Alarmism and political ass covering is about the only thing that has gone viral in this pandemic, by Justinian the Great.
Justinian and his clan live in a regional city of about 100,000 people just over an hour out of Melbourne. The town has had just 10 COVID-19 cases, no fatalities, and has not had a new case for three weeks. It would be fair to say that his home town is COVID free or at the very least is extremely low risk.
Despite this fact the town remains in lockdown and economically suppressed, sacrificed seemingly in an act of sympathy to other areas more affected (wherever they may be as they are increasingly hard to find). The absurdity of Dan Andrew’s response to the pandemic (which includes banning such dangerous activities as golf, fishing, sitting on a park bench, swimming at the beach, sitting in your car, and so on) is becoming more obvious by the day.
