Controlled studies ease worries of widespread long Covid in kids – STAT

These studies indicate that long Covid in children is rare and, when it does occur, is short-lived. In one study, 97% of children ages 5 to 11 with Covid-19 recovered completely within four weeks. In the small group that had bothersome symptoms after four weeks (usually loss of smell or fatigue), most had fully recovered by eight weeks.


Even the BBC is starting to admit the lockdown is causing deaths

BBC: Coronavirus: Deaths at 20-year high but peak may be over


  • “A third [of deaths in the week up to 10 April] were linked to coronavirus, but deaths from other causes also increased, suggesting the lockdown may be having an indirect impact on health.”
  • “On Tuesday [21 April] 823 new deaths were announced, but most of these happened in the previous days and weeks. Some even date back to March.”
  • “But the ONS also said deaths from other causes rose too.”
  • “The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia…is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.”
