Same kind of idiots in Australia as here

Doc says "Telling people not to be on a beach or otherwise outside is dumb", asshat responds:
Asked for a response, Deputy Chief Health Officer Dr Nick Coatsworth, said, "The current measures to limit gatherings are consistent with those adopted in other nations such as the United Kingdom and are necessary to prevent Australia's epidemic worsening."

Australian authorities have so far refused to release the modelling behind their decisions.

While Deputy Chief Medical Officer Paul Kelly said earlier this week that the modelling would be "unlocked" this week, he appeared to backpedal a little on Wednesday.
Basically "Everybody else is doing this, so shut up and do what you're told.  And you can't see our models!"
And I wonder why that might be...
