    The Federal government issued him a visa and then cancelled it - not the Victorian government.

    Why all this clamour to blame someone? Nothing went wrong, he was denied entry because he could not prove he had a basis for him claim for medical exemption from having a covid vaccine. Barring the courts changing this decision he will be rightfully deported and that will successfully ends the matter.

    He could have been denied entry without making it all the way to Melb airport

    Am I the only one who has to fight back tears when I read the ever increasing Australian COVID numbers? And of the deaths that are occuring?

    That is Novak's fault, he chose to travel without a good reason for an exemption, no one forced him to come and no one forced him to be an idiot and not be vaccinated.

    Novak is not the victim, he has done wrong and he is being held to account for doing wrong.

    Anyone who tries to illegally enter this country should be punished.

    Compare with casualties from cancer, heart desease, old age etc.
    Btw, cancer and heart desease are often easier to prevent than COVID.

    While he is certainly responsible to a large extent for the situation that occured - it does not take anything away from the fact that his case has been handled very poorly.

    The rapid tests should not be free but rationed out, if free tonnes will be sent overseas to relos or even for sale. If free recipient's should have to sign a declaration that they are only for local use and big penalty for otherwise.

    With elective surgeries suspended in three states, the hospital system doesn't seem to be coping very well. This is exactly what we were warned about. And the numbers in hospital keep increasing.
