“Far more Japanese people are dying of suicide, likely exacerbated by the economic and social repercussions of the pandemic, than of the COVID-19 disease itself. While Japan has managed its coronavirus epidemic far better than many nations, keeping deaths below 2,000 nationwide, provisional statistics from the National Police Agency show suicides surged to 2,153 in October alone, marking the fourth straight month of increase.
To date, more than 17,000 people have taken their own lives this year in Japan. October self-inflicted deaths were up 600 years on year, with female suicides, about a third of the total, surging over 80%,” CBS reported.
“Japan has managed its coronavirus pandemic far better than many Western nations, keeping deaths below 2,000 nationwide in the last 10 months. However, according to provisional statistics from the National Police Agency, suicides claimed the lives of 2,153 citizens in the month of October alone, marking the fourth straight month of increase.
“We need to seriously confront reality,” chief government spokesman Katsunobu Kato stated this week, announcing increased efforts to counsel potential victims via suicide hotlines and social media outlets,” Asian Dawn writes.
This is precisely what President Trump has been warning of and what the Biden team will exasperate. America needs to stop these foolish lockdowns and let businesses open, schools resume, permit people to assemble using common sense, and to allow Americans to be free from unexamined and draconian laws; there will be less suicide when this occurs.
Biden has threatened national mandatory mask-wearing laws and lock-up restrictions that will increase solitariness, loneliness, and ultimately more suicides. The deaths will ensure naturally from his designs.
