Armed and immune

Warren Kennedy (Letters, 30 September) writes that over 15,000 Australians would have lost their lives without the lockdowns. But he ignores the increased mortality that lockdowns cause that the Victorian medical specialists and registrars referred to.

If he could have read half my numerous unpublished letters, or the actual reasons given by the Victorian medical specialists who oppose the lockdowns, he would change his mind very quickly.

As CDC head, Robert Redfield, said, ‘We’re seeing, sadly, far greater suicides now than we are deaths from COVID ( July 27, 2020).

  1. Again this correspondent repeats yet another baseless rumour circulated widely in both the Murdoch media and right wing conspiracy theory websites. When COVID shutdowns commenced the rumours began circulating that they will cause an increase in suicide. Then months later, the follow up that have actually caused an increased in suicides. Fact checkers revealed nothing. Because there is nothing to reveal. No increase, no additional deaths or even no reported increase in the incidence of mental illnesses. And even if it were true the scale would need to be massive to exceed the proven deaths from COVID this year and the flu in previous years.

  2. 6 of 1 & a half-dozen of the other once again. Suppositions; no! The deaths
    are world-wide & that’s the way of it. Fact check on suicide; nothing. Murdoch
    is always ‘at it’ telling ScoMo via The Australian exactly what he wants the LNP
    to do.
