“Most of the excess mortality is due to people who didn’t even have Covid at the time of death,” explains Maria M. Hofmarcher, co-author of the study entitled: “The pandemic has increased the risk of death for everyone.”
A lockdown cannot heal, but only pause life. In addition, there is a risk of massive collateral damage, warned TV doctor Dr. Marcus Franz weeks ago. And unfortunately he was right about that.
If possible, do not go to the hospital, that was the message in the first lockdown. Some people took that to heart too much – and died at home from heart attacks or other complications, the “Standard” now also reports. Even in the second year of the pandemic, things didn’t get any better. The postponement of supposedly non-essential operations, such as heart surgery, caused a lot of collateral damage.
