An Order Of Magnitude Error

600 Doctors Petition Trump For Swift End To Deadly Lockdown

Published May 27, Written by Steve Straub: More than 600 doctors signed onto a letter sent to President Trump Tuesday pushing him to end the ‘national shutdown’ aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus, calling the widespread state orders keeping businesses closed and kids home from school a “mass casualty incident” with “exponentially growing health consequences.”

“We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients”

The letter outlines a variety of consequences that the doctors have observed resulting from the coronavirus shutdowns, including patients missing routine checkups that could detect things like heart problems or cancer, increases in substance and alcohol abuse, and increases in financial instability that could lead to “poverty and financial uncertainty,” which “is closely linked to poor health.”

“We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients,” the doctors say in their letter, “The downstream health effects are being massively under-estimated and under-reported. This is an order of magnitude error.”
The letter continues: “The millions of casualties of a continued shutdown will be hiding in plain sight, but they will be called alcoholism, homelessness, suicide, heart attack, stroke or kidney failure. In youths it will be called financial instability, unemployment, despair, drug addiction, unplanned pregnancies, poverty and abuse.”
“Because the harm is diffuse, there are those who hold that it does not exist. We, the undersigned, know otherwise.”
This is a really big deal.
If the governors continue with their shutdowns more people will end up dying than killed by Covid-19. We cannot let the cure be worse than the disease. Lets stop the madness!
