The Wuhan virus has been a complete disaster for countries around the world.
The fallout from the pandemic is still spreading because of pro-lockdown politicians.
And the coronavirus is causing one health emergency nobody saw coming.
The Wuhan virus has killed approximately 160,000, but the full extent of the outbreak has yet to be realized.
Over 40 million Americans are out of work and thousands of businesses are collapsing, yet the Democrats are determined to keep the country locked down for seemingly as long as possible.
Meanwhile, deaths of despair are skyrocketing, and many treatable conditions are being exacerbated because patients are being discouraged from going to the doctor or hospital.
Even Dr. Anthony Fauci said in May that locking down indefinitely would be a recipe for disaster.
Now the repercussions of over four months of lockdowns is beginning to show.
Other deadly illnesses are starting to make a comeback.
The laser focus on COVID-19 has allowed a more deadly airborne pathogen to rise as a threat: tuberculosis (TB).
According to the World Health Organization, roughly 10 million people are infected by TB each year and 1.5 million die.
Thus far the Wuhan virus has killed just over 700,000, so it likely will not reach TB’s annual death toll.
From the New York Times:
“Until this year, TB and its deadly allies, H.I.V. and malaria, were on the run. The toll from each disease over the previous decade was at its nadir in 2018, the last year for which data are available.
Yet now, as the coronavirus pandemic spreads around the world, consuming global health resources, these perennially neglected adversaries are making a comeback.”
Doctors at clinics around the world are deeply concerned because testing for these deadly viruses simply isn’t happening.
Dr. Lucica Ditiu of the Stop TB Partnership said, “The more you leave undiagnosed and untreated, the more you will have next year and the year after…It took a lot of work to arrive where we are. We were not at the peak of the mountain, but we were away from the base. But then an avalanche came and pushed us back to the bottom.”
TB had already been making a comeback in American cities due to the homelessness crisis, and the lockdowns are undoubtedly making it worse.
Unfortunately, the hysteria over the coronavirus has led to terrible policy in the United States.
Democrats and their media allies are determined to worsen the coronavirus panic as much as possible so they can seize more power and use fear to get Joe Biden elected.
That’s why pro-lockdown protests have been demonized, but left-wing protests have been allowed to continue uninterrupted.
The country has reached the point where the “cure” might actually be worse than the disease.
