Victoria has invented a new type of law: medical law. Medical law is enshrined in Victorian law by emergency orders made under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Vic). Medical law is like martial law but it’s for your own good.
Medical law and martial law do share a lot of attributes: house arrest, night curfews, restrictions on movement, restrictions on association, restrictions on speech, restrictions on religion, restrictions on practising a trade/profession, roadblocks, population surveillance, military vehicles, teargas, rubber bullets and a stern leader at a lectern.
Like martial law, medical law also admits cruel farce. Right now in Victoria, it is probably illegal to acquire a new sexual partner unless your first coupling is in public.
A lot of things are probably illegal in Victoria right now.
