Spiros Vasilakis lost his mother to COVID-19 and then caught the virus himself

Melbourne resident Spiros Vasilakis says he deals with surges of anxiety every time he hears the daily COVID-19 case numbers.

He lost his mother to COVID-19 early on in the pandemic, in July 2020, when the virus infiltrated her nursing home.

In the weeks following, he also contracted COVID-19, along with his wife and sister.

They all now live with ongoing health impacts of the virus and the trauma of being impacted by COVID-19 on multiple levels.
