U.S. life insurance companies are beginning to see a huge rise in the number of non-COVID deaths due to the draconian lockdowns perpetrated in many states that prevented patients from getting timely medical treatments and screenings for diseases and ailments.
Industry executives are reporting that many people have died because they no longer had healthcare readily available because the lockdowns prevented them from seeing their doctors, and they expect higher than normal death rates to continue for the next few years as the effects continue to be felt, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The paper added:
“The losses we are seeing continue to be elevated over 2019 levels due at least in part, we believe, to the pandemic and the existence of either delayed or unavailable healthcare,” Globe Life finance chief Frank Svoboda told analysts and investors earlier this month.
Among the non-coronavirus-specific claims are deaths from heart and circulatory issues and neurological disorders, he said. “We anticipate that they’ll start to be less impactful over the course of 2022, but we do anticipate that we’ll still at least see some elevated levels throughout the year,” he said.
Primerica executives similarly cautioned in their fourth-quarter call about outsize numbers of non-Covid-19 deaths in 2022. “Some of these will be the result of delayed medical care or the increased incidence of societal-related issues, such as the increased prevalence of substance abuse,” Chief Financial Officer Alison Rand said in an email interview.
So, now we have more evidence that, not only did these idiotic lockdowns do NOTHING to stop the spread of the coronavirus, it also contributed to widespread deaths from a raft of other causes.
Democrats have blood on their hands.
