1.4 Million People to Die From Untreated TB Due to Coronavirus Lockdown

Paul Joseph Watson:

Around 1.4 million people are expected to die from untreated TB infections due to the coronavirus lockdown, according to research published by Imperial College London and Johns Hopkins University.

“Up to 6.3 million more people are predicted to develop TB between now and 2025 and 1.4 million more people are expected to die as cases go undiagnosed and untreated during lockdown,” reports the Guardian.

The figures are based on the premise of a 3 month lockdown and a 10-month period of restoring services after lockdown is lifted.

Lucica Ditiu, head of a global partnership to end tuberculosis, said she was “sickened” by the revelation and that the situation would set back global efforts to end TB by eight years.

“The fact that we’ve rolled back to 2013 figures and we have so many people dying, this for me is sickening,” said Ditiu. “I am outraged that just by not being able to control what we do … and forgetting about programmes that exist we lose so much, starting with the loss of the lives of people.”

Concentrating on finding a vaccine for COVID-19 will also delay efforts to find an adult vaccine for TB, which kills 1.5 million people a year, more than any other infectious disease. Coronavirus has claimed the lives of 275,000 people globally so far.

As we previously highlighted, a data analyst consortium in South Africa found that the economic consequences of the country’s lockdown will lead to 29 times more people dying than the coronavirus itself.

Professor Richard Sullivan also warned that there will be more excess cancer deaths in the UK than total coronavirus deaths due to people’s access to screenings and treatment being restricted as a result of the lockdown.

His comments were echoed by Peter Nilsson, a professor of internal medicine and epidemiology at Lund University, who said, “It’s so important to understand that the deaths of COVID-19 will be far less than the deaths caused by societal lockdown when the economy is ruined.”

This once again begs the question, if the lockdowns were supposed to save lives and yet will end up costing even more lives in other areas – what was the point?

Will they call them Chinese flue deaths?

  1. While I take the point PJW is making, please note this is the same Imperial College that produced the garbage figures on Corona Virus that got us into the mess we are currently in.

  2. Covid lockdown about to be re-branded as Climate lockdown, these people are sick, today the Climate change Minister has announced what we long suspected this complete farce is about to be shoved down our necks as an excuse to in-debt our children in the name of the quasi religion called Man Made climate change, a debunked fraud, the modelers who brought you the covid lock down, unprecedented in history are bent on using the same fear tactics to bankrupt the entire country.
    Recovery funds earmarked for green fantasy projects, compulsory track and trace technologies, continuing 2 year lock downs and forced vaccinations.
    This in the name of a Carbon free economy pushed by completely dedicated Communist stooges, they have no clue that extra co2 greens the earth not heats it, or that every person breaths out co2 every day of your life, or maybe they do and their Carbon free plan is really thinly veiled Eugenics, a plan to depopulate YOU.
    Whats next? delayed or canceled elections so you cant fight back against their edicts, suppression of your rights to free speech, destruction of the right to protest just like the commie crack down in HONG KONG.
    No doubt ill see a few of you in re education camp.
    If you think im tripping then do your own research, start with Cindys last U.N. speech pushing One World Government in the Chinese Model.
    The time for complacency is past, now its time to take our country back!!

  3. Now is the time. But it won’t happen, Kiwis are cucked little cowards.
    How easily we folded to an illegal lockup only to ask questions too late.

    When will we rise

    We probably won’t.

  4. The other thing about TB not mentioned in the article is that the disease is actually becoming more deadly because it is now resistant to most of the antibiotics that were formerly used to treat it with great success.
