The UK government’s own lackeys at Sage are estimating a total of around 100,000 deaths due to closing of healthcare systems and other effects of mostly previous lockdown measures. Others have arrived at similar or greater numbers just for excess cancer deaths.
It’s probably fair to take an estimate between these numbers, since there is motive on both sides to take one stance or the other. Let’s say 200,000. Then increase it to take current and future measures into account, but say 200,000 for now.
We can see from Sweden, who had far fewer deaths per 100,000 than the UK, Belgium etc (but who still made mistakes with care homes) that lockdown was unnecessary and that not having one/many certainly didn’t result in any doomsday scenario. They will of course have a non-zero number of deaths as a result of the international Project Fear, but they didn’t shut their country and healthcare system down.
It’s almost as if healthcare systems are needed for healthcare and there are other more deadly diseases out there we should prioritize. What effect is generally stressing the population like this having too?
