Josh Frydenberg flays Victoria’s ‘LUDICROUS’ COVID lockdown restriction that has residents up in arms

0

Federal treasurer Josh Frydenberg has described Victoria’s current COVID-19 lockdown rules allowing for entry from NSW but enforcing confinement in Melbourne as “ludicrous and unacceptable”.

The situation means somebody in Sydney can travel nearly one thousand kilometres to visit a pub in Lorne but residents of the Victorian capital can’t even see family in other suburbs, Frydenberg says.

That’s despite vaccination rates rapidly rising across the southern state, with close to 88 per cent of people having received a first dose and 64 per cent a second.

“The people of Victoria should be congratulated,” Frydenberg told journalists in Melbourne on Saturday.

“They have done the hard yards and they are doing the right thing

“Now they should be given their freedoms and their lives back.”
