With just two days to go before we come out of lockdown, a few hundred morons decided to protest in Melbourne yesterday. Many were not wearing masks, potentially causing an outbreak of the virus that could push us back into lockdown again. What is wrong with these people???? Even if you disagree with this lockdown, there’s only a couple of days to go, so what is the point of protesting now? There are too many stupid, selfish narcissists on planet earth.

Testing rates remain high here in Melbourne and asymptomatic residents living in the recent outbreak area in Melbourne’s north are being tested too.

Seven more cases were recorded in the past 24 hour period, four of them are in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. Our 14 day average has now reached the target of five. Mystery cases are still 10 but that number should fall over coming days.

The AFL Grand Final is on tonight in Brisbane, between my beloved Tigers, and Geelong. The COVID crowd limit is 30,000 and tickets sold out in 20 minutes. Queensland has been virtually free of COVID for some time.  GO TIGERS!
