Why Can’t Other Australian States Follow The New South Wales Method Of Handling The Coronavirus Outbreak?


Victoria is handling the latest coronavirus outbreak like it’s the end of the world…

We never thought we would be talking about the coronavirus again, but here we are. We cannot get our heads around why people in Victoria are suddenly complaining about having to go on lockdown again as per Pedestrian TV. While we understand WHY the Victorian government is doing it, it is unnecessary. Look at how New South Wales is handling it. We haven’t had our border to the state shutdown.

If we have half a dozen cases, our government doesn’t order a lockdown. They get on top of it thanks to the QR Codes that are in place. The only time a shutdown is ordered is if the situation is out of control. We’re a resilient state who refuses to let a few cases of COVID get the better of our way of life.

2020 was like living a never-ending hell for the entire world with millions of people infected with the deadly worldwide bug. Just as many people have died from it and still are. Look at the dire situation in India right now, as seen on the ABC.

If Victoria and the other states had followed New South Wales’ way of handling the outbreak than people wouldn’t be complaining. Look at what happened over in Western Australia last year. They locked down their borders to everyone last year for a vast majority of it.

We’re just hoping that there’s not another #ToiletPaperGate type of situation involved. That would not only suck, but it would show how self-interested people are. Sure, there are people who do the right thing and share their supplies with elderly neighbours, friends, and relatives and those who can’t afford it. But whatever happened to the compassion people displayed during the bushfires in late 2019-early 2020? Was that just a fluke?
