I really, really don't like bananas. I'm also Herald Sun Health Editor. Views expressed are mine, not the paper's (particularly those about bananas)

Devestating. Melbourne‘s most disadvantaged communities with the most severe lockdown orders. Will be traumatic for many especially those without English. Police officer on every floor to stop anyone leaving? Terrifying. All strength to North Melb and Flemington Estate residents.

Geelong match starts at 4.35pm - any chance the terrible news can be delivered quickly?

Hmmm... rule is that the later it is, the less time given to get there, the worse the news is. Any money on 100+ cases and further postcodes locked down?

If you’re not showing symptoms & are just being tested as part of the door knock, you don’t need to isolate - this would be explained when they visit and offer test. No need to lose a roof or food & if test turns out positive they can claim the $1500 No need for the abuse either.

I don’t write headlines and I’ve never made a joke of any of this. I’ve also never told people not to get tested - I’ve spent months trying to push people to be responsible, get tested, distance & stop the spread in any way they can.

How the hell has my perspective changed? Take a look at everything I've written since the start of this pandemic - there's a few hundred articles -& show me where I've had any difference in perspective. Otherwise, think a bit before you make an all-too-easy comment with no basis

If you think it's too uncomfortable for you to spend 5mins having a test, imagine what it's like having to travel into a hot zone for chemotherapy while taking social distancing to extremes you wouldn't even consider. Get a bloody test

TEN THOUSAND people have refused coronavirus tests. Sorry, but I live with & love somebody with a no immune system at the moment and you are all risking her life and pissing me off. Stop thinking of yourself and grow up.

Question was fair & for public benefit. Answer was fair & for the public benefit. Full context & explanation was there for people to make their own minds up as they see fit. But you’d have to be living under a rock - or twisting this whole exchange - to think it wasn’t legit

Victoria Police will he actively patrolling these suburbs and enforcing fines if people refuse to stay at home (unless out for one of the four prescribed reasons).

Concerning to hear that one of our members has tested positive to overnight. I have spoken with the Paramedic. In good spirits considering, and feeling OK.

The last time Vic had so many cases of coronavirus it was due to people arriving from overseas - it was up to governments to close borders & quarantine returnees. Latest surge is due to Victorians not doing responsible things - it's up to the wider community to overcome.

Why today’s coronavirus case numbers are by far the worst yet for Victoria - and why its up to ordinary Victorians to stop the spread, rather than our authorities

In reality today's figure is much, much more dangerous - previous high daily totals were mainly made up of returned travellers, who were easy to put a fence around. Not the case with today's community-drive infections

Damn. My daughter thought Aretha Franklin was singing “I’ll save a little bread for you” and now I can’t hear this song any other way.
