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.
CDC Admits There is No Proof COVID-19 is Airborne Virus and They Have Been Misleading the Public All Along
The so-called “experts” have failed us.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted that the organization has deceived the public throughout the entire coronavirus pandemic, backtracking on their claim that COVID-19 is an airborne virus.
“CDC is currently updating its recommendations regarding airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2,” the CDC explained in a note published earlier this week.
“This was an error on the part of our agency and I apologize on behalf of the CDC,” said John Brooks, chief medical officer for the CDC’s COVID-19 Emergency Response, while on a call with medical professionals on Monday.
The updated guidelines note that the COVID-19 “virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.”
“It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes. This is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads, but we are still learning more about how this virus spreads,” the new guidelines state, with the CDC parsing their words carefully to note there is no concrete evidence behind their assertion.
This is far from the first time that the CDC has admitted misleading the public about COVID-19 to stoke mass hysteria among the public, as Big League Politics has noted:
According to the CDC, that’s the number of “COVID-19-related deaths” in the United States as of August 31.
Of course, on the surface, nearly 170,000 deaths — especially with three months left in 2020 — is frightening to say the least.
But, as usual, the devil is in the details.
You see, of the 168,864 reported deaths, only 6% of them had COVID-19 listed as the ONLY cause of death.
The other 94% had, on average, 2.6 additional causes listed — per death.
“For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.” – CDC Website
In short, according to official data from the CDC, roughly 10,000 of the 168,864 “COVID-19 related deaths” can be attributed to COVID-19 alone.
10,000 — less than the average number of flu deaths per year in the United States.
So why are politicians — along with their pals in the fake news media — calling for more economy-destroying lockdowns and closings?
Is it really about protecting Americans from COVID-19. . .
. . . Or is it more about trying to effect the outcome of the November 3 General Election?
The scientific and medical experts have failed the public consistently during the COVID-19 scamdemic. The cause may go further than mere incompetence, with these experts likely exploiting the crisis to push their preferred technocratic political agenda of totalitarian globalism.
