Thousands of Britons who suffer heart attacks and strokes are dying at home instead of seeking medical treatment, a new study has found, as new government figures show 75,000 are projected to die as a result of lockdown measures.There are not 200k American deaths from COVID-19. There were about 50k or so excess deaths in April and May, and those were attributable to COVID-19.
Stay-at-home orders prompted countless people suffering from serious medical conditions to avoid hospitals, according to the study’s findings, which were published in the Heart medical journal and first reported by the Daily Mail. The paper noted that deaths from heart disease in private homes surged by 35 percent from March to July, resulting in 2,279 more fatalities on average over the past six years.
This study suggests that a lot of those excess might have been caused by the lockdown, not COVID-19.
