AUSTRALIA TO GO INTO LOCK-DOWN NOW, TO AVERT COVID-19 DISASTER

Dear Prime Minister,

WE, your citizens who elected YOU to serve us, are petitioning YOU with a dire sense of URGENCY, to PLEASE TAKE DRASTIC ACTION NOW in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

THANKYOU for the action you have been taking, however we believe EVEN GREATER ACTION is STILL NECESSARY!

WE NEED TO LOCK-DOWN NOW AND PRACTICE EXTREME SOCIAL DISTANCING! Essential services should continue. Schools should close and only remain open to look after the children of those on the frontline. Businesses should close. We will need HELP and SUPPORT from your Government to keep afloat financially, as other Governments are doing around the world.

Our Aussie ‘laid-back’ approach to life is what makes this country so great, however it is also the reason why the current social distancing measures alone will not work in our special country, as many people think ‘she’ll be right mate’ and will not adhere to the current measures in place.

As people are infected by COVID-19 before any symptoms show, people will continue to go about their daily business and infections WILL CONTINUE TO SPREAD RAPIDLY in the work place, at social gatherings etc. The only way to stop this is to avoid contact with other people AT ALL COSTS.

We believe that by taking greater action now, yes, it will be hard for all of us, as well as the economy, but it is in the best long-term interest of all Australians.

This pandemic is still growing exponentially. There is no more time to waste. WE MUST TAKE IMMEDIATE & DRASTIC ACTION NOW! It seems clear that aggressive action must now be taken in Australia, to avert a similar crisis to that in Italy. On the current trajectory, we are headed in the same direction!

PLEASE, WE NEED TO LOCK-DOWN NOW!!

Regards,

Informed and therefore very concerned Citizens of Australia
