I assume there’s just as many people across the country who believe such conspiracies - so perhaps the reason for the test refusal is more to do with the Victorian governments poor communication to immigrant and vulnerable people throughout the whole pandemic which has resulted in a lack of understanding In these communities about the importance of testing in wide numbers.
@guest2 Other states had protests with no uptick in cases. Dan Andrews and his experts chose a path early on that was separate to other states and the federal guidelines - they got it wrong and need to take some of the responsibility - which isn’t Dan Andrews strong point. NSW opened restaurants and cafes etc prior to increasing private gatherings - social distancing is easier to control in a restaurant than in someone’s house, with the added economical benefits.
So true. They’re also being guided by their unions and, in Victoria particularly, state governments who seem to be amplifying these fears.
