CDC Data: More than 1 in 4 Young Adults Considered Suicide During Coronavirus Pandemic

That’s a tragedy.

Published

on

New data from the Center for Disease Control indicates that more than 25% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 experienced suicidal thoughts in the month of June, an elevated statistic likely a result of the coronavirus epidemic.

11% of the Americans in that age category thought “seriously” about suicide, a large contingent of the demographic.

Symptoms of anxiety disorder and depressive disorder increased considerably in the United States during April–June of 2020, compared with the same period in 2019,” the CDC reported on Thursday.

The data indicates that a massive 47% of Americans ages 18 to 29 experienced symptoms of anxiety or depression during the months of April and May. Rolling surveys indicate that rate is increasing, having crossed more than 50% in June.

The uptick of poor mental health is likely attributable to the ongoing coronavirus epidemic and the accompanying lockdown policies, which still keep everyday life, schooling, sports, and entertainment a thing of the past as the disease continues to spread. Financial hardship is likely integral to the mental health epidemic, with many Americans cut off from working for their livelihood, denied unemployment, and provided with little more than a single $1,200 TrumpBux stimulus check at a moment in which the economy is still largely shut down.

Americans can’t merely disregard the still-pressing threat of the coronavirus, but we must be mindful of the negative externalities inflicted upon society through lockdown policies.

Policy makers need to think seriously about the ramifications of shutdowns and how to properly balance public health and restrictions on everyday life going forward.

Biden COVID Advisor Paid to Sponsor Mask Brand Claimed Product “Deactivates” Coronavirus

This could represent a serious ethics violation.

Published

on

An incoming Biden White House coronavirus advisor promoted a brand of mask he claims “deactivates” coronavirus, claiming on his personal podcast that Livinguard masks offer more protection to their wearers than other products.

All masks can curb the spread of COVID-19. Why I like the Livinguard masks, and why I wear them, is because they actually deactivate coronavirus thanks to their incredible patented technology that’s been shown to mitigate the spread of microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.

Slavitt confirmed that Livinguard is a “sponsor” to him, in some capacity.

Livinguard masks can be washed and reused, and they sell for as much as $30 on the company’s website. Various manufacturers of facemasks have made claims of health superiority as it pertains to their product.

Slavitt’s claim about the masks is not evaluated by the FDA, and the questionable nature of his claims could potentially incur the scrutiny of the health organization.

The former Obama administration official’s claim that the masks “deactivate” COVID is highly questionable. Experts generally agree that masks are more effective at preventing asymptomatic carriers from spreading the virus than they are in protecting the wearer from it, and Slavitt’s language implies the material of the mask is more effective in neutralizing COVID molecules than other fabric and cloth surfaces. Such a claim would represent a dramatic development in the fight against COVID, and it’s very likely the material would be adopted en masse to deter further spread of the disease.

Is Biden’s incoming coronavirus advisor a for-profit snake oil salesman?
