Thousands of cancer patients could die early due to coronavirus delays, study finds

The responses to Covid will be deemed a complete failure in at least one respect – the total lack of consideration of secondary impact of the lockdown. I rarely heard health pundits who advocated lockdown discuss thr secondary and tertiary costs. Long after it was clear hospital capacity wouldn’t be overwhelmed the public health experts continued to advocate lockdown (and still do so to this day). Between the economic effects and non-covid health impacts we will be suffering from the Covid response for years to come.
