Alan Jones destroyed Australia’s response to the coronavirus crisis when he returned to the broadcast after withdrawing from the radio.
The 79-year-old debuted Monday night with his new program on Sky News, claiming that Australia has conducted an ‘alarming’ campaign over COVID-19.
“Since I was last on the air and even before I went off the air, we’ve been through this extraordinary alarming campaign about the coronavirus and it’s going to continue,” said Jones.
“People understandably feel like they are catching the virus, what comes next is a bag of nails, a few wooden planks and you might as well climb into the box.”

More than 8,400 people have been diagnosed with coronavirus in Australia with 106 fatalities, which Jones argued pales in comparison to the annual average of 160,000 deaths.
He noted figures from the World Health Organization that 99 percent of the world’s coronavirus cases are mild and wondered why the disease has closed the country.
“We are told breathless how many more people have tested positive. Now this hysteria has grabbed people, ”he said.
“They’re on the rise.”
Jones said if Victoria was “a public company, it would be in administration.”

The experienced broadcaster claimed that “almost none” of the new cases were critical, despite the fact that an emergency hospital was set up in Melbourne Showgrounds to accommodate a dreaded spike in cases of nine of the city’s commission’s closed towers.

Jones said leaders should start “leading” rather than scaring the public into feeding hysteria around the virus.
“Can we have a perspective in all this? The economy has been crushed. What for? ” Jones said.
“We have political leaders who have become followers. Chief medical officers whose names have never appeared on a ballot paper lead the country.
‘For God’s sake, companies are going bankrupt and people may have lost their jobs forever because the impression has been created that if you test positive, you have to go straight to Bunnings, get a box of nails, build some pine planks, and jump in. ‘
Jones’ return to the air received mixed reviews on social media.
‘Disgusting! So what happened to “doctor’s prescription” that you had to retire? reads a tweet.
“How do I block the words ‘Alan Jones’ from my Twitter feed?” read another message.
A supporter wrote, “Brilliant! Welcome back Alan. ‘
