A pop-up Covid-19 testing clinic in Sydney’s south has been covered in graffiti by vandals calling the pandemic a “government scam”.
A marquee at the testing site in East Heathcote was discovered on Monday morning spray painted with huge black letters saying, “scam”, “propaganda” and “govt lies”.
A sign directing people to the clinic was also vandalised with another brazen message: “Stop murdering our children”.
It’s the second time the clinic has been targeted by vandals.
Sutherland Shire Councillor Diedree Steinwall said the unsightly graffiti was “disappointing” to see.
“How disappointing is this!” she wrote in a Facebook post.
“The NSW Police are working very hard, in conjunction with the Pathology Company and Sutherland Shire Council to find the person or people involved. Fingers crossed they are found soon!”
The photos attracted dozens of comment online, with many slamming the behaviour of those responsible.
“This, this is how we respect and thank health workers placing themselves in harms way. Disgusting,” one person wrote.
“Surprised the uneducated can spell that well,” another said.
“Bunch of idiots,” a woman responded.
Premier targeted in graffiti attack
In October, the electorate office of Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was vandalised with slogans calling for him to be sacked as Melbourne was under tough Covid restrictions.
"Sack Dan" was scrawled in red across the glass, while a brick is believed to have been thrown at a window, cracking it.
"What I'd say to those individuals and all Victorians is 'Graffiti doesn't work against this virus'," Mr Andrews said at the time.
