I was more talking about the fact they are saying people are leaving the Health Care industry due to burn out and not returning in Oklahoma. We DO NOT need that right now!

From the actual manuscript:

Finally, estimates of excess deaths attributed to COVID-19 might underestimate the actual number directly attributable to COVID-19, because deaths from other causes might represent misclassified COVID-19–related deaths or deaths indirectly caused by the pandemic. Specifically, deaths from circulatory diseases, Alzheimer disease and dementia, and respiratory diseases have increased in 2020 relative to past years (7), and it is unclear to what extent these represent misclassified COVID-19 deaths or deaths indirectly related to the pandemic (e.g., because of disruptions in health care access or utilization).

Deaths due to "lockdown" would be indirectly attributable to COVID-19 and therefore COVID-19-related deaths. Someone clearly can't read the article and is reading into it what he wants to see. Patients with circulatory diseases, Alzheimer disease and dementia, and respiratory diseases had these before Feb 1. They did not develop them after Feb 1.

HOLY CRAP....maybe this had something to do with the lock down in the UK ???

Ambulance service said in Manchester alone they were on the phone with 127 people dialing 999 (UK version of 911) and had 295 calls waiting on HOLD while they were dealing with those

They have canceled all breaks for all operators in order to try to handle the calls

Coming to a city near you if we lock down again.
