From the Daily Mail (because local media won’t dare touch it)
From the article:
‘I am looking forward to a future working high above Covid which is “apparently” “ravaging” Sydney.’
But the July 15 message of thanks to his mate, complete with a picture of a bearded Brummer nestled among the city’s skyscrapers, would tragically be his last.
Just two days later, on July 17, the NSW Government paused all construction in greater Sydney for two weeks, in a desperate – and failed – bid to arrest a surge in cases of the Indian Delta variant.
The lockdown was a devastating blow for Brummer, who took his own life at his parent’s Glenhaven home, in the city’s north west, on Saturday, just one week after the restrictions were announced.
‘He was really excited and really grateful about the job,’ his grieving employer, who has known Brummer for two decades, told Daily Mail Australia.
I was told today that my bubbly 9 year old niece is depressed. Living in Wollongong who are under similar restrictions as Sydney despite zero community infections she is unable to go to school, go to dance classes, visit friends and is currently not getting out of bed.
Closer to home we have made a decision to close our gym, losing over half the members since the first lockdown. Who would of thought people like training in a mask?
But these tragedies are not counted in the daily figures and the cumulative effect of the lockdowns for millions of people and businesses would be unmeasurable not that anyone who matters would care to try.
