be aware of the devastating effects in terms of lost life from shutting down significant parts of the economy. The belated acknowledgement by policy leaders of irreparable harms from the lockdown is not nearly enough. They need to emphatically and widely inform the public of these serious consequences and reassure them of their concern for all human life by strongly articulating the rationale for reopening society.
I have no idea, but a tennis friend committed suicide a couple weeks ago leaving behind his wife and 2 kids. He got laid off by HP during SIP. He was a happy guy. Always had a smile on his face. Not sure what else happened for him to take away his own life. He was 45 years old. Sigh....
I believe he was killed by Democrats.Their unjustified panic is killing a lot of people.All they care about is getting Trump, and they don't care how many people have to die to do it.
