The Victorian Government is hoping to push through a new bill that would allow them to detain “high-risk” coronavirus spreaders.

The powers would be applied to those who health authorities believe would negligently spread the deadly virus as Victoria works to bring its coronavirus outbreak under control.

The rules, seen by The Age, would be a six-month extension of the ones made in April, taking the detaining powers to March next year.

Anyone deemed high risk by health authorities could be forcibly detained under the extension of powers including conspiracy theorists or anti-lockdown protesters who refuse to isolate.

Almost 200 people were fined and 74 were arrested in Melbourne on Sunday during dramatic rallies as anti-lockdown protesters ramped up their campaign.

Victoria Police said 176 fines were issued for breaches of the chief health officer directions.

It said the biggest protest occurred at the Queen Victoria Market where some 200-250 people gathered.

  1. The Communist Victorian Government is creating Fear as the main ingredient into controlling any dissent from the people.
    Fear of police, fear of massive fines and fear of jail just for starters and in the Russian Revolution that bred the Communist evil now used by the Victorian Government the Police used these tactics by attacking homes late at night and dragging people away never to be seen again. Is this the future that Dictator Dan is designing.
    JT Lang who was a leader in the Labour Party around the Late twenties and early thirties wrote a book titled ” Communism in Australia”. Lang was deeply concerned that the Communist infiltration into his Labour Party was detrimental to Australia and how right he was. That was some 100 years ago.
    People who vote for this enemy within our gates should re-consider their options and hopefully this Communist
    Ghetto of evil will become extinct. If they vote Labour in in the next election then Victorians deserve their fate.
