US Death Rate soaring…

The study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, finds March and April deaths unrelated to COVID-19 rose sharply in the five states with the most COVID-19 fatalities. Those states include Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.

Compared to January and February averages, diabetes deaths rose by 96 percent in those states. Deaths tied to heart disease (89%), Alzheimer’s disease (64%), and stroke (35%) also saw disturbing jumps. The study adds deaths in New York City due to heart disease and diabetes both rose by over 350 percent during that time.

Researchers believe fear of getting infected with COVID-19 is keeping many people from seeking proper medical care. The study adds patients in the hardest hit areas may not be getting enough care because local hospitals are overwhelmed with coronavirus cases.

“We can’t forget about mental health,” says Woolf. “A number of people struggling with depression, addiction and very difficult economic conditions caused by lockdowns may have become increasingly desperate, and some may have died by suicide.”

    • Depends, what I’m afraid of is that all the petty dictators and want-to-be ‘Dear Leaders’ have become addicted to the heady feeling of power and importance these last four months; if they miss it too much they’ll find another excuse to keep that boot on OUR neck.
