Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has revealed there will be radical Stage Three lockdowns in a bid to slow the killer coronavirus.
Mr Andrews was cagey about what exactly the new lockdown restrictions would entail but warned the changes were definitely coming for Victorians.
“There will be a stage three,” he said.
"The exact nature of those measures and the timing it occurs, I will stand here and very clearly and directly explain to Victorians what they need to do at that stage.
"But right now, if you can stay at home you must stay at home. You should not be having friends over for a dinner party, you should not be out shopping if you don't need it."
It is unclear whether the changes would be rolled out nationally but Prime Minister Scott Morrison was adamant in his address on Tuesday night that the country needed to take a national approach.
The consumer watchdog has ordered Facebook, eBay and Gumtree to tear down ads for hand sanitiser and toilet paper to crack down on hoarders trying to profit from the coronavirus.
In an exclusive interview with Sky News, ACCC Chairman Rod Sims said the method was working but warned hoarders federal police were also probing the dodgy practice.
“There have been a lot of people buying goods and then trying to sell them online and weve worked with all of the platforms, Gumtree, eBay, Facebook to get them to take down ads for sanitiser and toilet paper where they are tyring to mark them up at ridiculous prices,” he said.
“But otherwise we are just making sure that price increases (in supermarkets) have got a sound basis.
“Closing down the websites has made a big difference and minister Dutton has got the federal police on to this as well.”
