Who is to blame?

Ian Braybrook, Castlemaine

Who is to blame for the spread of the Covid-19 virus from the hotel quarantine? Dan Andrews? Government Ministers? Department Heads? The Chief Health Officer? No! It is none of these. It is a handful of the people placed in quarantine who would not obey the rules. Instead, these selfish people proceeded to inflict the virus on the community; recklessly causing death, misery, and economic disaster.
Place the blame where it belongs. A group of people who were surely aware of the serious threat they posed; serious enough to have them placed in forced isolation. They knew the danger that they presented.
The blame rests squarely with those who treated the rules, and the rest of us, with contempt.
