On Wednesday night, an ABC reporter was doing the Lord’s job by giving the public a quintessentially Australian slip of the tongue during a live crossbreeding with Victorian Prime Minister Daniel Andrews, she inadvertently referred to him as an Australian alcohol chain, Dan Murphys And look, we support it

The late evening press conference was held because a hotel quarantine worker in Victoria tested positive for COVID-19, the worker has been linked to the Australian Open and around 600 people have been identified as close contacts

It is believed that the worker could have the UK strain of the virus, which is considered highly contagious

As a result, Dan Andrews has announced the return of some previous COVID-19 restrictions – household gatherings for 15 people and mandatory wearing of masks in indoor public spaces

There was also a break for the 8th February planned upper limit of 75 percent for return to work inserted The current upper limit of 50 percent remains in place for the time being

Despite the deeply worrying news, social media got at least a little laugh at the ABC live cross to the premier

“The Victorian Department of Health has confirmed that a hotel quarantine worker has tested positive for Covid-19,” said ABC reporter Beverley O’Connor

}}

And given the state of mind Victorian is in right now, can we really blame Bev for saying what everyone thinks?

The ABC News host accidentally said they would switch to Premier “Dan Murphy” before correcting themselves and honestly what a queen ???? # COVID19Vic

The ABC newsreader just called it a press conference “with Dan Murphy” and yes, that would be better tonight, thanks # COVID19Vic

“I promise I won’t be on the beers tonight, not Dan Murphy, but Dan Andrews now on @abcnews,” O’Connor tweeted, connecting to a video of Andrews’ iconic phrase, “Get on the Beers “pronounced
