Fauci and Birx and Francis Collins and CDC and NIH lockdowns and school closures resulted in devastating rise in suspected suicide attempts among teenage girls (CDC reporting) (51% girls vs 4% boys)
by Paul Alexander
There was a 51% rise seen in girls versus a 4% rise among boys.
IMO beyond a signal or flag. This was obvious. We were getting reports of children across the US who committed suicide due to the lockdowns and school closures. Parents physically beating their children who themselves were laid off from work etc. Fauci and Birx and Francis Collins lockdowns killed people. Not the virus! We need to examine this data further and study this immediately to take corrective actions to never allow this to happen again and once again, our women, our girls alike minorities, face the brunt of pathology. The lap top ‘zoom’ class did not care. We need this data differentially collected by ethnicity too. By SES, all variables. We need more information and to study this surface writing.
‘After an initial drop in suicide-related emergency department visits at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are reporting that suspected teenage suicide attempts rose in 2021, with the increase driven by a dramatic uptick among teenage girls.
The CDC said in a report released Friday that there was a 51% rise in suspected suicide attempts among girls ages 12 to 17 from Feb. 21 to March 20, 2021, compared to the same time period in 2019 -- prior to the pandemic.
Among boys, there was a 4% rise in suspected suicide attempts over the same period when comparing this year to 2019.
Although Friday's CDC report did not speculate on why this might be the case, experts interviewed by ABC News said it could be due to gender differences in psychiatric manifestations, development and socialized behaviors. Psychiatrists say it's not clear yet why the pandemic seems to have hit women's mental health harder…’
"Adolescent females have been spending more time at home due to physical distancing and remote schooling allowing them to express mental health distress and talk more about suicidal thoughts and behaviors than ever before," said Dr. Christine Yu Moutier, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
Those going through puberty, a crucial time in youth, may be particularly vulnerable to the pandemic.
"Before puberty, the rate of depression and anxiety is the same for males and females, but after puberty it increases for females," said Dr. Yalda Safai, a psychiatrist in New York City and contributor to the ABC News Medical Unit. "All the risk factors for depression have been exaggerated by the pandemic."
