So he is not happy about the lockdown of his shire? But he also observed there were many cars coming his way?

What did Cr Hearn think was going to happen?


Remember this from last month?

^^ Separate incidents.


My query would be, Are the sex-workers also Guards, or are the Guards also sex-workers?


Confusing for us non-Vics

No doubt they had the other 12 up on stage with them..

I won't submit to wearing a mask, but if their so effective let's all wear masks and open up the country again.

3hr travel time to Philip Island:

Hope those who've rushed to their holiday homes are not infected. They must not have registered the Premier's words.

Hotham and Falls shut.

The cases will rise for a while yet, that is to be expected. Hopefully we will see a decline in a few weeks after locking **** down again.

Unfortunately I'm thinking there will be a huge spike in deaths in the US in a couple of weeks considering they are reaching capacity in a lot of areas. This is why we are trying to catch it before we get overwhelmed.

Do you reckon it's a complacency sort of thing, people not thinking they are effective, or is it a supply issue?

If you end up with supply issues over there let us know what and we'll each pick-a-Vic to keep supplied with what you can't get.

And chin up Vic dudes - at least you are safer now they made that Torana guy give back his WEPN plates. Phew!

Well I think the mask issue in Australia is because we were told not to go buy them up so that the health workers are left short not necessarily because we don't want to wear them. Apart from what is happening now in Vic there really hasn't been a strong case for it.

We flattened the curve without them since we haven't had much community transmission and that is what is different about what is happening now.

Sure if I had to I would but you would also have to tell me where I can buy them

Some c'cksmack back from Vic is on the loose in Tasmania apparently.

Supposed to be in forced quarantine but Police can't find him.

Have his rego too at least.

I mean seriously. If this clown is positive could be devestating.

They've said Victorians should consider wearing masks in public, might get my hipster on and bring back this ol' chestnut:

Same for Polio. It has a higher mutation rate than Influenza, but a lower rate of antigenic shift. What is mutating is more important than how often.
