CDC: Drug Overdoses Skyrocket Amid COVID Lockdowns

New data from the CDC shows that drug overdoses have skyrocketed during the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic.

They said although they were rising before the pandemic an even bigger increase came during the pandemic.

NY Post:

Drug overdose deaths have substantially increased in the U.S., and set a new record for fatalities in the year ending in May, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced.

The CDC’s Health Alert Network released a report Thursday saying 81,230 drug overdose deaths occurred during that time starting in June 2019.

“This represents a worsening of the drug overdose epidemic in the United States and is the largest number of drug overdoses for a 12-month period ever recorded,” the agency said.

The CDC noted that “after declining 4.1% from 2017 to 2018, the number of overdose deaths increased 18.2% from the 12-months ending in June 2019.”

Drug overdose fatalities were already on the rise before the start of 2020, but accelerated once the COVID-19 pandemic stuck, the CDC says.

Yet the “experts” keep pushing lockdowns…..
