Experts Warn Lockdown Is Creating ‘Unprecedented’ Mental Health Crisis

Experts in the fields of health, academia and charity have warned that the lockdown in the UK is creating a runaway pandemic of anxiety and depression.

Paul Farmer, chief executive of the mental health charity Mind said “It’s no understatement to say that the nation is facing a mental health pandemic.”

The charity has seen a massive increase in visits to its website, with unprecedented volumes of calls to helplines that deal with issues ranging from self harm to suicide.

“It’s clear that our mental health is deteriorating across the board – from mild mental health problems right through to those reaching crisis point and even having to be hospitalised,” Farmer further commented.

Dr Adrian James, president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, further warned “We’re in an unprecedented mental health crisis. Social isolation, loneliness, stress and anxiety, domestic abuse, bereavement, financial difficulties, unemployment and severe Covid-19 infection are all factors that have led to an increase in workload for mental health services.”

“Patients are experiencing more severe symptoms, and psychiatrists are seeing an increase in both emergency and urgent presentations compared to last year,” James noted.

Emma Thomas, CEO of YoungMinds, a parents helpline, said “The pandemic is deepening the crisis in young people’s mental health and there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that the impact could be significant and long-term.”

“Young people tell us that they’ve struggled to cope with the changes and loss of coping mechanisms brought on by the pandemic, with many experiencing social isolation, anxiety, and fears around their future,” Thomas noted.

University of Nottingham Professor Ellen Townsend, who has conducted extensive research into self-harm noted “We know that suicide ideation increased in young people in the first UK lockdown. There was a worrying signal that suicides in young people increased during the first lockdown.”

“We know that loneliness, social isolation, mental health issues have soared in young people,” she added.

Child behaviour expert Elizabeth O’Shea also warned that the lockdowns have “created a mental health ticking time bomb.”

Experts previously warned that lockdowns are a “panic measure” and a “monumental mistake on a global scale.”

“I believe the harm lockdown is doing to our education, health care access, and broader aspects of our economy and society will turn out to be at least as great as the harm done by COVID-19,” Infectious diseases expert and University of Edinburgh professor Mark Woolhouse has urged, noting “the cure was worse than the disease.”

Prior to the pandemic, there was already a suicide epidemic. Since the lockdowns, hospitals have reported an explosion in suicides and intentional injury.

Video: Pathetic CNN Scrambles To Sweep Rogan/Gupta Exchange Under The Carpet

These clowns can’t stop lying, even after they’ve been exposed

After CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta admitted that his own network lied about Joe Rogan and promoted fake news that the podcast host was taking horse de-wormer, the network scrambled to clean up the mess.

Gupta appeared with Don Lemon Thursday and the pair basically ignored everything the former said on Rogan’s podcast and continued the spin that exposed them in the first instance.

After describing Rogan’s podcast as ‘tongue in cheek’, Lemon stated that Rogan “did say something about Ivermectin and that I think wasn’t actually correct about CNN and lying, okay?”

“Ivermectin is a drug that is commonly used as a horse dewormer. So it is not a lie to say that the drug is used as a horse dewormer. I think that’s important and it is not approved for COVID, correct?” Lemon asked Gupta.

Gupta replied, “That’s right. That’s correct. It is not approved for COVID. And you’re right. I mean, the FDA even put out a statement saying, you know, basically reminding people, it was a strange sort of message from the FDA, but that said, you’re not a horse. You’re not a cow. Stop taking this stuff is essentially what they said, referring to Ivermectin.”

Referring to the podcast appearance, Lemon also told Gupta “you held your own, though. It was very good,” when it was clearly an absolute horror train wreck for him.

These clowns can’t stop lying, even after they’ve been exposed. They live in a world of their own make-believe.

As Rogan has repeatedly noted, he was prescribed Ivermectin by a doctor, and it’s a common drug for human use. It is not horse de-wormer.

    Videos: Pilots Speak Out Against Vaccine Mandate ‘Dictatorship’

    “An ultimatum is not the right way to go about this.”

    Two more pilots have spoken out publicly against airlines attempting to institute vaccine mandates in the wake of Southwest airlines cancelling hundreds of flights and then denying it has anything to do with pilots refusing to fly in protest.

    Speaking with Tucker Carlson Tuesday night, Joshua Yoder, commercial pilot and co-founder of US Freedom Flyers, urged “I am not going to take a mandate. I am not going to be coerced into doing something I don’t believe in.”

    “I believe in freedom,” Yoder continued, adding “I’m here to support the freedom of my fellow employees and all people across this country.” 

    Explaining why he is against the mandates, Yoder said “My motive for resisting it is primarily religious for myself. Among my friends I saw a need. Many of us don’t want to take this. People were being coerced.”

    “We have all the control and the control comes from a simple word, and that’s ‘no,'” Yoder noted, adding “We just don’t need to comply.”

    He warned that if airlines try to force vaccines on pilots as per the government’s mandate, there will be a huge knock on effect on distribution and the shipping industry.

    “The transportation sector is the heart and soul of this country. It’s a very delicate system. If there’s a disruption in one part of the system, it has a catastrophic effect among the rest of the systems which is going to effect commerce, it’s going to effect trade,” Yoder explained.

    “If you have flights reduced by 30% because 30% of pilots are fired because they won’t take the vaccine, this is going to affect how your goods get here from overseas, how they are distributed to the store,” he said.

    Yoder added, “The same thing is happening with the truckers, it’s happening in the shipping industry. Those Amazon boxes that typically show up in two days, you might be looking at three weeks.”

    “If these companies fire us and they fire 30% of the workforce, aircraft are going to stop moving and it’s going to affect you. It’s going to affect your air travel and it’s going to affect the economy,” Yoder further warned.

    Watch:

    Speaking with Fox & Friends earlier in the day, commercial airline pilot Shawn Walker said he will not go along with the vaccine “ultimatum” for his employer, who he chose not to name on air.

    “My wife and I, we looked at the research, we spoke with our medical professionals and we don’t believe it’s right for us,” Walker said.

    He added, “We believe we have a choice, and we should have a choice. And so we’re going to continue working with groups like US Freedom Flyers to help all Americans who feel an ultimatum is not the right way to go about this.”

    Speaking of his fellow pilots, Walker noted “They’re scared. Some of them are single dads, and they’re in a situation where they’re like, ‘Man, if I don’t, if I don’t succumb to this dictatorship, if you will, I may not be able to feed my children.’”

    “People are frightened from the airline industry,” Walker continued, adding “They want to speak out. But there again, we can be attacked by our companies, we can be attacked by other people.”

    “My health and my medical choice is more important to me than my career at this point,” he emphasised, warning that mandating vaccines for airline staff is only the beginning.

    “There’s even bills on the table, like H.R. 4980, that’s really going after the passengers. They’re trying to push something through that says all passengers leaving any airport in the US or territory is going to have to be vaccinated,” Walker warned.

    Watch:

    Southwest Airlines continues to deny that thousands of flight cancellations are because pilots and staff staged a coordinated ‘sickout’ to protest against the vaccine mandates.

    In a CNBC interview, CEO Gary Kelly again denied that flight cancellations were due to pilots revolting against vaccine mandates:

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also rubbished the idea, and claimed vaccine mandates are “good for the economy”:

    Her response prompted Carlson to respond “To say there is no evidence there is no evidence this is a direct result to standing up to Joe Biden’s mandates is a lie.”

    “Lying, lying, lying… Over at the White House Biden’s top flack was doing what she does every day, lying, lying, lying…” Carlson added.

    Video: NY Governor Says Unvaxxed Health Workers Will Be FIRED, Replaced With NATIONAL GUARD Soldiers

    The plan is to FIRE the nation’s finest nurses and doctors and replace them with trained soldiers who will be forced to obey orders

    After promising last week to “replace” any health workers in the state who refuse to get COVID vaccinations, New York governor Kathy Hochul stated over the weekend that their replacements will be service members with the National Guard.

    Hochul intimated last week that the workers would be replaced with foreigners, and that she was in contact with the State Department to “find out about visas for foreign workers, on a limited basis, to bring more nurses over here.”

    Now, it seems, there is an updated plan to fire unvaxxed first responders and put soldiers in their places.

    “We’ll be nation leading with our mandate,” Hochul said Monday, adding “which strikes at midnight tonight when everyone is expected, in a hospital in the state of New York or a health care facility to have been vaccinated.”

    News 8 WROC also notes that the direction applies not only to nurses and doctors “but also to others who work in health care institutions, like food service workers, administrators and cleaners.”

    Hochul continued, “I will be signing an executive order to give me the emergency powers necessary to address the shortages where they occur.”

    “That’s going to allow me to deploy the National Guard who are medically trained, deploy people who’ve been retired who may have had a licensed labs, bring in people from elsewhere,” Hochul declared.

    “That,” she noted, “is not my first position. That my friends, my desire is to have the people who’ve been out there continue to work in their jobs, work in them safely and to all the other health care workers who are vaccinated. They also deserve to know that the people they’re working with will not get them sick.”

    Chilling.

    Firing the nation’s finest nurses and health care workers and replacing them with trained soldiers who will be forced to obey orders.
