Deaths of Illnes

Thousands of people lost their physical and mental health as a result of detention, arrest and suspension decisions, isolation from society, and social genocide during the deprivation process. The most painful casualties were those of the sick prisoners and their families. Those who became seriously ill in prison were not treated. Treatment of diseases such as cancer and Corona and evacuations were delayed. People were literally doomed to death and disease.
