Hundreds Of Doctors Warn Trump Of ‘Exponentially Growing Negative Health Consequences’ Of Shutdown

Excerpt:

More than 600 medical doctors wrote a letter to President Donald Trump this week that warned the president that continued shutdowns in response to the coronavirus pandemic are going to cause a serious “mass casualty event.”

“Thousands of physicians in all specialties and from all States would like to express our gratitude for your leadership,” the letter, obtained by Fox News, began. “We write to you today to express our alarm over the exponentially growing negative health consequences of the national shutdown.”

“In medical terms, the shutdown was a mass casualty incident,” the letter continued. “During a mass casualty incident, victims are immediately triaged to black, red, yellow, or green. The first group, triage level black, includes those who require too many resources to save during a mass crisis. The red group has severe injuries that are survivable with treatment, the yellow group has serious injuries that are not immediately life threatening, and the green group has minor injuries.”

“The red group receives highest priority,” the letter continued. “The next priority is to ensure that the other two groups do not deteriorate a level. Decades of research have shown that by strictly following this algorithm, we save the maximum number of lives. Millions of Americans are already at triage level red. These include 150,000 Americans per month who would have had a new cancer detected through routine screening that hasn’t happened, millions who have missed routine dental care to fix problems strongly linked to heart disease/death, and preventable cases of stroke, heart attack, and child abuse. Suicide hotline phone calls have increased 600%.”

“Tens of millions are at triage level yellow,” the letter continued. “Liquor sales have increased 300-600%, cigarettes sales have increased, rent has gone unpaid, family relationships have become frayed, and millions of well-child check-ups have been missed. Hundreds of millions are at triage level green. These are people who currently are solvent, but at risk should economic conditions worsen. Poverty and financial uncertainty is closely linked to poor health.”

“A continued shutdown means hundreds of millions of Americans will downgrade a level,” the letter continued. “We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients. The downstream health effects of deteriorating a level are being massively under-estimated and under-reported. This is an order of magnitude error. It is impossible to overstate the short, medium, and long-term harm to people’s health with a continued shutdown.”

Oddly enough I was speaking with a woman yesterday while trying to get reimbursed for out of pocket expenses from a service call to my house that my home warranty company should have paid months ago and while speaking with the woman in that department, she was telling me that her aunt is an RN who went to NY to help out during the crisis and her aunt said that this whole self isolation things is ONLY going to make infections go UP because by cutting ourselves off from being out and about with cooties that our bodies fight off all the time, we're insuring that the cooties will hit us HARDER when we come into contact with them.

Gosh, whodathunk that someone who is on the front lines and understands the reality of this sort of thing would have a common sense POV while the 'experts' and politicos making hay have a totally different mindset entirely?

So how long will it be before ANY proponent of the shutdowns steps forward and says they were wrong to support them, that we never should have done it in the first place and that we need to get back to normal NOW!?!?

That’s not part of the plan.  Take away a bunch of liberties, give only a few of them back, and act like you are doing the people a favor.  That’s the plan.  That’s always the plan.

We know our resident ones sure won't!
