The city of San Francisco is suing the city’s school division to force it to reopen schools. They are doing this because of a dramatic surge, 66% increase in some instances, in the number of suicidal children in the city’s emergency wards.
It is yet another example of the damage being caused by the lockdowns. Many believe the lockdown cure is worse than the virus it’s supposed to be fighting.
The Blaze explains:
Following an alarming number of child suicides and suicide attempts, the city of San Francisco is suing its own school district to reopen.
The University of California-San Francisco Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay reported record-high numbers of suicidal children seen and treated last month. “The UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital has seen a 66% increase in the number of suicidal children in the emergency room, and a 75% increase in youth who required hospitalization for mental health services, the lawsuit said, quoting pediatricians, child psychiatrists and emergency room doctors,” USA Today reported. Doctors also saw an increase in anxiety, depression, and eating disorders among children.
The lawsuit calls for San Francisco’s public schools to reopen, saying classroom closures are “catalyzing a mental health crisis among school-aged children.” Schools have been closed for in-person learning since March.
