Bureaucratic agenda: preventing some deaths are more important than preventing other deaths ?

Recently I made this post  Could better chronic pain management – prevent thousands of OD’s (suicides) EACH YEAR ?     It is well known – or should be – that under/untreated pain can cause complications to a pt’s comorbidity issues resulting in premature deaths and/or suicides.  But I am not aware of any statistics that are tracked on these issues.  Complications of comorbidity issues just adds demands on our healthcare systems that could otherwise be avoided.  How often do we see much about chronic pain pts committing suicide because of under/untreated pain ?  Here is a recently court case – and the first one that I have seen$7 million awarded to family of man who killed himself after pain medication denied

Could it be that a certain part of our bureaucracy has an agenda that having those  deaths prevented would be counter productive to THEIR AGENDA but PUSHING VACCINATIONS and coming up with a hypothetical deaths that could have been prevented because more people got vaccinated sooner – IS JUST ANOTHER/DIFFERENT BUREAUCRATIC AGENDA ?

Vaccination could have prevented 90,000 deaths over four months, study says

Approximately 90,000 covid-19 deaths could have been avoided over four months of this year if more U.S. adults had chosen to be vaccinated, according to a study published Wednesday, as the disease caused by the coronavirus became the second-leading cause of death in the United States.

The estimate by researchers backed by the Peterson Center on Healthcare and the Kaiser Family Foundation focused on deaths of U.S. adults from June 2021 — when the report says coronavirus vaccines became widely available to the general public — through September.

But around half of those preventable deaths occurred in September because of the spread of the more contagious delta variant, easing of social distancing rules, and the lower vaccination rate among younger adults, according to the study.

In September, covid-19 was the leading cause of death for adults ages 35 to 54, while it was the second-most common reason for mortality among the larger population, even when including data for children under 15, the study showed.

“The overwhelming majority of covid-19 hospitalizations and deaths continue to be preventable,” the authors said.

During the January-February period, the worst days of the pandemic so far in terms of the number of fatalities, covid-19 was the most common cause of death for Americans, the study showed, surpassing the usual culprit — heart disease — during that period.

Deaths and hospitalizations are declining in the United States, according to The Washington Post covid-19 tracker. New daily cases had decreased by 12 percent in the past week, while deaths had declined by 7 percent.

But the pace of vaccination appears to have plateaued since June, according to data compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with the number of daily doses administered in the country hovering under 1 million since then. More than 3 million doses were being administered daily from late March to early April.

Around 188 million Americans are fully vaccinated as of late Wednesday, according to the CDC, or about 57 percent of the population.

  1. I wonder how many deaths could’ve been prevented by Dr,s prescribing Ivermectin, and hydroxychloroquine. ??? We’ll never know the deaths, suffering and misery caused by just pushing the vax and not putting the patient first. All about the money!

  2. Government USED to freely admit, across the board, even recently, that THEY SUCK AT HEALTH CARE ISSUES…
