In a first for Australian society, The rest of the nation is now treating Victorians gently and with the love and respect that they need to get through these difficult times.
The lack of shit talk about Victoria, while uncharacteristic for the northern states, comes as an olive branch of basic decency – as their major centre is plunged into an indefinite lockdown.
From 6:00pm on Sunday, all of metropolitan Melbourne was placed under stage four restrictions, which includes a curfew from 8:00pm to 5:00am each night preventing people from leaving their homes unless it is for work, giving or receiving care, or visiting a partner.
Victoria is now under both a state of disaster and a state of emergency, after the Government offered police greater powers to help enforce tightened restrictions in a bid to force down worrying community transmission of coronavirus.
The entire nation has pulled themselves up short of teasing Victoria about this current predicament they find themselves in, and instead just muttered the words “poor buggers”.
Victoria was asked for comment as well, and was only able to offer a “ah shit”.
SIX MORE WEEKS TO COME.
