The company has not said what might be causing the outage, which is affecting the whole world.

Let's pretend we don't smell a fart because we are wearing trousers. Hahahahaha regional Victoria continues to suffer due to the inept handling of the situation in Melbourne, how does masks in Mildura stop spread in Melbourne? Dan Andrews and especially his medical advisors should be charged with gross negligence for not telling people what types of masks are to be worn. We have Australian Standards in this country. The masks I have seen being sold wouldn't prevent hay fever.

There they are, the culprits ! This is too late DanielAndrewsMP. Mask should have been mandatory for ALL VICTORIANS from the start of this second wave. A tougher full lockdown would have saved more lives sooner than dragging it for weeks. No cases where I live yet we are told to wear masks. What a lot of rubbish. This is all about control (over people), power, money, corruption and a deflection from incompetence, mismanagement and now the 60 minutes program on Sunday. Worst government in my lifetime.

resignDanAndrews Why Sunday ? So burka’s are back in vogue?!? Awesome!!! Wearing a mask to stop a 0.1 micron virus is like using a wooden lattice to stop insects. Sure, it might stop some, but it sure gives a false sense of security.

'Authoritarianism meets ignorance' over mandatory Melbourne face mask policy | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Rowan Dean says “authoritarianism meets ignorance” amid the strict implementation of face mask requirements in Victoria.\n\nIn Victoria, all people leaving their homes for essential purposes in metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire are required to wear a mask or risk a $200 fine or $10,000 fine for businesses.\n\nSky News host Andrew Bolt said the Victorian government decided to mandate the use of face masks in accordance with a Lancet journal article which concluded face masks could reduce the spread of COVID-19.\n\n“But yet how does that negate study after study, expert after expert for months telling us that in fact most of these face masks do not work, people touch them, they don’t use them correctly, they take them off the wrong way, they get infected,' he said.\n\nMr Dean said there is a “really nasty streak of Trump derangement syndrome running through this entire pandemic” where anything that Trump supports, the media immediately denounces.\n\nThe government should “give people all the latest up to date information, even if some of it is contradictory from different studies and allow people to make up their own mind”.\n\n“Otherwise we end up with this madness where … people are looking to their governments and not really understanding what their governments are telling them”.\n\nImage: AP beestydi Who gives a flying fuck what Rowan Dean says. So exactly when did Rowan meet the authoritarians? “Idiocy meets ideology” should be the tag line of Dean

Soon we will hear the virus lives in hair. Frontline doctors..an informative video about COVID - 19 and strategies!! A must viewing!!

There shouldn't be a wait 'on the mandating of mask wearing' | Sky News AustraliaMandatory mask wearing, particularly in densely populated places like Sydney, would help avert a second wave of COVID-19,according to UNSW Global Biosecurity expert Professor Raina MacIntyre. \n\n'Ideally we shouldn't be waiting before we mandate masks,' Professor MacIntrye told Sky News host Peta Credlin. \n\nProfessor MacIntrye said the wearing of masks shouldn't be an 'either\u002For recommendation'. \n\n'Masks should not be just an either\u002For recommendation when you can't socially distance'. \n\n'All the evidence shows that you need to use all of the interventions together for maximal effect'. \n\nResidents of Melbourne are currently required to mask up when leaving home or risk a fine. \n\nImage: Getty\n Sweden no Yet again another fear mongering beaurocrat or lecturer I mposing their insecurity on others .... social distancing is the best way to keep safe no need to engage with others closely 90% of day ..

Victoria’s fight against COVID-19 has been a ‘calamity of failures’ | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Peta Credlin says Victoria’s current COVID-19 situation was caused by a “calamity of failures” on behalf of the Victorian Andrews government.\n\n“I call it systemic failure,” she told Sky News host Alan Jones.\n\nOn Tuesday Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced the state recorded 384 new cases of coronavirus and six additional deaths. \n\nFour of the deaths were linked to aged care and 769 active cases are in aged care settings.\n\nImage: Getty DanielAndrewsMP Surely North Face will sue Dan for wearing their jacket.

Victoria records deadliest day since beginning of pandemic | Sky News AustraliaVictoria has recorded its deadliest day since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, with 13 new deaths in the past 24 hours. \n\nVictorian Premier Daniel Andrews said the fatalities included three men and three women in their 70s, three men and two women in their 80s and two men in their 90s. \n\nThe state’s total virus death toll now stands at 105. \n\nPremier Andrews confirmed another 723 new cases of the virus in the past 24 hours, also making it the highest daily increase of cases. \n\nOf 5,385 total active cases in the state, Mr Andrews said 312 people were being treated in hospital and 34 required treatment in the intensive care unit. \n\nThe Premier said 913 active cases were from the state’s aged care sector. \n\nHe said ADF personnel were doorknocking the homes of people who returned a positive test, to ensure they were isolating and understood what was required of them. \n\nOf 269 homes visited yesterday, he said a number of people were not home and those people had been referred to the police for investigation. \n\n“If you’re a positive case then you need to be at home and you need to be isolating. To have found even one person to have disregarded their diagnosis and decided to go to work, is very disappointing,” he said. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia Welcome to hell Victoria Is this all you are going to do from now on ?
