I agree, people need to listen and take direction. Stay home letís not ruin the hard work everyone has done in all industry's. Now is not the time to be selfish and think you can do what you like.

Victorians are risking a second wave and while Iíve been against extended border closures, surely if Victorians canít get their act together, there could be a case for border restrictions for Victorians. It would be a shame for the rest of the nation to be restricted or infected because one state doesnít get their act together.
Some, not all of us. My eldest had to get a test & we all sat tight until the negative results came back but you're right, some selfish clowns walk amongst us. We all laughed at China Dans retort to SA when they threatened to keep us out, but who's having the last "laugh" now?

most victorians are doing the right thing and are annoyed at those who arenít. Iíd be happy if the borders remain closed with Victoria for an extra month or two (whatever is required) to allow the rest of the country to open up.

And then what? In two months time the same selfish morons still wonít follow rules and we will be no better off. A free country means there is little punishment to deter these gits who donít have as much to lose as you or I. You donít need to be a rocket scientist to work out what would happen to the same people in China if they protested against the rules...

i think the hope is that Victoria can achieve a similar result as NSW if restrictions are temporarily reimposed and new cases can be kept within the capabilities of the contact tracers

even travel to NSW from Victoria may now be restricted, I really can’t see QLD and the other states opening up to Victoria now

I find it odd that Dan Andrews has dodged answering the actual cause of the increase in community transmissions. No one has or is game to mention BLM protest in fear of any retribution because Dan Andrews didnít appose the protest. He would rather blame honest familyís having a catch up as the primary cause. 20 odd extra cases a day is more than a family bbq.

And yet he has the balls to stand in front of the media and question why anybody would want to travel to SA.

Shit, I dunno Dan? Maybe they want a holiday where the risk of catching COVID doesn't exist, or maybe they want to go visit a state who doesn't have a corrupt ****ing government.

Apparently not:

Victoria has reported 19 more coronavirus cases overnight, including clusters from a large family gathering that has spread across nine households.

One person who already had the virus has infected 11 family members after attending a family gathering in Keilor Downs in Melbourne's north-west.

In a separate case of family transmission, another member of a family in the northern suburb of Coburg has been confirmed to have the virus, bringing the number of infections in that family to 14 across multiple households.

"We have had lots of families, extended families, coming together and having lunch, dinner, other social gatherings, and people not staying home if they have got mild symptoms, and then spreading the virus to family members, who then take it to their workplace, take it to their school," Victoria's Minister for Health Jenny Mikakos told reporters on Sunday morning.

Well put a shout out to a journalist, I am sure they look at this site. If one of them actually tried to do their job do a little investigating and find real origin of the last 50 cases in the last few days in Victoria I bet there will be more than what Andrews would care to admit that attended a mass gathering a few weeks ago. Pi$$ weak of Andrews to blame family’s I think, he needs to provide proof it was otherwise. His position is almost untenable now needs to be gone!

A nice no evidence claim, typical of conspiracy theorists. So Dan made it up with no supporting evidence and the (Victorian) CMO & DCMO just went along with it?

Wouldn’t be the first time politicians BS on anything. Just imagine blaming any of the BLM protesters.....imagine the s$it storm that would create we are in an environment now where the majority can’t speak without being punished by the minority. The total breakdown of where the cases originated does not add up and Andrews will be responsible personally for this second wave and possibly any deaths that’s why they will cover as many as they can.

I am not conspiracy theorist but I can smell a rat from a mile away.
