Did lockdowns actually increase the number of deaths?

There have been several studies revealing that lockdowns were an absolute failure, if their primary purpose was to stop people dying from COVID (here, here and here.)

In fact, it may be worse than we thought, as a new study by University of California economists and the RAND Corporation concluded that the lockdowns or stay-in-place orders may have actually increased the number of deaths.

The researchers studied the impact of lockdowns in all 50 American states and 43 countries, but instead of focussing on just COVID deaths, they looked at all deaths (including COVID) in the various jurisdictions.

We know that lockdowns contributed to an increase in drug overdoses and mental health issues and as well delays in medical care. This resulted in people dying because of stay-at-home orders.

Their research concluded that simply adding one week to a stay-at-home order resulted in an increase of 2.7 deaths per 100,000 people.
