there seems to be quite a strong movement developing in the USA of doctors providing "second opinions" and saying that the continued lockdown does not support medical / clinical wisdom (a triage system should have been applied, without bureaucratic interference) (and no, this is not conspiracy stuff - I would have posted it on the other thread if it was)
extract from their letter to the president:
"We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients.
The downstream health effects of deteriorating a (triage)
level are being massively under-estimated and under-reported. This is an order of magnitude error.
It is impossible to overstate the short, medium, and long-term harm to people’s health with a continued shutdown.
Losing a job is one of life’s most stressful events, and the effect on a person’s health is not lessened because it also has happened to 30 million other people. Keeping schools and universities closed is incalculably detrimental for children, teenagers, and young adults for decades to come.
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."
in the letter sent, there were over 1200 signatures of qualified Medical Physicians attached.
I believe there are over 3.6 million other signatures
