Daniel Michael Andrews, your government has made Melbourne the most locked down city in the world.
You act as if you do that for safety but you focus too much on Covid statistics and ignore other causes of death. I was a health professional in your state for a quarter of a century.
So I ask you: how many people have your lockdowns killed?
How many old people have died of grief in nursing homes when lockdowns have cut off their social contacts?
What has happened to the suicide rate during your 6th lockdown? Especially the teenage suicide rate.
What has happened to the breast cancer death rate ? And death rates from other cancers and other diseases?
In the UK 70,000 more people have died at home since the pandemic.
Have more people died at home during your lockdowns? How many of those deaths were preventable? Did they get adequate pain relief?
Daniel Andrews, the people have a right to know.
