As my readers know the mass psychological experiment has not applied to:

With some 2.6 billion people around the world in some kind of lockdown, we are conducting arguably the largest psychological experiment ever;
"This will result in a secondary epidemic of burnouts and stress-related absenteeism in the latter half of 2020;
Currently, an estimated 2.6 billion people – one-third of the world’s population – is living under some kind of lockdown or quarantine. This is arguably the largest psychological experiment ever conducted.
In short, and perhaps unsurprisingly, people who are quarantined are very likely to develop a wide range of symptoms of psychological stress and disorder, including low mood, insomnia, stress, anxiety, anger, irritability, emotional exhaustion, depression and post-traumatic stress symptoms. Low mood and irritability specifically stand out as being very common, the study notes.
In China, these expected mental health effects are already being reported in the first research papers about the lockdown.
In cases where parents were quarantined with children, the mental health toll became even steeper. In one study, no less than 28% of quarantined parents warranted a diagnosis of “trauma-related mental health disorder”.
Among quarantined hospital staff, almost 10% reported “high depressive symptoms” up to three years after being quarantined. Another study reporting on the long-term effects of SARS quarantine among healthcare workers found a long-term risk for alcohol abuse, self-medication and long-lasting “avoidance” behaviour. This means that years after being quarantined, some hospital workers still avoid being in close contact with patients by simply not showing up for work.
Reasons for stress abound in lockdown: there is risk of infection, fear of becoming sick or of losing loved ones, as well as the prospect of financial hardship. All these, and many more, are present in this current pandemic."
"In our most recent survey after two weeks of lockdown, the green portion has shrunk to 25% of the population. The “red” part of the population has increased by 10 percentage points to fully 25% of the population.And we're in the eighth week of lock down here. Justin Trudeau and Doug Ford excluded.
"These are the people at high risk for long-term absenteeism from work due to illness and burnout. Even if they stay at work, research from Eurofound reports a loss of productivity of 35% for these workers.It's doubtful this is a surprise. And much more likely it is desired. It's long been known that trauma has repercussions. So trauma on a global scale will have mass repercussions.
In general, we know at-risk groups for long-term mental health issues will be the healthcare workers who are on the frontline, young people under 30 and children, the elderly and those in precarious situations, for example, owing to mental illness, disability and poverty.
All this should surprise no one; insights on the long-term damage of disasters have been accepted in the field of trauma psychology for decades."
“There’s a real recognition that the mental health impacts are going to be severe,” said Margaret Eaton.
That Ontario survey also found 42 per cent of Ontario adults reported increasing their use of substances or gambling since the pandemic began.
Given the country was already facing an opioid epidemic before the pandemic, Eaton said, that finding is “a big concern” and that there are resources for people trying to understand if their substance use has become a problem.
The media, alt and main stream, should be ashamed of their heavy handed fear mongering and their role in terrorizing the populace- That these issues would presents themselves was knowable. Foreseeable. Isolation is a huge issue. Joblessness. Family distress. Financial issues. Drug and alchohol use on the rise.
Handling this situation in a different manner, which could have been done and should have been done would have minimized this impending tsunami of harm and destruction.
'Cause let's face the reality the lock downs did nothing to make the elderly or vulnerable safer.
