As we had forecast since the onset of the COVID War, the draconian lockdown rules would destroy the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions and kill more people than the virus.
A report released last week by UNICEF said the cut in essential health services in South Asia due to coronavirus restrictions may have contributed to the deaths of an additional 228,000 children under the age of five, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
“The generally restrictive measures taken to mitigate the COVID-19 outbreak have contributed to more deaths,” Atnafu Getachew Asfaw, the head of the UNICEF report said, according to the paper.
The Journal reported that in 2019, the region recorded 1.4 million deaths involving children under five. The report said the figure is expected to jump by about a quarter-million due to the lack of essential medical services that were not available. Additionally, the report said as many as 11,000 pregnant women in countries like Bangladesh and Sri Lanka could have died from a lack of access to health care.
