It was the lockdowns that created havoc, not pandemic | Beaufort County Now | Damage from lockdowns

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Authored by Charis Calton via The Mises Institute,

It may be years before we fully realize the ramifications of the lockdown policies governments around the world have imposed on their citizens in response to covid-19, but evidence of the costs is starting to trickle in.

A recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) surveyed thousands of high school students on the effects of the pandemic.

“Since the beginning of the pandemic,” the study reports, “more than half of students found it more difficult to complete their schoolwork (66%) and experienced emotional abuse by a parent or other adult in their home (55%),” which correlated heavily with students who “experienced insecurity via parental job loss (29%), personal job loss (22%), and hunger (24%).”

A related CDC study, released the same day, examined the effects the pandemic has had on the mental health of high school students.

It found that “during the 12 months before the survey, 44.2% experienced persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness, 19.9% had seriously considered attempting suicide, and 9.0% had attempted suicide.”

Of course we all know the economic damage was horrible and the lockdowns/stay at home orders, did nothing to control anything but the people and destroy people's lives.  The children are so far behind from the computer classes at home, you have to wonder if they will ever catch up or will things be dumbed down further to compensate for the educational damage done.
