A recent study out of the United Kingdom estimates that upwards of 75,000 people could die as a result of the lockdowns imposed by the country’s governments. This is happening because lockdowns are impacting people’s access to needed medical care, and is resulting in such things as missed cancer diagnoses.

It’s another example of how many believe the lockdown cure is turning out to be worse than the disease it was supposed to be fighting.

The Daily Mail explains:

Nearly 75,000 people could die from non-Covid causes as a result of lockdown, according to devastating official figures buried in a 188-page document.

The startling research, presented to the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), will further increase pressure on Boris Johnson to hold back on introducing further coronavirus restrictions.

The document reveals 16,000 people died as a result of the chaos in hospitals and care homes in March and April alone.

It estimates a further 26,000 will lose their lives within a year if people continue to stay away from A&E and the problems in social care persist.
