Lockdowns – Policy Impacts

Lock-downs or quarantines have throughout the ages been used as a policy for managing infectious illness. During epidemics and pandemics we have segregated the sick and the susceptible.

However the unprecedented response to Covid-19 has been to also severely restrict the healthy, and those in low risk age brackets.

This is a new experiment on a global scale which has had severely damaging effects on mental and physical health, relationships, education, employment, and widespread permanent closure of small and medium businesses.

The full impact will not be able to be identified for many years.

Deaths of despair are a very real long term consequence which alone are likely to exceed true Covid caused deaths.

The effectiveness of lock-down strategies in reducing the viral impact has never been supported by evidence-based science.

As the wave of deaths and hospitalizations subsides, many governments are increasingly mandating severe restrictions on freedom of movement.

 

It is becoming clearer that we are having Unalienable rights over-ridden by increasingly authoritarian dictates.

Draconian policies can not be justified.

“We are facing a situation where between an extra 750 and 1500 suicides may occur annually, this in addition to the 3000-plus lives that are lost to suicide already every year,” Hickie said.”

Canada:

August 01, 2021 – More Canadians Under 65 Died From Lockdowns Than From COVID-19

August 01, 2021

As the fallout numbers from the worldwide lockdowns are weighing heavily in Canada, with statisticians reporting that four times as many Canadians died from indirect causes of the lockdown than the number that died from COVID itself.

A government report, “Provisional Death Counts and Excess Mortality,” shows that 5,535 Canadians under the age of 65 died between January 2020 to April 2021 because of “indirect consequences” due to the pandemic. During that same time frame, the report says 1,380 Canadians in the same age group died because of COVID-19 itself. Indirect consequences include “delayed medical procedures, increased substance use or a decline in deaths attributable to other causes, such as influenza,” according to the report.

Shutdowns forced more Canadians to stay at home and the cancellation or postponement of medical procedures and vital support services, while many businesses were forced to close. During that time, Statistics Canada confirmed that substance abuse increased as did the mortality rate.

Most of the people who died from COVID-19 in Canada were over the age of 85 and had dementia, Alzheimer’s, chronic heart disease or other pre-existing “cardiovascular and respiratory conditions,” the report said.
