US Study: 900,000 deaths due to lockdowns

With growing evidence, that lockdowns have done little to slow the virus, a new study conducted by researchers from Harvard, Duke and Johns Hopkins universities concluded that the lockdowns could result in 900,000 deaths in the US. The researchers added that the negative fallout from the lockdowns will hang over society for the next 15 years.

The Daily Wire explains:

A new economic paper argues that the “unprecedented unemployment shocks” amplified by lockdowns and other government restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic will cause nearly 900,000 deaths over the next 15 years.

Writing in a new National Bureau for Economic Research paper, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University and Duke University researchers stated, “Our results suggest that the toll of lives claimed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus far exceeds those immediately related to the acute COVID-19 critical illness and that the recession caused by the pandemic can jeopardize population health for the next two decades,” as the Foundation for Economic Education(FEE) reports.
