In a testimony for a Buck Institute webinar, Dr. Robert Redfield said that the US has a far greater number of suicides now than it does deaths from C-19 coronavirus. And drug overdose deaths also greatly outnumber deaths from C-19, he said.
While Dr. Redfield did not say where he obtained the suicide numbers, “a doctor at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, California, claimed the facility has ‘seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last 4 weeks,’” Townhall reported.
If that is not enough, lockdowns and closed schools are severely harming young people’s mental health, he added.
In respect to children contracting C-19 coronavirus, Dr. Redfield said statistics so far show their risk of getting the virus is about 1 in 1,000,000. In comparison, their risk of flu is 5 to 10X higher.
On the other hand, the risk to teachers is potentially greater because they may have comorbidities like diabetes and heart disease that put them at higher risk of acquiring The China Virus and of having more severe symptoms.
