Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield claimed in a Buck Institute Webinar that more Highschool suicide and drug overdoses than from COVID-19.
The CDC Director says we’re seeing far greater suicides and drug overdoses than they are from COVID. If the CDC Director is right and it’s even remotely close, we need to stop this right away. The cure can’t be worse than the virus. https://t.co/fkoarJCdJ0

Center for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield said in a Buck Institute webinar that suicides and drug overdoses have surpassed the death rate for COVID-19 among high school students. Redfield argued that lockdowns and lack of public schooling constituted a disproportionally negative impact on young peoples’ mental health.
“But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, particularly in high schools,” Redfield said. “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.”
This is what the Mainstream Press refuses to cover. They claim the health benefits are only on the side of lockdowns. Of course, this isn’t true. There health downsides to the lockdowns as well.
