No more point scoring
The state with a lot of hard work and dedication by people saw the state come out of a very difficult time period that resulted in the good that came from people, but sadly the worst came out of some who appear to be selfish only thinking of their own self interests.
And the disappointing aspect was that at the early stages of this pandemic there was a cohesive approach by all levels of government. But as time went by this fractured and a lot of sniping began to creep into the situation, mostly lead by federal government members, including Victorian federal members who were quick to slam Dan Andrews of his decisions.
Also the NSW premier was quick to close the borders and criticise Victoria, but we are now in a situation that has been created by NSW.
Just recently I heard comments made by NSW medical staff was praising the state's position of how they were the leaders of this pandemic in the way they have dealt with things.
Victorian Premier was also condemned and criticised for the deaths of the elderly, but this can be also put into the hands of the federal government.
Under Scott Morrison's reign as Treasurer, they cut millions out of aged care, and these deaths were in private aged care facilities that are run to make a profit, cutting corners by not providing PPE, and training staff, employing staff that were working at more than one facility and the lack of good English speaking employees.
Well sorry, I don't buy that theory. Who was it that allowed the Ruby Princess to dock and let passengers disembark in Sydney - no action taken.
Who allowed the borders to open and allow arrivals from New Zealand, and police were in control allowing passengers to board flights to other states with no checking taking place.
Who opened up the beaches early, only to have to shut them down just as quick.
The federal government was slow in closing down the international borders just as they were slow in their response and support for the bush fires.
They all came out guns ablazing over the security guard debacle, calling for blood against Dan Andrews.

It beggars belief and what was the outcome from the last problem in that state from the lies that were told causing a large scare? What penalty was given to that person responsible?
To me the most positive states in trying to combat this pandemic is Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.
It's time for the federal government, NSW and SA to catch up instead of causing divisions in political point scoring.
The lives and economy are the things that matter most to the majority of people.
