How may doctors? 500 according to a story in the Washington Times.
They point out that as the shutdowns continue more and more sick people are being denied much needed treatment for existing illness and disease (other than the Covid 19).
As reported in the Washington Times:
Hundreds of doctors wrote a letter to President Trump this week asking him to end the coronavirus shutdown, saying it is a “mass casualty incident” spurring deaths from other factors such as substance abuse and suicides.
The letter, shared online, estimates about 150,000 Americans each month that the shutdown remains in place would have had new cancer detected, millions more are missing dental exams that could discover problems linked to heart disease, while others are experiencing domestic violence like child abuse.
“Suicide hotline phone calls have increased 600%,” the letter sent to the president on Tuesday read.
It also notes liquor sales have increased 300 to 600 percent, and cigarette sales have also gone up.
The letter adds, “We are alarmed at what appears to be the lack of consideration for the future health of our patients. … It is impossible to overstate the short, medium, and long-term harm to people’s health with a continued shutdown.”
Blue State governors are drunk on power and are reluctant to give it up. Police claim to be enforcing the “law.” They are doing no such thing. The orders of governors gone rogue are not laws. The legislation must first debate a proposed law, allow for comment by the public, and then pass something that is referred to the governor for signature or veto. Then and only then is a law created.
Edicts from fascist-acting governors are not laws and police should refuse to enforce them. In many places, the police and sheriffs understand this and have announced they will not enforce these illegal mandates.
Governors such as Governor Kemp in Georgia and Governor DeSantis in Florida who have begun to get rid of the shutdowns in their states are accused of having blood on their hands. Au Contraur, it is the blue state governors turned dictators that will have blood on their hands for all those who die because of being denied proper medical treatment while the idiotic shutdowns remain.
