Between February 2020 and the end of 2022, nearly 300,000 excess deaths occurred in the United States that cannot be attributed to covid, but rather to lockdowns and people being deprived of health care.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working on a report to confirm the leading cause of non-covid excess death, which is sure to include data about surges in cancer, heart disease, drug overdoses, and firearms incidents – mostly tied to the lockdowns.
Dr. Coady Wing, a health policy expert at Indiana University Bloomington, says that people who needed care were prevented from getting it due to the lockdowns, which caused their existing health conditions to worsen and new health conditions to form.
Compared to Sweden, which famously opted out of implementing covid lockdowns, the United States saw a surge of disease and death caused not by covid but by other factors. Over the past three years, deaths overall are up 14 percent in America compared to previous years.
“It’s a hard question to decide how many lives were saved by the shutdowns themselves,” Wing told the DailyMail Online. “What we’re finding is that some of the things people did to avoid covid risk, one of those things was to cut down of regular health care utilization, and that had health consequences.”
Increased disease and death is a consequence of covid lockdowns
The mostly likely people to cancel their doctors’ appointments during covid were those most in need of care, Wing found. This further exacerbated their health problems and caused many to die early and painful deaths.
“Cutting back care for covid-sensitive groups was bad for their health,” Wing stated.
Since pretty much the beginning of covid, deaths from heart disease, cancer, and other non-covid ailments began to soar. And it all leads back to the lockdowns, which are bad for health.
Even after the lockdowns ended, many health providers stuck with providing tele-health services only, minimizing in-person doctor visits. This, too, may have contributed to inadequate care and improper diagnoses and treatments due to lack of real human-to-human contact.
In 2020, the CDC reported a five percent rise in cancer deaths. In 2021, new cases of cancer were discovered much later than usual, on average, which once again points to lockdowns as the cause.
A recent study out of the Dartmouth Institute in New Hampshire also identified a 22 percent increase in Alzheimer’s deaths in the first year of the scamdemic. Heart disease deaths also jumped four percent in 2020, which represents “about five years of lost progress” in the fight against the number-one killer in America, according to the CDC.
In 2021, deaths from drug overdose also spiked. A record 108,000 people died from drug overdoses that year, a 15 percent increase over the previous all-time high count in 2020, the first year of the plandemic.
With the help of Dr. Engy Ziedan, an economist from Tulane University, Wing also published research showing that anywhere from 25 to 33 percent of non-covid deaths during the first two months of the scamdemic were caused by missed appointments alone.
“This is because people missed surgeries, screenings and other necessary treatments,” reports explain.
Despite its strict lockdown and mask orders, California saw the most excess deaths for non-covid reasons throughout the plandemic – which makes sense in that the Golden State is the most populous state in the country.
“In California, major cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco repeatedly instituted mask orders, curfews and other lockdown measures throughout the pandemic,” reports explain. “The Golden State recorded 33,730, the most of any state by a large margin.”
