President Trump warned that the number of suicides could increase if he does not lift restrictions due to the coronavirus on daily life.

His administration is mulling whether to lift social distancing measures at the end of a 15-day period, and he has repeatedly said that the “cure should not be worse than the problem.”

The article goes on to state the following:

At his regular coronavirus briefing on Monday evening, he spelled out his dilemma to reporters: “You have tremendous responsibility. We have jobs. We have … people get tremendous anxiety and depression, and you have suicides over things like this when you have terrible economies. You have death probably in far greater numbers than the numbers we are talking about with regard to the virus.

Trump said leaders have “a double obligation.”

On Sunday, Dennis Michael Lynch (DML), founder of DML News App and TeamDML.com, expressed similar concerns.

Referencing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press conference, DML said that businesses closing and finances being dire would cause a problem beyond just economic — it could cause a spike in suicides.

“The mental toll that this is taking on the country… there’s not a line item on the spreadsheet for that,” DML said.

Commenting on Cuomo’s instructions to residents, DML said, “He tells people ‘start making a plan for you being emotionally distraught. Start making a plan for your finances to be tougher.’

“People are going to start taking their lives,” DML said in exasperation.

DML’s remarks about the “mental aspect” of the coronavirus response begin at minute mark 20:56. Watch here or at the link below.
