Lisa Wilkinson Gets Roasted Online Over COVID-19 Comments

The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson has been called out online after saying that Australia’s COVID-19 situation is a bin fire”.

The Project has been covering the pandemic coming up for two years. So it makes sense their hosts have such strong opinions.

First, Steve Price kicked off over potential travel restrictions and said, “Fancy these (people) over there callings us dirty, filthy, Aussie Covid carriers.”

Then, The Project hosts were discussing New Zealand’s new restriction that COVID cases have to isolate for 24 days and news.com.au reported Wilkinson said, “‘If that doesn’t give you an indication that Jacinda Ardern has looked across the ‘ditch’ at our bin fire and gone, ‘Not doing that!’ Wow.”

Now, Wilkinson has been called out on Twitter as people feel it’s a privileged position to be okay with such a long time isolating.

Ex-deputy chief health office, Dr Coastworth has been retweeting tweets that slam the television host – passive-aggressive but powerful.

Below are the tweets Dr Coastworth retweeted.

Here at B&T – we are just keen to boogie with our mates when it’s safe too!
