I think the reality is going to be quite complex but it’s something we do need to be aware of and actually try and understand.

There is despair from your livelihood disappearing up the swanny.

It doesn’t have to lead to suicide, chronic stress can lead to all sorts of problems.

Dr Charles Levinson, DoctorCall

The reasons behind these horrific numbers are complicated and none of us fully understand them, so that is exactly why there should be an urgent and comprehensive Government inquiry.

If anything, the situation seems to be worsening.

Considering the relentless focus on one virus for more than two years,

requesting answers from Government on thousands and thousands of non-Covid excess deaths is entirely reasonable.
