BUT IF IT SAVED JUST ONE LIFE: Lockdown’s Lethal Toll. The Daily Mail tallied up British casualties from the lockdown. The findings are summarized at the Lockdown Skeptics website:

  • Delays in treatment are set to cause a 20% rise in deaths among newly diagnosed cancer patients in England – 6,270 excess deaths this year
  • Treatment for strokes fell by 45% during lockdown and there were more than 2,000 excess deaths in from heart disease
  • More than 50,000 operations for children were cancelled
  • Organ transplants fell by two thirds, with the number of those who died on the transplant waiting list almost doubling
  • Total waiting lists for routine orthopedic and eye operations are at record levels
  • Calls to child abuse helplines rocketed
  • As rates of depression and anxiety doubled, thousands of recovering alcoholics have relapsed.

Andrew Cuomo is no doubt too busy selling his book to comment. But he’ll surely give the British a run for their money.
