Lockdown Eases In Australia

A lying pizza joint employee forced 1.7 million people into lockdown

Australian state begins one of world's toughest lockdowns

Asked what punishment the individual might face, Police Commissioner Grant Stevens said there was "no penalty" for lying to tracers under the current law, though that would likely be reviewed.

The phrase "one bad fish can spoil the whole pond" may have come true for people of this one country as one lie of a man has led to the world's toughest lockdown in one country.

The man, who has not been identified, reportedly said he only went to the food outlet to buy a pizza when he had worked several shifts alongside another worker who tested positive for the disease.

Commissioner Stephens said the person's lie "clearly changes the circumstances", adding "had this person been truthful to the contact tracing teams, we would not have gone into a six-day lock down". The false information has been blamed for sending the state into lockdown.

What about serious and aggressive contact tracing?

South Australian authorities have announced that the lockdown will be lifted on Saturday at midnight and the ban on outdoor exercise and dog walking will be revoked too.
