COVID Lockdowns and Hysteria Have Caused Hundreds of Thousands of Extra TB Deaths

The [criminal reaction to the] Covid-19 pandemic has severely set back the fight against other global scourges like H.I.V., tuberculosis and malaria, according to a sobering new report released on Tuesday.

The report was compiled by the Global Fund, an advocacy group that funds campaigns against H.I.V., malaria and tuberculosis.

Before the arrival of the coronavirus, TB was the biggest infectious-disease killer worldwide, claiming more than one million lives each year. The pandemic has exacerbated the damage.

In 2020, about one million fewer people were tested and treated for TB, compared with 2019 — a drop of about 18 percent, according to the new report.

The number of people treated for drug-resistant TB declined by 19 percent, and for extensively drug-resistant TB by 37 percent. Nearly 500,000 people were diagnosed with drug-resistant TB in 2019.

“We’ve been hit really hard on TB,” said Peter Sands, executive director of the Global Fund. “I’m afraid that inevitably means hundreds of thousands of extra deaths.”

India, which has the highest TB burden in the world, had resumed its pre-Covid rate of TB diagnoses by late 2020, but the outbreak this past spring is likely to have reversed that progress, Mr. Sands said.

A drop in TB diagnoses can have far-reaching consequences for a community. One person with untreated TB can spread bacteria to as many as 15 people each year.

As many as 115 million people have been driven into extreme poverty because of Covid-19, further limiting their access to treatment and support. In some countries, school closures and lockdowns made it particularly difficult for adolescent girls and young women to receive health services.

Many of those were PCR tested positive and treated for covid,,, put on remdesivir, (another EUA killer), given the vaxx and sedated with a pipe shoved down their throat dying shortly after of kidney failure and/or lungs full of fluid and/or blown out from negligence. Hospitals and doctors making a killing,,, pun intended. People are sacrificed for the cause, the glorious never ending plandemic.

Much the same today except they don’t need to rob much from the other diseases,,,which is why the flu will make a miraculous comeback. Today the patients filling the hospitals are the vaxxed with adverse events. If these poor ‘vaxxed’ slobs have only one of the jabs OR if the jabs have been less the 14 days they are listed as unvaxxed covid delta breakthrough patients. Nice eh?

Listed as covid brings even more fed$bux to the ‘hospitals’ and ‘doctors’. Every vaxx given is a future covid cha ching! As most die alone little worries from the legal end. As the hospitals and doctors can call deaths whatever they want there is little chance of being caught. The bodies are then incinerated and since the CDC states no autopsies are to be done to covid patients all bases are covered. It’s all nice and legal like. The perfect democide. No messy machine gunning people into mass graves with all those witnesses to deal with later.

The nazis would be green with envy watching this shitshow. They would be really pissed as well being hung at Nuremberg for doing essentially the same.

It’s really something watching all the gullible hypochondriacs screaming for masks and vaxxes, both of which are very harmful to health. I imagine it was the same back ‘in the day’ watching people boarding trains on their way to the death camps. Of course these were mainly folks with no way of defending themselves. Today it’s a well armed people
that would be boarding those trains to death voluntarily! The Science!

The fact that the judicial, Executive and Legislative branches are not mandated to get the prick should be as obvious as when we were told protesting racism with BLM was perfectly fine. Hell, I am told even Pfizer isn’t mandating the vaxx. But we line up and do as we’re told like good little zombies.

per capita the nations with most Covid attributed deaths—Belgium, Czechia, Spain USA, UK, Italy—in gross numbers Brazil #2, India #3
many nations that did not impose covid martial law and have few vaccinated have many fewer deaths
the conclusion made by the idiots—6 vaccinations better than 2, 2 masks better than 1, social distancing 100 meters instead of 2, close all restaurants, bars, etc…amerikans don’t need the patriot act —they have fascist AMA and ACLU that want more covid fascism
