Experts have been reporting fallout from lockdowns that include financial disaster,23 physical illness,24 rising mental health concerns25 and drug overdoses.26 Statistics Canada recently released information27 that attaches numerical data to the direct and indirect consequences caused by the lockdowns mandated by the government during 2020.
The report showed an excess mortality of 5,535 Canadians under the age of 65 in a 16-month time span between January 2020 and April 2021 from indirect consequences due to the pandemic. During those same 16 months, the report records 1,380 Canadians in the same age group who died from COVID-19.
The report lists the indirect consequences to include “delayed medical procedures, increased substance use, or a decline in deaths attributable to other causes, such as influenza.”28
The report concluded “that the excess mortality is, in large part, related to other factors such as increases in the number deaths attributed to causes associated with substance use and misuse, including unintentional (accidental) poisonings and diseases and conditions related to alcohol consumption.”29
In other words, there were more people who died under the age of 65 in Canada for reasons that were triggered by the lockdown than from the disease the government was reportedly trying to protect the citizens from.
Many of the people who died from COVID-19 in Canada were over the age of 85 with comorbid conditions that included cancer, nervous system disease, ischemic heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and dementia. According to their statistics, nearly 45% of those over the age of 85 who died from COVID-19 also had dementia.30
No Science Behind Lockdowns
The information from Canada is just one more nail in the coffin that shows lockdowns are not an effective way of reducing the transmission of an infectious disease. Yet, it is also likely information that you will not read in the mainstream media since government officials and certain “health experts” are intent on destroying the economy and creating an environment where you will say “yes” to their next recommendation without thinking twice.
The most recent reason officials want to institute masking and lockdowns again is the Delta variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. According to former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, this variant accounts for 10% of cases and is doubling every two weeks.31 Gottlieb believes the Delta variant is likely to spike a new epidemic heading into the fall.32
However, Gottlieb is basing his prediction on data from Neil Ferguson, a British academic33 whose statistical analysis of the situation has proved false on more than one occasion. Ferguson was the creator of the Imperial College model34 that predicted the death of 2 million Americans and 500,000 Britons unless lockdowns and social distancing measures were implemented.
One flaw in his model is that he assumed that 100% of the population would be susceptible to the virus.35 Instead, research data show up to 60% of people who have not been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 may have T Cell immunity from other similar coronaviruses, like the common cold.36
He was also the source of the prediction that the Alpha variant would be 50% to 70% more contagious than the previous variants in the U.K. and would infect children and teens to a greater extent than previous variants,37 neither of which has materialized.
Yet, certain health officials continue to use fearmongering narratives to ensure the vast majority of the population stays in step with their goal to institute vaccine passports and a mutated financial structure. When the calamitous predictions for the Alpha variant failed to come to fruition, the same narrative was engaged to focus your attention on the Delta variant, which governments are citing as they consider forcing lockdowns once again.
