Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has sent the “selfish” Victorians a scathing message that continues to criticise the face mask policy of the state.
Andrews announced another 10 deaths on Sunday-including one man in his 40’s-and 459 new coronavirus reports.
He says the death toll of the state, that has risen to 71, should be at the forefront of the minds of people when asked to wear a mask.
“If it was a genuine error, a sense of any confusion then police will use good judgement,” he said.
“But if you are just making a selfish choice that your alleged personal liberty – quoting …. something you’ve read on some website – this is not about human rights.
“There are ten families that are going to be burying someone in the next few days.
“There are 10 families who are currently planning funerals. The youngest among them is in their 40s. Please wear a mask.
“Wear a mask. It’s not too much to ask.”
A $200 fine applies to anyone in Melbourne and Mitchell Shire who has no valid reason for not wearing a mask.
The remarks of the Premier follow a Bunnings customer questioning a manager because she said she wouldn’t have to wear a face mask because it’s her “right to do whatever I want as a living woman.”
