Lockdowns do NOT save lives!
Lockdowns kill lives and destroy economies.
In another revealing analysis on the impact of lockdowns, it has been estimated that more than 3,000 people with diabetes unnecessarily died because they were unable to get check ups.
The Telegraph reports that a NHS study found a move to remote healthcare and a reduction in routine care in the first 12 months of the pandemic had “absolutely devastating” consequences for diabetics and resulted in them being “pushed to the back of the queue,” in the words of Chris Askew, the chief executive of Diabetes UK.
A lack of diabetes checks following the first Covid lockdown may have killed more than 3,000 people, a major NHS study suggests https://t.co/Ubmy8YxWM8

Research shows Covid lockdowns blamed for deaths of more than 3,000 diabetics in the UK. but of course lockdowns were a great idea!!! That doesn’t include the many thousands who will die because of late or undiagnosed cancers, delayed surgery etc etc https://t.co/LUNW5W8Fvb

Summit News reported:
The study found that in the course of just under four months, non-Covid deaths among diabetics soared by 11 per cent, resulting in 3075 excess deaths, with a particular surge in deaths from heart disease.
The research also reveals that during 2020/21 only just over a quarter of diabetics were able to get full check ups on the NHS, down from close to half the previous year.
The study, which has been published in Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, also found a whopping 66 percent increase in mortality rates for those who were unable to get full checks.
The figures are said to be conservative estimates because the analysis only compared deaths in England for two 15-week periods.
The Telegraph also noted:
Researchers said some diabetes patients may have kept away from appointments because of the fear of catching Covid. But they added that disrupted access to routine care and “repurposing of the healthcare workforce” to focus on the pandemic meant those with diabetes took “a double mortality hit.”
Lockdowns did nothing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
However, they resulted in catastrophic health, economic, and social devastation across the globe.
These findings add further proof that lockdowns kill.
