Covid-19 New changes to the Law in Australia
As you already know this Coronavirus has affected the world along many being affected with the virus alongside unfortunately many deaths as a result.
Since the virus has affected so many there are those scumbags who think it is funny to cough or spit on others.
This is such a stupid act to do even before this Covid-19 came upon us all
At the moment the NSW Police (NSW a state on the Eastern Coast of Australia) has powers to fine these scumbags for spiting and/coughing on Health workers and those in the front line such as Doctors, Nurses, Paramedics, Pharmacists along with Police.
Now enough is enough as of tomorrow Australia time 20th April 2020 this law will now be extended to apply to all who do such vile acts upon others including in the workplace and anywhere else.
I read recently a couple of youths decided to cough and spit on an elderly couple walking along the road.
Another case was a women (if you could call her that) got arrested after supermarket staff reported her to the Police for spitting on Bannanas in the stalls.
There have been cases of such morons coughing and spitting on supermarket staff especially when the toilet paper and other essentials debacle started.
One checkout operator was coughed at because she refused a refund for a valid reason I am sure.
These are just some of the low acts some do and especially thiese young youths think it's a great prank to be coughing and spitting on people just to scare them so they can get their laughs.
Pathetic isn’t it.
So hopefully, these people will learn a lesson I doubt it as scumbags will be scumbags.
Let’s hope that those who have already been victims of such abuse are all OK and nothing serious occurs.
What are your thoughts in your country as such acts.
