Cricketing great Shane Warne has lashed Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison over his confusing Covid-19 address.
Morrison, in a live TV address on Tuesday evening, confirmed schools would remain open despite businesses such as beauty salons, tanning and nail studios being forced to shut in a bid by the government to contain the Coronavirus pandemic.
Those businesses were added to the list of non-essential businesses forced to shut after pubs, clubs and gyms were forced to shut their doors on Monday.
Many Australians raised immediate concerns about the contradictions, including the country's greatest ever spin bowler.
"Listening to the PM like everyone here in Australia and what I understood was, 'It's essential unless it's not. Then it's essentially not essential. I can't be clearer'.
"Plus people can buy a new shirt at a shopping centre? PM just had a shocker. Surely should be in lockdown now," Warne wrote.
Warne then doubled down in as criticism as he called for a countrywide lockdown.
"Ps I know it's impossible to please everyone as PM at the moment, but surely clear rules and lockdown for Australia as of NOW is the only decision - end of (sic)," Warne wrote.
"Let's learn from the mistakes other countries have made.
"Health has to be the most important thing for everyone!"
