The Morgues are overflowing with dead young people, but why?
According to the National Library of Medicine the "typical" fentanyl overdose victim was 32.5 +/- 6.7 years of age (range, 19 to 57 years), male (78%, compared with 22% female), and Caucasian (50%, compared with 29% Hispanic, 20% Black, and 0.9% Asian)
In some areas the deaths are skyrocketing, such is the case in King County. The office of the medical examiner in King County is being inundated with people who have overdosed on fentanyl.
"As the number of deaths caused by fentanyl continues to rise, the Medical Examiner's Office is now facing the challenge of determining where to store the growing number of bodies. It is obvious the coolers they use have a limited capacity, but capacity is consistently being exceeded despite the fact it has not been increased "According to KTTH, Seattle-King County Public Health Director Dr. Faisal Khan made the following statement last week.
Khan, who delivered his remarks during a meeting of the Board of Health, stated deaths caused by fentanyl have wreaked havoc on the city of Seattle and have developed into an increasingly severe epidemic over the course of the past few years.
After, he went on to say he believes the ultimate fentanyl death toll in the city will be approximately twice as high as it was three years ago.
"In the coming weeks, when the final review of fatal overdoses will be completed, I fear the year 2022 will set another heartbreaking record for the number of fatal overdoses occurred in King County. When compared to just three years ago, the number of lives will be lost due to this in 2019 will more than double."
The facts are, when our census count gets high, we have options for temporary morgue surge capacity, including storing decedents on autopsy gurneys and partnering with funeral homes, according to a spokesperson for public health. "We have options for temporary morgue surge capacity," "We are looking into options have a longer time frame for adding more capacity."
Why these deaths? No doubt there are mental illness issues, but the vast majority of the fentanyl deaths seem unrelated to mental disorders but something else is going on.
Look at it this way. The deaths are at an all-time tragic level but those who don’t die are mentally and physically impaired, but they are not being counted! Permanent damage is being done to our young people who survive, but what is being done about it?
Some people claim this is the result of easy access to this horrible drug, but this doesn’t explain why so many want to take the killer drug in the first place.
In comparative it’s easy to say: Guns kill people, but everyone secretly knows it is the person who pulled the trigger who does the killing.
Tobacco kills people, but everybody knows it’s the person using tobacco is killing themselves.
Cars kill people, but many secretly know it’s the drunk drinker or the reckless driver who kills people.
In the same way many claim it’s the fentanyl which kills people, but secretly they know it’s the person who takes a killer drug who killed themselves.
But why are people knowingly using killer drugs? It’s not just the easy supply of the killer drug but the person chooses to use the killer drug, but why are people killing themselves?
Are you willing to give your opinion?
…. then maybe this subject is just to harsh to deal with so you’ll quietly sit on the sidelines while our young people choose death over life.
Shall we find out?
Your opinion please!
