The Non-Covid Casualties of the Covid Crisis — Part III

It is not just COVID-19 itself that is causing hardship. The lockdown and the general atmosphere of panic surrounding COVID-19 have had devastating consequences:

  • Tens of millions of people have lost their jobs
  • Many businesses have gone under
  • People will lose their homes
  • Stress and anxiety are taking their toll
  • Suicides and abuse are going up
  • Hospitals and other healthcare providers are suspending “elective care” and reducing hours and laying off staff
  • Patients in need of medical care are afraid to go to the hospital
  • A worldwide economic crisis means devastation for people in poor countries

This is the third part in this series about the non-Covid casualties of the COVID-19 crisis. Part I can be found here, part II here, and part IV here.
