UN Officials Cite Study That Finds Lockdowns, School Closures KILLING More Children Than COVID

There will be “intergenerational consequences for child growth and development.”

UN officials have pointed to a study that reveals lockdowns and school closures are doing more harm to children than the coronavirus itself, with many more deaths expected to come from the reaction to the outbreak, rather than the pandemic itself.

In a presentation seeking extra funding for coronavirus efforts, UNICEF director Henrietta H Fore said Monday, “The repercussions of the pandemic are causing more harm to children than the disease itself.”

UNICEF nutrition program chief Victor Aguayo noted that the most harm is being done “by having schools closed, by having primary health care services disrupted, by having nutritional programs dysfunctional.”

The officials pointed to a study published in The Lancet that notes “physical distancing, school closures, trade restrictions, and country lockdowns” are worsening global child malnutrition.

The study estimates that an extra 6.7 million children will be at risk, and that lockdowns and other coronavirus responses could lead to more than 10,000 additional child deaths every month.

The UNICEF officials noted that would mean 128,000 more deaths among children within the next year.

The study complies research from the Washington-based International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

It concludes that shut down strategies could lead to “life-long impacts on education, chronic disease risks, and overall human capital formation,” in addition to “intergenerational consequences for child growth and development.”

The estimates are said to “likely to be conservative, given that the duration of this crisis is unknown, and its full impacts on food, health, and social protection systems are yet to be realized.”

The study dovetails with other research that has concluded lockdowns will conservatively “destroy at least seven times more years of human life” than they save.

The German government has concluded that the impact of the country’s lockdown could end up killing more people than the coronavirus due to victims of other serious illnesses not receiving treatment.

As we have previously highlighted, in the UK there have already been up to 10,000 excess deaths as a result of seriously ill people avoiding hospitals due to COVID-19 or not having their hospital treatments cancelled.

A data analyst consortium in South Africa also found that the economic consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29 times more people dying than the coronavirus itself.

Hundreds of doctors are also on record as opposing lockdown measures, warning that they will cause more death than the coronavirus itself.

While globalists have urged that lockdowns need to continue, medical and economic experts across the board in multiple countries are warning that the loss of life will be much greater than that caused directly by the virus itself, if lockdowns are not scrapped.

UK: Man Arrested For Not Wearing Mask Asks Cops Where They Were During BLM Riots

“You’re all gonna be under a bloody dictatorship!”

A video out of the UK shows a man being arrested outside a Starbucks for not wearing a mask while asking police officers where they were during multiple Black Lives Matter demonstrations and riots during which coronavirus rules were ignored.

UK COVID-19 regulations state that masks must be worn when entering shops, but there is no requirement to wear a mask outside.

The man apparently became embroiled in an argument with a Starbucks employee after being told to wear a mask.

The elderly man is seen remonstrating with officers as they put him in handcuffs.

“It takes two of you to arrest a 72-year-old man, what a pair of fucking heroes,” the man states as he is being cuffed.

“Bet you lot weren’t up in London for the fucking BLM,” he adds, before telling officers, “I don’t like being told I’ve got to wear a mask!”

The man then asks the officers if they bowed for BLM.

“This is what’s going to happen to all of you soon, you’re all gonna be under a bloody dictatorship.in about 6 months time you’ll all be getting this!” the man tells observers.

As we highlighted earlier this month, Piers Corbyn, the 73-year-old organizer of a ‘Unite For Freedom’ anti-lockdown protest, was arrested and fined £10,000.

However, organizers of Black Lives Matter protests in London have not been arrested or fined, with some officers even bowing in front of them despite numerous violent attacks on police by BLM rioters.

Video: Trump Slams China For Having “Unleashed This Plague Onto The World”

“We have waged a fierce battle against the invisible enemy — the China virus”

In a damning speech to the United Nations Tuesday, President Trump blasted China for covering up the coronavirus outbreak and failing to prevent a global pandemic, adding that the World Health Organisation was complicit.

“As we pursue this bright future, we must hold accountable the nation which unleashed this plague onto the world: China,” Trump said.

“The Chinese government and the World Health Organization, which is virtually controlled by China, falsely declared that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission,” the President added.

“Later they falsely said people without symptoms would not spread the disease,” Trump continued, adding that “The United Nations must hold China accountable for their actions.”

“We have waged a fierce battle against the invisible enemy — the China virus,” Trump asserted.

The President further attacked China more broadly, stating that “Those who attack America’s exceptional environmental record while ignoring China’s rampant pollution are not interested in the environment. They only want to punish America. And I will not stand for it.”

Turning to solutions, Trump promised to distribute a vaccine noting, “We will defeat the virus, and we will end the pandemic and enter a new era of prosperity, cooperation and peace.”

The President also criticised the UN, saying that it needs to concentrate on “the real problems of the world” including “terrorism, the oppression of women, forced labor, drug trafficking, human and sex trafficking, religious persecution, and the ethnic cleansing of religious minorities”.

China’s UN ambassador Zhang Jun later hit back at Trump, declaring “The world is at a crossroads. At this moment, the world needs more solidarity and cooperation, but not confrontation.”

President Xi Jinping, the Chinese leader, claimed that the country has “no intention to fight either a cold war or a hot one with any country”, adding that “Any attempt of politicizing the issue or stigmatization must be rejected.”

Xi advocated a global solution to the pandemic, via the WHO, proclaiming that “We will continue to narrow differences and resolve disputes with others through dialogue and negotiation. We will not seek to develop only ourselves or engage in zero sum game. Unilateralism is dead.”

Xi called for an embracing of globalism, declaring that “COVID-19 reminds us that we are living in an interconnected global village with a common stake.”

“Burying one’s head in the sand like an ostrich in the face of economic globalization, or trying to fight it with Don Quixote’s lance, goes against the trend of history. Let this be clear: the world will never return to isolation,” Xi urged in a blatant advocation of globalism.

The Chinese leader’s words are extremely rich, given that China deliberately seized global supply lines for medical supplies and disgustingly profited by not informing the rest of the globe of the extent of the spread of coronavirus back in January.

A US Foreign Affairs Committee report released this week concluded as much, noting that China covered up the coronavirus pandemic, and failed to follow international health guidelines which would have almost certainly prevented the global pandemic.

France: Woman Pulls Out Tape Measure to Enforce Social Distancing

Corona hysteria making people act bizarrely.

A video clip out of France shows a woman in a delicatessen pulling out a tape measure to enforce social distancing.

Yes, really.

The footage shows an older woman asking a younger woman in the queue behind her to move back.

She then fishes a tape measure out of bag and extends it out to make her point, before the younger woman moves further away.

The irony of the farce is that in complaining about a lack of social distancing, the older woman is herself violating social distancing by reaching out and almost touching the other woman.

The clip has gone viral, receiving almost 7 million views on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time an incident of this nature has been caught on camera.

As we highlighted back in July, another clip showed a woman hysterically screaming at people who had gathered near a lake while being restrained.

The woman screeched “Fuck you! Get out of here!” as she frantically flailed around holding a tape measure.

The intensity of the moral panic surrounding coronavirus that continues to be pumped out by the media is going to continue providing moments like this for many months to come.

As we previously highlighted, polls show that people think COVID-19 has killed far more people than it actually has, with Americans believing the virus has already claimed over 30 million lives.
