Thanks for sharing. I suspect heart attacks and strokes are down as the stress and activity level reduced while sheltering in place. I saw an interesting statistic of an increase in ankle fractures as people are drinking alcohol more at home and then tripping and falling. I also saw a scary statistic demonstrating an increase in ruptured appendicitis and complex cholecystitis. This likely reflects the postponing of "elective" surgery. An unintended consequence any surgeon could have predicted.

My biggest concern now is the mental health effects on healthcare workers.
