Commenting on the story: Warning against people stealing hand sanitiser from SA hospitals.

I was beyond shocked to read that some people have been stealing hand sanitiser from SA hospitals.

Health services in hospitals must be sacrosanct.

Unfortunately we need CCTV cameras in Australian hospitals recording anyone near hand sanitiser, and other crucial hospital supplies that may be pilfered.

Anyone caught stealing should be charged with a criminal offence that stays on their record; it is that serious.

For a second offence they should go to jail. – Deborah Guise

Commenting on the story: Elderly-only shopping hour after shelves stripped bare

About the early time for the elderly, I think it is not good at all.

I have heart problems and my husband uses crutches and is soon going to be 70 years old.

We have been going to Woolworths and Coles at about 8am and shelves are bare and most of them empty.

We can’t go and wait in the cold. We are really disappointed. – Maria Caruana

Commenting on the story: Coronavirus chaos: $17.6b Govt bailout, events cancelled

I don’t get paid until the 27th of March. Don’t think there will be much left in the lower price range by then.

Great the government is addressing the situation, but far too little too late.

In 10 days time I will have to buy what’s left over. Sitting and watching the shops run empty as I wait for funding to get food. – James Stewart

I’m all for the aged pensioners and people with disabilities to receive this cash payment but as a mother of three children aged 10 and under and a worker who works two casual jobs just to survive week to week, I have to say I’m disappointed the government isn’t helping low/middle income earners or the medical workers, as we are the ones that pay our taxes to fund things like this. – Suzane Petrie
