Beth Palmer, 17
In a healthy society, women who consider taking their own lives would be unable to do so.
Because they’d be living in a cage under tight surveillance and have no access to pills or sharp objects.
But we don’t live in a healthy society. In fact, we don’t even live in a society anymore.
We live in an environment that, for weeks now, has been bombarding people with “news” about a supposedly deadly virus that is going to kill everyone unless people never leave their homes ever again for things other than going to the supermarket.
The fact that the more we learn about this virus, the clearer it is that it is pretty much just the flu, is not stopping this psychological siege.
People are still being forced to live like prisoners, and no government official is being honest about when the whole thing will end.
Beth Palmer would have never died of the coronavirus.
The cure killed her.
The family of a talented young singer with ‘the world at her ‘feet,’ say she took her life because three months of coronavirus lockdown to her ‘felt like 300 years’.
Beth Palmer, 17, from Sale in Greater Manchester, was studying to be a vocal artist and had a growing reputation as a talented singer, but her family say she became obsessed that the current clampdown on everyday life would never end.
The student was found dead at her home, just days after the country was put into lockdown because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Her devastated family say there was no indication she was struggling with her mental health, other than that she’d expressed sadness and frustration about not being able to see friends or go to college.
And they spoke about the tragedy to warn other parents that their children will face dark days during these uncertain times.
Bath’s father Mike Palmer said: ‘I have no doubt the lockdown has played a major part in Beth’s death.
‘She couldn’t finish college, she couldn’t go out and see her friends. She felt as though this three-month lockdown was to her 300 years.
‘This three-month lockdown I think became an extreme, almost obsessive obsession, that it was never going to end.’
The fact that governments keep extending it without giving a clear date out of it doesn’t help prevent more cases like this.
Also, the fact that most “experts” featured in the media recommend extending it for years until a vaccine is ready doesn’t help either.
Beth was a student at Access Creative College in Manchester and was gaining a reputation as a talented singer and musician, regularly performing at local pubs.
Mike and Beth’s mother Helen are struggling to come to terms with the tragedy that took place at the end of March as the country lived through its first week of lockdown.
Speaking to ITV’s Granada Reports they said they feared there will be other teenagers and young people struggling with the imposed isolation and change to their lives.
‘The devastation is indescribable. It saddens me to say but I don’t think she’ll be alone, I think there’ll be other young adults, teenagers feeling exactly the same, feeling very vulnerable, maybe very scared about the Covid-19 situation, having their lives changed,’ said Mike.
‘I’d hate to think of another family going through what we’re going through now.
‘Even if it puts one child off taking their own life, hopefully no-one should feel isolated enough to do this.’
There’s been others who killed themselves because of the lockdown, according to their families.
And there will be many more.
It is sad, because these wombs could have been producing babies a few years from now in the breeding camps, when the rape gangs start raping.
