Lee Kavanagh started this petition to State Government of Victoria, Australia

Yesterday, Daniel Andrews announced that his government would declare a state of emergency in Victoria and introduce extreme measures to be taken as part of "Stage 4 Restrictions," ostensibly to address the coronavirus pandemic.

People may disagree about whether it is valid or wise to restrict freedom to prevent the spread of coronavirus, but many of the stage 4 restrictions fail to meet this burden.

The curfew between 8pm and 5am is the most flagrantly ineffective and counter-evidentiary measure. It has been well understood for some time now that outdoor transmission of coronavirus is negligible; the overwhelming majority of transmission occurs by close, person-to-person contact indoors. The governments own public statements and assessment of the problem clearly acknowledge this; the "biggest driver of transmission," Daniel Andrews has repeatedly said, is people who go to work while displaying symptoms of the virus.

To combat a virus which is overwhelmingly transmitted indoors during the day, by forfeiting our freedom of movement outdoors during the night. 

We petition the Andrews' government to remove this unjustifiable government overreach coronavirus policy.
