Lockdowns result in more lives lost than saved: Study
Following the implementation of Shelter-in-Place polices, excess mortality increases.’
(LifeSiteNews) – A June study found that lockdowns increase the mortality rate.
The study, done by researchers from both the non-partisan RAND Corporation and the University of Southern California, compared the number of non-coronavirus deaths registered before the COVID-19 lockdowns to that of non-coronavirus deaths registered during the lockdowns.
“We find that following the implementation of Shelter-in-Place (SIP) policies, excess mortality increases,” the researchers wrote. The researchers used SIP as a blanket term to refer to lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, and other similar draconian mandates.
The researchers analyzed the statistics from 43 countries and most American states. Some of the countries and states had jumped into lockdowns immediately. Others waited for some time before the lockdowns were mandated. In both of these pro-lockdown approaches, however, the pattern was the same: there was an increase in non-COVID or excess deaths.
The isolation resulting from the lockdowns, the study suggested, may have led to “several important unintended consequences” such as unemployment, increased stress and anxiety, substance abuse, suicides, increased child abuse and domestic violence, and those needing medical attention (such as cancer screenings) not being able to access it due to hospital restrictions.
