The Victorian Coroner released figures demonstrating that suicides didn't not go up at all.

Look yes, lockdown sucks.

You know what sucks more?

COVID.

Last week I was reading a report for the federal government with stats showing that suicides were not higher than the previous year across Vic, NSW or Queensland. Also stats on mental health services used, which rose extraordinarily across all states - so no one is saying this time hasn’t taken a huge toll, and a lot of us would be among those numbers using services to help us cope. The fact that it was true across all states though reinforces that lockdowns are only part of why living through a global pandemic is hard. It has been and again is a challenge living in Melbourne. Rather be here dealing with our challenges than those experienced by India, Spain, Italy, Taiwan, Brazil, the UK, the US and many other places - we will live through ours.

No COVID famously only affects Australia, you're not allowed to make international comparisons.

There are Clowns that Barrack for Political Parties that post on this Forum. Sadly some of them are so one eyed they can’t see the sh*t Sandwich being fed to them. Clokey keeps on telling me they’ll “Soon Get It”. I’m not so sure. :stern look
Z Man, I'm not a fan of either political party, also not a fan of lockdown either.

But there is no one size fits all solution where everyone is every happy and healthy.

Everyone has valid reasons to be upset about restrictions whether they are too strong or too weak.....but to categorise everyone into two categories (way too much of that happening in the world at the mo) is way off the mark.

you cant seriously suggest that we let the infections get to levels experienced on other comparable western countries? Father inlaw moved back to UK a couple of years ago and brother inlaw works for NHS in UK. i have first hand account that it was not nice at all and they would take our scenario without battering an eyelid. not saying everything has been perfect, far from it but hard action early has proven to be quite effective.

if only we could take a leaf out of the UKs vaccine rollout.

So out of over 5000 primary close contacts, we’re sitting at roughly 100 infections.

Absolute beast....

" C.H.O. Sutton, people are reporting that their cats have run away and been found outside the 25km limit. What have you to say to this long suffering cohort who now have expired cat-food and are not being compensated " ?

No. You're making that up. Surely?
