ABSTRACT

Thousands of Preventable Gun Suicides: A Collateral COVID-19 Public Health Crisis   [open html - 0B]

From the Website: "The deep economic downturn caused by COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], combined with the millions of guns already in homes and the millions more being purchased during each month of the pandemic, is a volatile mix that could exacerbate the risk of firearm suicide. Based on historic precedent, the US risks a 20 to 30 percent increase in firearm suicides, costing the nation an additional 5,000 to 7,000 lives--about 20 more per day--in 2020 alone."
