Other than demonstrating once again what a complete liar he is, never mind how grossly incompetent, why would this be: Daniel Andrews baulks at releasing Covid-19 lockdown advice?
The Andrews government is refusing to say whether it will comply with orders from Victoria’s privacy watchdog to release documents detailing the basis for the state’s lockdown in February.
The Office of the Victorian Information Commissioner on Tuesday ordered the government to release 176 Health Department documents detailing the advice that guided the government’s decision to enforce a stage four lockdown on February 1….
Victorian opposition upper house leader David Davis, who has been fighting for the release of documents underpinning all six lockdowns, said Victorians had a right to know why they had been forced to stay home.
“If your business has been slammed shut, you’re entitled to know why,” Mr Davis said.
“If you can’t see your loved ones in hospital, you’re entitled to see the advice on which those decisions have been made.”
Mr Davis said the refusal to release the advice would call into questions the government’s credibility.
Meanwhile, as shown at the link, Covid numbers in Victoria are ballooning even as more people are getting the vax, following a trend found across the world. See Increases in COVID-19 are unrelated to levels of vaccination across 68 countries and 2947 counties in the United States for the details.
At the country-level, there appears to be no discernable relationship between percentage of population fully vaccinated and new COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days. In fact, the trend line suggests a marginally positive association such that countries with higher percentage of population fully vaccinated have higher COVID-19 cases per 1 million people.
They are going to have to find new sets of lies to explain just how incompetent our governments have been.
