Study: Lockdown “Will Destroy at Least Seven Times More Years of Human Life” Than it Saves

“Likely more than 90 times greater.”

A study has found that the “stay at home” lockdown order in the United States will “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than it saves and that this number is “likely” to be more than 90 times greater.

As we have repeatedly highlighted, the untold cost of the lockdown in terms of untreated serious illnesses and the impact on mental health will not be fully known for years, but discussion around the issue has been limited in the mainstream media.

Now a new study finds that debilitating stress and anxiety caused by the lockdown, including turmoil caused by huge job losses, could lead to a plethora of negative health problems that will have a far greater overall toll on human life than the number of lives saved by the lockdown.

“Based on a broad array of scientific data, Just Facts has computed that the anxiety created by reactions to Covid-19—such as stay-at-home orders, business shutdowns, media exaggerations, and legitimate concerns about the virus—will destroy at least seven times more years of human life than can possibly be saved by lockdowns to control the spread of the disease. This figure is a bare minimum, and the actual one is likely more than 90 times greater.”

Research shows that at least 16.8% of adults in the United States have suffered “major mental harm from responses to Covid-19.”

Extrapolating these numbers out, the figures show that “anxiety from responses to Covid-19 has impacted 42,873,663 adults and will rob them of an average of 1.3 years of life, thus destroying 55.7 million years of life.”

This contrasts with “a maximum of 616,590 lives (which) might be saved by the current lockdowns, and the disease robs an average of 12 years of life from each of its victims, which means that the current lockdowns can save no more than 7.4 million years of life.”

The seven times figure is a massively conservative estimate which minimizes the impact of the negative consequences of lockdown and maximizes the number of lives affected by lockdown.

“Under the more moderate scenarios…anxiety will destroy more than 90 times the life saved by lockdowns,” states the study.

The study lists a number of reasons why the lockdown has increased anxiety and depression, one of which includes the media’s role in exaggerating the deadliness of COVID-19 and “using false denominators that exaggerate its death rate.”

“This research is engaging and thoroughly answers the question about the cure being worse than the disease,” concluded Joseph P. Damore, Jr., M.D., who reviewed the study.

As we highlighted earlier, psychiatrists wrote 86% more prescriptions for psychotropic drugs, including antidepressants, during the lockdown months of March and April compared to January and February.

Man Arrested, Claims He Was Strip Searched For Going For a Walk Too Far From Home

“It felt humiliating.”

Published

A man in Wales was arrested by police for going for a walk too far from home and failing to identify himself before he claimed he was taken to the police station and subjected to a strip search.

The incident was highlighted by Welsh member of Parliament Neil McEvoy, who posted a video of the arrest to Twitter.

According to McEvoy, the couple in question were grieving the recent death of an uncle and wanted to visit the nearest beach to go for a walk.

Mr. Radek, the man seen being handcuffed in the video, says that the couple had been struggling with mental health issues as a result of lockdown.

“My family was struggling with many issues that are sourced in the constant lockdowns and homeschooling,” said Radek. “On top of that came personal family problems which we faced in the last months. They include the very serious illness of my wife’s brother and death of close relatives. We were not even able to say goodbye or go and attend the funeral in Poland.”

On returning to the car park after their walk on Talacre Beach, Radek and his wife were confronted by two female police officers who had been handing out fines.

Radek was told he had violated coronavirus regulations and was handcuffed before being subjected to a search without consent.

After refusing to give his name (which is not a legal requirement), Radek says he was taken to the police station, interrogated and shouted at.

Radek then says he was told to remove his clothes and threatened with their removal by scissors if he didn’t. He was then subjected to a humiliating strip search while being denied use of the toilet.

“It felt very humiliating and intimidating. I was explained my rights to speak to a solicitor and after about 3 hours I was released,” said Radek, who was not charged with any crime.

This is merely another example of the draconian policing now in force throughout the UK, with lockdown set to continue in some form until at least the end of June.

As we highlighted earlier, a woman in London was harassed by officers for trying to buy a coffee two miles from where she lives, while another video shows police harassing people for sitting down.

Japan Asks China to Stop Performing Anal Swabs On Its Citizens

Procedure causing “psychological pain.”

Tokyo has asked Beijing to stop performing COVID-19 anal swabs on its citizens after complaints that the procedure causes “psychological pain.”

“Some Japanese reported to our embassy in China that they received anal swab tests, which caused a great psychological pain,” said Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato.

China introduced the anal swab tests is several cities back in January, claiming that they are a more efficient and accurate way of detecting COVID-19.

Last week, China denied that it had forced U.S. diplomats to undergo the anal swab procedure, with China’s foreign ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian telling a press conference that “China has never required US diplomatic staff stationed in China to conduct anal swab tests.”

However, workers told the U.S. State Department that they had been given the test, which involves inserting a cotton swab 3-5cm into the anus and gently rotating it to collect a sample.

Much of China’s draconian response to the coronavirus pandemic, which included at one point welding people inside their own homes, has been praised by western media outlets.

Videos: Police Harass People For Walking, Sitting As Chief Admits ‘We’ve Had Enough, This Is Not Policeable’

“Police don’t want to police this”

Police in the UK were filmed harassing people on the streets and beaches again this past weekend merely for walking or sitting down.

An incident in London was captured as a woman remonstrated with cops after they attempted to stop her for getting a coffee near to where she lives.

The woman advised police that that should be concentrating on knife crime instead.

Police were patrolling London all weekend, interrogating and fining anyone they found to be sitting down for too long, or having strayed too far away from where they live:

As some people attempted to go for a walk on a beach in Northumbria, police were there to check papers and ensure they hadn’t come from out of the immediate area:

At an anti-lockdown protest in Bishops Park in London, police made arrests, including aggressively apprehending a woman who refused to ‘show her papers’:

It has become a familiar site in the UK and has been going on for months, yet even police themselves are sick of it.

“Police don’t want to police this. We have had enough of this. It is not policeable. It is not manageable,” Ken Marsh, the chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation told The Telegraph Sunday.

Marsh added that police do not want to put themselves at risk when they have to break distancing restrictions to question and arrest people over lockdown rules.

“We have to break Covid legislation every day of the week,” he said, adding “What if I turn round and say to my 32,000 members: ‘Adhere totally to Covid legislation.'”

“That is not what we want, but if we have to do that to protect my colleagues I will do that. Ministers are just not listening,” Marsh urged.
