Frankly, Victorians don’t take orders from Greg Hunt, the bloke who forgot to place an order for vaccines. Seriously. “We’re out there doing the commonwealth government’s work for them; the least they can do is not be lecturing us on how to get that job done.”
I want to say to Mr Frydenberg: Victorians are getting sick and tired of every time the Commonwealth Government spends $1 in Victoria, it’s treated like it’s foreign aid. Like we should bow our head and be grateful
I would just say (to Josh Frydenberg), 'This is not about you, and your breathless political rants don't work against this virus'. The focus should be on the amazing vaccine push from Victorians. This is their moment.
It is a credit to every single Victorian, ... their conviction, compassion, and an absolute determination to get this (vaccine rollout) done.
It shouldn't take a crisis in Sydney for the Prime Minister to take action but we are seeing the same double standard time and time again. His job is not to be the Prime Minister for NSW.
Let me make one thing absolutely clear: Anger isn't going to make this pandemic end any quicker. Acts of violence isn't going to stop people ending up in ICU, or be any help to the nurses treating them. Literally only one thing will - getting vaccinated.
No worker in construction or any other industry has an entitlement to make the work of our nurses harder. No one has that entitlement.
People can get upset at the fact that someone resigned. I'm much more focused on the fact that people are harming themselves and, sometimes, taking their own lives, because of bigotry and prejudice. (in response to criticism for his views on ex-Essendon FC CEO Andrew Thorburn’s links to a controversial church, saying the issues are “much much bigger” than a footy club)
Some don’t like to see this (vaccination rollout) as a race but a race it surely is. What I didn’t know was that [NSW] Premier [Gladys] Berejiklian’s in a sprint while the rest of us are supposed to do some sort of egg and spoon thing.
The national plan is about all of us moving together. It’s also not a national plan for picnics, just quietly
The notion of giving up vaccine that could have been in Victorians’ arms so that people in other states can go and have picnics, no, that’s not what we are doing.
Ultimately, we need to remain vigilant (in reference to dealing with the Covid-19 worldwide pandemic)
We're heading towards being one of the most vaccinated places in the world - and I couldn't be prouder.
We’ve been doing many of these (Covid safe) things for months. But as we seek to reach – and then maintain – COVID Normal, they’ll still be as important as ever.
We’ve said the whole way through – this (Covid-19) is like a public health bushfire. And just like a bushfire, there’s steps we can all take to keep ourselves and our homes safe.
Why have we had lockdowns? Because we didn’t have the vaccine. Why have we had rules and density limits and all manner of quite unimaginable restrictions on people’s lives? Because we didn’t have a vaccine.”
Quotes from the news wire:
I don’t think an unvaccinated tennis player is going to get a visa to come into this country, and if they did get a visa, they’d probably have to quarantine for a couple of weeks when no other player has to. ... I don’t think any other tennis player, or golfer, or Formula One driver, will even get a visa to get here.
What we must do is suppress case numbers sufficiently to buy us time to get people vaccinated. What that means is that we can't ease restrictions today in any profound way, we are in for a difficult time, a challenging time over these coming weeks.

We've talked about this virus being like a public health bushfire. By putting a ring around metropolitan Melbourne, we're essentially putting in place a perimeter to protect regional Victorians, it's clear we are on the cusp of our second wave and we can not let this virus cut through our communities.
We know we're on the cusp of something very, very bad if we don't get on top of this, i think a sense of complacency has crept into us as we let our frustrations get the better of us. I think that each one know someone who has not been following the rules as well as they should have. I think each of us know that we have got no choice by to take very very difficult steps.

Even with rain in Melbourne, even with forecast better conditions next week, there is a long way to go in what has been an unprecedented fire event...and, of course, we know that we have many weeks of the fire season to run, the next few hours are going to be very, very challenging.
