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.

Dear Prime Minister Morrison,
I write to you from Melbourne, the most locked down city in the world.
I was a health professional in the State of Victoria from 1982 till 2018.
The current Victorian government is now trashing human rights and freedom in ways that kill people.
As I understand it:
A. The teenage suicide rate has doubled.
B. Deaths from breast cancer have increased.
C. Grief stricken residents in Aged Care are stopping eating when they lose contact with loved ones and are then dying. This would be death by starvation in modern Australia.
I know of numerous doctors who are deeply concerned that many other ways of dying from lockdowns will emerge in the future.
Now is the time to start preventing those deaths instead of ignoring them.
There is one simple question that needs to be addressed.
I call upon you, Mr Morrison, to use all the power and influence of your office to address it:
HOW MANY PEOPLE DO LOCKDOWNS KILL?

On the date that Charles Dickens died, I assert that people need freedom.
In this age of darkness, when millions of people are losing their freedoms, some of them will die from the despair.
To paraphrase Pip from Dickens’ classic novel Great Expectations: “how strange it (is) that (we) should be encompassed by all this taint of prison ……”
These coronavirus lockdowns seem downright murderous to me.
