Child suicides in lockdown have been four times as many as deaths from Covid-19. The sad truth of the UK

Researchers from University College London, the University of York, the University of Liverpool and the University of Bristol have published in a study , now awaiting peer review, that the coronavirus does not appear to present a significant risk to children. children compared to other age groups.

The study concluded:

"The risk of removing CYP (children and young people) from their normal activities during education and social events may prove to be a greater risk than that of SARS-CoV-2 itself."

SARS-CoV-2 is another name for the CCP virus.

The study revealed that only 25 children under the age of 18 have died of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic until the end of February 2021 in the UK. About 61 children in all died after testing positive, but in 36 cases it was found the virus "did not contribute to their deaths".

Now a truly traumatizing figure: in the same period there were 124 suicides among children and 268 deaths from trauma, the study authors found, while noting that the virus is "rarely fatal" for children.

"These new studies show that the risks of serious illness or death from SARS-CoV-2 are extremely low in children and young people," said Professor Russell Viner, senior author of the study, University College London, in a release this week .

"Our new findings are important as they will provide guidance on protection for young people and decisions on the vaccination of adolescents and children, not just in the UK but internationally."

Professor Lorna Fraser of the University of York added that "even when we found higher risks for some groups with severe medical problems, these risks were still very small compared to the risks seen in adults," explaining that people should know that risks of COVID-19 for children "are very low".

Meanwhile, Dr Elizabeth Whittaker of Imperial College London said the researchers hope that "the data will be reassuring for children, young people and their families."

In November, research revealed that there was a spike in cases of self-harm in the UK. An effect of isolation and lockdown, which psychologically devastated the boys.

“Children are a lost tribe in the pandemic. While they remain (for the most part) perplexed immune to the health consequences of COVID-19, their lives and daily routines have been turned upside down, ”wrote Dr. John Wright of the Bradford Royal Infirmary. Also important are drug overdoses in minors.

Therefore, rather than vaccinating minors, we should help them in their growth and in maintaining their psychological balance. Too bad that education and health are the least of the thoughts of those who want vaccines everywhere, or want to destroy culture and study with "Woke" and assimilated ideas.
