Excess deaths data show that the real Covid-19 deaths are 30 to 50% higher than the official count. In other words, despite all the preventive measures, we are already approaching 2 million deaths due to Covid-19. Without preventive measures we would have at least 10 times more deaths, just like Sweden has 12 times more deaths than Norway, even though it is false to say that Sweden did not take any preventive measures. In others words, if the conspiracy theorists and flat-Earthers were to have their way, we would already have 20 million deaths and would reach 50 million before the pandemic is over.
The long-term health effects of Covid-19 are well documented. There will be 10s of millions, or if the morons are to have their way, hundreds of millions of Covid patients with long term health problems. The future will show how many will have life-long health problems.
Despite all the preventive measures, many countries already reach their hospital capacity and their ICUs are full with Covid patients, leaving no capacity for other patients.
A number of countries including China, New Zealand, Vietnam, South Korea and Germany have shown that the pandemic can be controlled if appropriate measures are taken. If testing and contact tracing are implemented, we don't need any lockdowns. Lockdowns are necessary during exponential growth when all else has failed.
Look at the pandemic as a test run for future problems, which may be much worse. Countries that successfully combated the pandemic will not only save lives but also save the economy. Regimes that fail are bound to disappear. Your choice!
