Depression skyrocketing in children due to lockdowns, study


A study conducted by researchers at the MRC Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit located at the University of Cambridge in Britain revealed that the lockdowns have caused depression rates to skyrocket among children in Britain. No one knows if this will have long-term consequences.

The Daily Wire explains:

Rates of depression have skyrocketed among children under COVID-19 lockdown, according to a new study from the University of Cambridge.

The study, which tracked 168 children between the ages of 7-1/2 and 11-1/2 before and after the U.K. government imposed the first lockdown, concluded there was “a significant increase in depression symptoms” among the participants.

“During the UK lockdown, children’s depression symptoms have increased substantially, relative to before lockdown,” the study read. “The scale of this effect has direct relevance for the continuation of different elements of lockdown policy, such as complete or partial school closures.”

These lockdowns have become so politicized that no one cares about the negative physical and mental fallout from the lockdowns. Over 51,000 epidemiologists, medical researchers and practitioners have called for an end of the lockdown because they cause more damage than the virus they are ineffectively fighting.
