CDC Director Says There are More Suicides and Overdoses than COVID Deaths

Micaela Burrow Posted: Jul 28, 2020 3:15 PM

EXCERPT:

Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield testified in a Buck Institute webinar that suicides and drug overdoses have surpassed the death rate for COVID-19. Redfield argued that lockdowns and lack of public schooling constituted a disproportionally negative impact on young peoples’ mental health.

“We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID,” he said.

Roughly 146,000 people have died from COVID or COVID-related causes in the U.S., according to CDC data.

The most recent publicized federal data records 48,000 deaths from suicide and at least 1.4 million attempts in 2018. In 2019, almost 71,000 people died from drug overdoses.

Where Redfield obtained his data is unknown, although a doctor at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, CA claimed the facility has “seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.” He did not say how many deaths occurred, or whether the statement was exaggerated for emphasis.

"What I have seen recently, I have never seen before," Hansen said. "I have never seen so much intentional injury,” said a nurse from the same hospital. 

And while health authorities will not have verified data regarding suicides and drug overdoses in 2020 for two more years, local reporting indicates that suicide fatalities have increased year-on-year.

I don’t get it. We get up-to-the-minute death counts on COVID, as well as case counts, but how can you not have a similar up-to-the-minute case or death counts on other things?  Why does it take two years to get this years data?

Something tells me that some of those suicides and overdoses have already been counted in the Covid column.

Which stem from the hysteria and fear fomented by the media and politicians seeking to control and subjugate the American people further, which means that it is COVID related and their death certificates will be changed to reflect that COVID was a contributing factor and therefore that is what killed them.

When you consider how many millions of lives have been destroyed, jobs lost, businesses bankrupted, etc . . . How many countless thousands who worked hard all their lives and scrimped and saved and finally fulfilled their lifelong dream of opening their own shop/cafe/deli/bar/whatever only to have it destroyed by draconian (and totally unnecessary) bans and restrictions and prohibitions and such . . . How many people's life savings, retirement plans, kids' college funds, etc, are now gone . . . And ALL because the Leftists hate the President and will do anything to destroy his administration's great economic achievements . . .

 . . . Well let's just say I'm seriously surprised there haven't been a lot more suicides.

<_<

Which tells you that the average American is stronger than most people think, and more resilient, even if only from necessity.
