    So the fear campaign put on by governments and the media directly resulted in people losing their lives prematurely. How many people's (people that were at extremely low risk of morality from covid) lives have been shortened and worsened due medical issues that came from the additional financial strain, unnecessary stress and depression by governments reactions and this fear campaign telling everyone that it is not even safe to go to the hospital? The world's reaction to this virus has been a complete sh*t show and has, IMO, done far more harm than good.

    I'm sure Covid has acted in unison with other diseases, which has led to questions of what caused the death. That said, it's clear that social gatherings have resulted in more infection and death. Social gathering doesn't cause an increase in cancer, heart attacks and strokes. I think it's pretty clear that masks, social distancing and washing hands led to a reduction in the spread of Covid. In addition, more infected people will lead to more infected people, this is not true for the diseases that aren't infectious.

    The Wall Street Journal January 2021 ........The recorded death count from the Covid-19 pandemic as of Thursday is nearing 2 million. The true extent is far worse.

    More than 2.8 million people have lost their lives due to the pandemic, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of data from 59 countries and jurisdictions. This tally offers the most comprehensive view yet of the pandemic’s global impact. Deaths in these places last year surged more than 12% above average levels.

    Less than two-thirds of that surge has been attributed directly to Covid-19. Public-health experts believe that many, if not most, of the additional deaths were directly linked to the disease, particularly early in the pandemic when testing was sparse. Some of those excess deaths came from indirect fallout, from health-care disruptions, people avoiding the hospital and other issues.

    It just goes to show how deadly this virus is.. As we all know there have been no deaths from Dengue, Rabies, Pneumonia, Flu or Cancers since this virus was discovered..
