The VicGov Dept Health has translated Covid-19 material into 54 other languages, and the Vic Coronavirus hotline has translators standing by.

What more do you want?



Only realised recently that l have seen or heard nothing on commercial t.v. or radio.
Would have thought that was a given.

Oh yeah sorry, I forgot Dan and his cronies have handled this perfectly!
Given the per capita COVID-19 death rate in NSW is, at least, double the per capita death rate in Victoria, I can imagine you must be giving Gladys a piece of your mind even more because you’d be a fair-minded chappy, I suspect.

Don't really care what happens in NSW to be honest. Care about how pathetic our Premier is, but of course you being a fair minded chappy would no doubt think he has done wonderfully and there is no issues.

True. I can’t argue with that assessment. I reckon he’s done an excellent job, all things considered . Having said that, I think the other premiers have done an excellent job as well. I do care what happens everywhere, to be honest. Otherwise, I’ll never get to see my extended family again, which I do care about too.

Here's why these postcode lockdowns won't work:

Just spoke to a mate. He lives in 1 of the 10 postcodes. He also has a currently empty rental property in another suburb/postcode. Guess what he's doing for the next 4 weeks!?

Yes, we are looking good in comparison to the vast majority, SDS. However, there’s no doubt that things can change drastically very quickly on that front, Monday’s hero can be Tuesday’s chump with this virus.

As long as he’s in the vast minority, it should be OK. There’s always going to be outliers. If the general population pull their collective heads in, it should slow things down, hopefully. It’s always going to be there to some degree, at least until the vaccine- even after that too, maybe.

I do agree with this in general, but it's all still a little too grey for me. I know of a suburb that has had 3 schools closed and yet that suburb isn't on this postcode list.
