A new study from the National Bureau of Economic Research, cited in The Australian and in a New York Times op-ed today, reveals over 170,000 non-Covid excess deaths among young Americans in 2020 and 2021, most likely attributable to measures implemented to combat the coronavirus—i.e., deaths by lockdown.
Nice succinct summary, Michael, but I feel you're a bit too hands-off in expressing appropriate outrage. Our leaders killed these 200,000 young people as surely as if they had shot them with a gun. This is mass murder at the largest scale. And it was entirely predictable -- indeed, it was predicted by many objectors early on. I called the pandemic and lockdown policies "the Left's 9/11," and called out the massively misled thinking that resulted in lockdowns, in April of 2020. I was not alone, of course, but we really need to push for the new GOP-led Congress to hold hearings on this after the elections. Or even start now with minority-led hearings. If we don't yell to high heaven about these quantified deaths we are not going correct the record or change public health policies to avoid the inevitable repeat of these policies with the next bug that comes along, or the next or the next.
Can anyone help me program my keyboard for automatic fill-in of "bit late to the party, ain't ya fellas?" since there's gonna be a heck of a lot of this coming...
did they include YPLL numbers? because starting from nursing home over-representation (a factor of 100 or more) and life expectancy (~1 yr on admission) each death of a young person is 100x+ as expensive in YPLL terms compared to covid death
Of course the lockdowns killed people. The lockdowns were only followed to allow for the mail-in voting to secure The Steal.
You can't lockdown a country to stop an air-borne contagion months after it was already all over the place. That's nonsense.
The truth at last. But we should measure QALYs
So what. Do you think any one of our Young Global Leaders could care less about causing so many excess deaths? Not a chance. And there's nothing we can do to ensure it won't happen again. Can you say, "monkeypox?"
Thanks Michael. I have zero reason to doubt this. Isolation and solitary confinement have long been a form of punishment because they cause misery.
Have you seen this? A harrowing account of what transpired in Canada and UK and likely elsewhere in 2020. Note that some nonCovid deaths were likely reported as Covid as the true cause was too unpalatable to acknowledge
Amazing report!! Thanks a lot for sharing!
From the Report:
"Summing our estimates across causes and age groups, we estimate 171,000 excess non-
Covid deaths through the end of 2021 plus 72,000 unmeasured Covid deaths. The Economist has
assembled national-level mortality data from around the world and obtains a similar U.S.
estimate, which is 199,000 (including any unmeasured Covid) or about 60 persons per 100,000
population (Global Change Data Lab 2022). For the European Union as a whole, the estimate is
near-identical at 64 non-Covid excess deaths per 100K. In contrast, the estimate for Sweden is
-33, meaning that non-Covid causes of death were somewhat low during the pandemic."
Read Michael's book. It should be required so that people understand what we are dealing with insofar as the Chinese!
Hard to make this shit up; we killed hundreds of thousands of healthy people to combat a virus that poses zero threat to the healthy. Those decision makers (Fauci, Burke, Wallensky and all the HHS cronies) will never face any consequences for what amounts to mass murder!
It’s CoVid Vax deaths plus lockdown related deaths.
200,000? What shall we call this genocide for the history books?
Genocide by the CDC NIH Bidet Criminal Syndicate and FDA
They are wrong about Sweden. They DID lockdown the nursing homes. Guess where all the excess mortality is?
Lockdowns caused ALL the excess deaths everywhere...
If it saves even a single life. . . errrrr, whoops.
I call BS on this:
"..plus 72,000 unmeasured Covid deaths."
Too much Fed money to be harvested by hospitals for that many people to die and not go through the medical system of covid testing, regardless of how they passed.
was it worth it? ask the dead
