Daniel Andrews is pressured to expose or fine someone who intentionally exposes others to coronavirus
Daniel Andrews has been urged to imprison or fine anyone who intentionally exposes other people to coronavirus.
The Victorian prime minister is under increasing pressure from the opposition to break the rules as the state struggles with a second COVID-19 outbreak.
Victorians living in metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire are currently in the midst of a second enclosure in an effort to stem the spread of the virus.
Anyone caught breaking home orders will be fined $ 1,652.
But shadow attorney general Edward O’Donohue said that more needs to be done to be a legitimate deterrent to potential wrongdoers, Herald Sun. reported.
Metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell County have been closed following the increase in COVID-19 cases through community broadcasts. Shadow attorney general Edward O’Donohue said the government should impose fines and lock lockdown rules
“In a time when Victoria is being re-imprisoned for Daniel Andrews’ incompetent mismanagement by the COVID-19 crisis, every step must be taken to protect the community,” said O’Donohue.
Daniel Andrews must now take urgent action to introduce severe new penalties, including significant prison terms and significant fines. The risk resulting from this shocking behavior requires nothing less. ‘
Deliberately spreading or attempting to spread the coronavirus is already considered an offense in every state and territory in Australia.
However, Mr O’Donohue believed that sanctions in Victoria should be stricter and often imposed, especially given the current circumstances.
There are past examples in Victoria of people trying to spit on health workers or police or leaving their homes while waiting for the results of a COVID-19 test.

He wants to send as strong a message as possible that breaking isolation orders or deliberately trying to spread the virus will not be tolerated.
“Daniel Andrews has neglected to introduce heavy new sanctions as part of the COVID-19 legislation, which was rushed by parliament this April,” said O’Donohue.
“He must put the protection of those who protect us, as well as the wider community, first and send a very strong message that this dangerous and reckless behavior is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”
The Victorian government urges people to do the right thing to stop the spread of the virus.
The reclassification of measures into parts of the state means that people can only leave their home for four essential purposes: groceries, daily exercise, to give or receive care and to go to school or work.

On Sunday, Victoria registered 273 new cases of COVID-19.
A man in his seventies also died after contracting the virus.
The extra death brings the national toll to 108 after a man in his nineties also died on Saturday.
Mr. Andrews begged people to follow those orders and told the audience on Sunday that it is currently a “very dangerous” situation.
“This is a dangerous time,” he said.
At least 145 cases have been linked to the North Melbourne and Flemington people’s towers, while another 22 are linked to a Carlton residential block.
But Chief Medical Officer Brett Sutton confirmed that those numbers are finally starting to slow down after 10 towers were placed in a total lockdown last week.

Eight cases have been linked to Alfred Hospital, although five are not believed to have been diagnosed. Initial tests suggest they have contracted the virus in the community.
The three other cases of coronavirus were picked up by contact detection and immediately asked to isolate themselves.
Further cases have been linked to Box Hill Hospital and Brunswick Private Hospital, as well as a local slaughterhouse. More details about clusters are expected on Sunday afternoon.
“This is a very challenging time, and I know we are asking a lot of Victorians, but we just have no choice but to acknowledge the reality we are facing and do what needs to be done, and that is following those rules to go out only if necessary and go out only for the purposes permitted by law, “said Mr. Andrews.
The prime minister said that the police would be out in full force and would not issue warnings to people caught breaking the rules.
“If we don’t follow the rules, if we don’t play our part, we’ll just see this virus continue to spread, and it will be a longer second wave, a more pronounced, a more tragic second wave than it should be, ‘he said.
“No one wanted to be in this position, but here we are.”
