Company strategist Bill Lang from Small Business Australia told News Corp that the economic downturn was making an enormous impact, and this was exacerbated by the lack of certainty about the road out of COVID-19.
“I had six small business owner deaths in Melbourne reported to me in the first week of July,” he said.
Among the horror stories he had heard about were the suicides of neighbouring cafe owners on the Mornington Peninsula within seven days of each other.
