This in Canada alone. In Ontario a couple of weeks ago the leadership admitted direct result of the virus resulted in 35 people being dead that wouldn't have been with proper care in normal times. We can probably multiply that number as needed.

‘Sacrificed in the name of COVID patients’: Tens of thousands affected by surgery cancellations

Jim Mann recites the numbers without hesitation: he had 19 tests and seven meetings during a marathon week of screening at a Toronto hospital in March.

The reward at the end was nothing less than a new chance at life, a spot on the facility’s lung transplantation list as emphysema cuts his own lungs’ capacity by almost 75 per cent.

Then just days later, the University Health Network called to inform him everything was on hold. Mann knew he still had to wait for a matching organ from a deceased donor. But Ontario’s cancellation of “elective” surgeries to ready for a feared surge of COVID-19 patients meant nothing could be done for him until the restrictions were lifted.

“It’s very heartbreaking, to be honest,” says Mann, a retired home-renovation salesman from Niagara Falls. “It’s definitely worrisome. I’m only 65 years old.”

He’s part of an overlooked fall-out from the pandemic lockdown — the thousands of Canadians whose treatments have been delayed for close to two months already and could be postponed for weeks more.

Almost 200,000 surgeries and other procedures, cancer screening tests and clinical trials of experimental medicines were shelved indefinitely as hospitals braced for a possible flood of COVID-19 patients. A deluge that never quite materialized.

Meanwhile, many hospitals have sat barely half-full.

Doctors and patient advocates say the dramatic, overnight retooling of the nation’s health-care system, luckily, didn’t trigger a tsunami of deaths or other bad outcomes for non-COVID patients, thanks largely to careful planning.

But there is evidence of negative impacts nonetheless.

The Media and the NWO dictators ignore the enormous human cost on the other side of the COVID-19 equation and are only interested in pumping up the virus stats. In Arizona we just had a "spike" in virus deaths but that was a result of going back through death records over the last few weeks and reclassifying cause of death to COVID-19.

Canada's not the US, that transplant would have been considered necessary here. Currently the only surgeries that have been postponed in the US are elective surgeries.

There are a lot of things in the United States that are considered "elective" and have been cancelled, even though they are quite essential. Hip and knee replacements really help a lot of old timers with pain and mobility issues, colonoscopies and prostrate biopsies can detect serious conditions like cancer and get treated promptly.

Anything cancer related is not considered elective under the current guidelines, I know my wife is stage 4 and looking to get one mass on her leg cut out because it's irritating and annoying. The docs all said since it's cancer related it's "necessary". Hip and knee replacements are quality of life, not necessity of life surgeries therefore considered elective.

I really don't know how to get you guys to understand how this ENTIRE incident has beenn engineered to take down the population and while we slowly go back to the " NEW NORMAL" we will never go back to what we are as our nation before we can't.
The system and democrats have changed laaws in such ways half the dumb asses in this nation have no idea the impact this has had. & we will continue to lose more if these leftist can't come together as one.

Paid protesters ANTIFA BLM are sent out to stir up society and our issues they stir and stir and stir why is it you brain dead left can't pick up on that is beyond ALL OF US!! The end result the ole feds come ushering inn as the heroes......

THE UN IS THE CULPRIT ALONG WITH THE WHO. you have to follow those two in order to pick up on how this is playing...

WE WILLL NEVER RETURN TO NORMAL.. This is 911 invisible

1. Remember how they started with legal molesting at the Airports =. we accepted it

2. Remember how we use to never have 100 mile radius where it's legal for a US======( they use this on their own US PEOPLE) where it NOT constitutionally legal..
THE CONSTITUTION IN THE 100-MILE BORDER ZONE

The Problem
  • The Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects Americans from random and arbitrary stops and searches.
  • According to the government, however, these basic constitutional principles do not apply fully at our borders. For example, at border crossings (also called "ports of entry"), federal authorities do not need a warrant or even suspicion of wrongdoing to justify conducting what courts have called a "routine search," such as searching luggage or a vehicle.
  • Even in places far removed from the border, deep into the interior of the country, immigration officials enjoy broad—though not limitless—powers. Specifically, federal regulations give U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) authority to operate within 100 miles of any U.S. "external boundary."
  • In this 100-mile zone, Border Patrol agents have certain additional authorities. For instance, Border Patrol can operate immigration checkpoints.
  • Border Patrol, nevertheless, cannot pull anyone over without "reasonable suspicion" of an immigration violation or crime (reasonable suspicion is more than just a "hunch"). Similarly, Border Patrol cannot search vehicles in the 100-mile zone without a warrant or "probable cause" (a reasonable belief, based on the circumstances, that an immigration violation or crime has likely



This is just two examples...........
