PUBLIC HEALTH TERRORISM: Additional suicides, self-harm, cancer and heart deaths from lockdowns
This is an ongoing record (in my few spare moments) of the outcomes of public health terrorism: the killing and harming of additional people in the name of protecting us from an Act of Nature. The data are slowly coming in. I expect fuller info will be available in a year.
THE ORIGIN OF THIS PHRASE
Eamonn Mathieson was the first (at least as far as I know) to use the word “terror” to refer to the impact of the lockdowns on the people (in good medicine “we don’t terrorise our patients”). I liked this direct and clear statement about the impacts of the lockdowns and hysteria and now call this sorry episode “public health terrorism”.
I’ve in the past also referred to it as a crime against humanity. Basically, these are deaths that are caused by MALICIOUS AND RECKLESS policy makers who, in my view, ought to be jailed for their criminal acts which caused additional deaths and harm.
Eamonn Mathieson of the Covid Doctor's Network has done great work to defend the health of Victorians. I wish @VictorianCHO would pay more attention to his medical colleagues (hundreds of them) who are pointing out severe flaws in his lockdowns.https://t.co/NjjgsMs3vS pic.twitter.com/NHExvBak5v

Non-virus deaths at home behind surge in excess fatalities, figures show
Statistics show deaths from other causes are soaring, amid concern that millions went untreated for killer diseases during lockdown

SELF-HARM BY CHILDREN
The National Child Mortality Database in the U.K. shows an increase in child suicides in the early weeks of the U.K. lockdown. During lockdown, domestic-abuse hotline calls were up over 60% in the U.K. According to Dame Vera Baird, victims’ commissioner in the U.K., domestic-abuse murders of women increased significantly, possibly doubled, during lockdown. Drug abuse and alcoholism are up. [Source]
John Kehoe of The Australian Financial Review reported last month: “One-time Australian of the Year Patrick McGorry has warned the severe Melbourne lockdown and job losses have triggered a surge in mental health crisis calls and that suicide prevention has lost out because of the focus on COVID-19. Mental health support groups say they are being swamped with about a 20 per cent jump in pleas for help in Victoria since Melbourne’s stage three and stage four lockdown restrictions began. Professor McGorry, the executive director of youth mental health organisation Orygen, said people were suffering from a “perfect storm” of lockdown, unemployment and insufficient funding from governments for a “broken” system.” [Source]
There are 230,000 suicides in India each year. If this data (for just one district) represents the trend, India will end up with an additional 50-60,000 suicides already.
That's similar in magnitude to c19 deaths to date.
Plus additional cancer deaths + heart attacks etc.
