Northern Calif. Doctors: More People Are Dying From Suicide Than COVID
As suspected the lockdown is doing far more harm than any good
If the lockdown is killing more people through suicides than Covid in California then you can be sure it is doing much the same thing everywhere else and that includes Ireland and the UK. It is time now for people to release the true figures on suicide here in the last two months and not some covered up figure. We can be sure that the manipulated is so bad that even those who have died by suicide have been marked as Covid deaths.
Now this breaking news from California by doctors who have got a spine to stand up and say it as it is have spoken out. Unfortunately few doctors have done the same here. The medical establishment is in real danger of destroying their reputation through their sellout of their values and lack of integrity in this crisis
Liberty headlines report:
Doctors in Northern California said they’ve seen more deaths from suicide than they have from the coronavirus throughout the shutdown.
“The numbers are unprecedented,” Dr. Michael deBoisblanc of John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, told ABC 7 News.
In the past four weeks alone, deBoisblanc’s hospital has seen a “year’s worth of suicides,” he said.
Kacey Hansen, a trauma center nurse at John Muir Medical Center, said she’s seen a growing number of suicide attempts, too. And it’s becoming increasingly difficult to save all of these patients, she explained.
“What I have seen recently, I have never seen before,” Hansen said. “I have never seen so much intentional injury.”
These deaths of despair make it clear that it’s time to end the shelter-in-place orders, deBoisblanc said.
“Personally I think it’s time,” he said. “I think, originally, this order was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients.We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering.”
The loss of community and the growing sense of isolation is affecting the mental well-being of Americans, said Tom Tamura, the executive director of the Contra Costa County Crisis Center.
“I think people have found themselves disconnected from the normal supportive networks that they have, churches and schools and book clubs, you name it,” Tamura said.
“And that, coupled with the closure of some counseling services, people were maybe in a little bit of shock,” he continued. “They were trying to weather the storm a bit, but as that isolation has grown people have come to realize this isn’t a sprint it is marathon.”
A study published in early May argued that the coronavirus shutdown could lead to at least 75,000 deaths directly caused by anxiety about the virus, job loss, or an addiction to alcohol or drugs.
California isn’t the only part of the country facing alarmingly high suicide rates. In late March, more people died of suicide in a single Tennessee county than of the coronavirus in the entire state.
