1/11 THE RISE OF STILLBIRTHS DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS
This issue continues to be underreported.
Stillbirth rates during CV19 lockdowns have spiked globally and the reasons are twofold.
Why this issue has not been widely reported is also multifaceted. #RationalGround
2/11 A primary reason for the uptick in stillbirths due to lockdowns is from reduced access to medical care:
“CV19 has triggered a devastating secondary health crisis for women, children and adolescents due to disruptions in life-saving health services,” reliefweb.int/report/world/n…
3/11 The potential increase in the developing world due to lockdowns is devastating:
“A pandemic-induced 50% reduction in health services, could cause nearly 200K additional stillbirths over a 12-month period in 117 low and middle income countries…” news.un.org/en/story/2020/…
2/7 If we first look at total deaths/100k since March and cases/100k in the last 30 days (to show the current trend). We see that Illinois is performing worse in both.
Illinois has slightly more overall deaths and almost double the cases.
3/7 Next, looking at current hospitalization data (provided by @HHS) we see again that Illinois is performing worse than Florida with a higher % of hospital beds filled and a higher % of Covid-19 patients in hospitals:
1/6 THE QUIET PROFESSIONALS
These are the researchers who often get lost in the noise of Twitter. Their important work at times runs counter to the accepted Covid-19 dogma and thus does not get amplified.
Read their work, share it with others, and seek out more.
Gabriela found the potential herd immunity threshold for CV19 and could be much lower than predicted. Her research was rejected because it could impact public policy and influence a relaxation of strict CV19 lockdown mandates.
3/7 Sep 9th: “People are really distressed, particularly the elderly,” said Bolden. “They have been cut off and they’ve been made to feel vulnerable when they didn’t feel vulnerable before.” theguardian.com/world/2020/sep…
You may not know it due to the lack of media coverage, but there has been a letter written each month since March by separate groups of doctors, experts, and citizens denouncing varying aspects of the CV19 panic
“...the hospital system must continue to balance the needs of caring for patients with COVID-19 while providing vital services to others in the community…” aha.org/lettercomment/…
“Staggering numbers of people have lost jobs, incomes, and ability to live life normally, all of which lead to loss of life that could quickly exceed losses from the virus.” ronjohnson.senate.gov/public/index.c…
1/5 Do we even have a functional news media at this point? #twill
@GovPritzker said high school sports can’t resume due to safety and then referenced a CV19 outbreak involving a baseball team in Illinois
Spoiler alert: He misrepresented the situation to fit his agenda
2/5 From the news about the cases, it is clear the players DID NOT contract CV19 due to baseball related activities. The majority of the players live together in off-campus housing and contracted it from those environments.
Fun fact, high school students don’t live together.
3/5 Reports indicate 30 of the cases are related to players and 50% of players tested were positive; there’s only 20 rostered players and no mention of how many were tested. Anyone concluding that baseball caused the outbreak or the players were the vector are making a huge leap.
Alexis de Tocqueville coined the term in the 1800s. It describes how a country can be overrun by a litany of small, complicated rules and how this type of administrative control breeds fear, uncertainty, and doubt in a populace.
2/6 “After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community.”
3/6 “It covers the surface of society with a network of small complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate.”
