Five Times More Children Committed Suicide Than Died Of COVID-19 During Lockdown: UK Study

Mental Health During Lockdowns

by Jack Phillips via The Epoch Times

Five times more children and young people committed suicide than died of COVID-19 during the first year of the pandemic in the United Kingdom, according to a study, which also concluded that lockdowns are more detrimental to children’s health than the virus itself.

Researchers with the University College London, the University of York, the University of Liverpool, and the University of Bristol found in a study PDF that has not yet been peer-reviewed that the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, otherwise known as the coronavirus, doesn’t appear to present a significant risk to children as compared with other age groups.

It was revealed in the study that only 25 children under the age of 18 died of COVID-19 from the start of the pandemic until the end of February 2021. Around 61 children in all died after testing positive, but in 36 cases it was found the virus “did not contribute to their death.”

But during the same time period, there were 124 suicides among children and 268 deaths from trauma, the study authors found, while noting the virus is “rarely fatal” for children.

Suicide is something that hasn't been tackled in Gibraltar for many years. I spoke to Joel Orme who is the Founder of pressure group ‘UGOOD GIB’. They strive to be at the forefront of the fight against suicide in Gibraltar by encouraging education of mental health issues and resources, providing practical advice to sufferers, uniting efforts to change behaviour in the community, and helping and holding organisations accountable to eradicate suicide from their environment and from the wider population.

With regards to engaging they will work with organisational and community leaders to engage in discussions around how best they and their teams can help eradicate suicide and promote positive discussions within Gibraltar. Lastly accountability where they will be holding organisations accountable when changing for the better, and helping them reach their final goal.

Do our leaders realise the full impact of lockdowns and other measures to contain this supposed ‘pandemic’? Or is this actually one of their aims? Do they want to inflict psychological harm on a whole generation while they are still at their most vulnerable?
