California: Suicides surging ahead of Covid deaths

It’s time to end the lock down that probably should never have been instituted in the first place. Many are warning of the looming crisis caused by the lock down with some even suggesting it may result in more deaths from suicides than the coronavirus.

The Washington Examiner writes:

Doctors in Northern California say they have seen more deaths from suicide than they’ve seen from the coronavirus during the pandemic.

“The numbers are unprecedented,” Dr. Michael deBoisblanc of John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, told ABC 7 News about the increase of deaths by suicide, adding that he’s seen a “year’s worth of suicides” in the last four weeks alone. 

DeBoisblanc said he believes it’s time for California officials to end the stay-at-home order and let people back out into their communities.

Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said that the stay-at-home orders would be in place until the curve flattened. That happened in mid-April, but Newsom refused to allow the state to return to normal. Apparently, he had moved the goal posts and told no one. But people have had enough, as businesses and people are starting to defy the governor’s stay-at-home orders.

An Australia study predicted that suicide deaths because of the lock down could significantly out number deaths from the coronavirus in that country. They added that the suicide fallout could extend years after the coronavirus panic has ended. READ: Report: Suicide rise from lockdowns to kill more than coronavirus in Australia:

Here are a few reasons why we are seeing increased suicides during the lock down:

  1. Social isolation: People are social beings and isolation is harming them mentally. Along with this, those struggling with depression are unable to seek help.
  2. Fear: The panic and paranoia about the pandemic stirred up largely by the mainstream media is causing harm. We may not see the fallout of its impact on the children for several years.
  3. The Economic fallout: People have lost their jobs and are seeing no hope for the future.
