Miffed with the local public and citizens of the country, legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has called for “clear rules” and a lockdown in the country to combat the increasing threat of coronavirus pandemic. The global disease has already claimed over 16,000 lives across the world and taken eight lives in Down Under. Also Read - Delhi Capitals Speedster Anrich Nortje Tests COVID-19 Positive: Report

The 50-year-old Australian recently made headlines when he stated that his gin distillery – SevenZeroEight, has decided to produce hand sanitisers for hospitals. Warne owns the company with two prominent West Australian surgeons and the company says the alcohol hand rubs it produces will be provided to two hospitals in the western state – for a cost though.

“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. Let’s learn from the mistakes other countries have made. Health has to be the most important thing for everyone !” Warne said in a tweet.

“Listening to the PM like everyone here in Aust & 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 ? WTF? PM just had a shocker. Surely should be in lockdown now,” he added.

A 70-year-old woman succumbed to the deadly virus at a local hospital on Tuesday. In a bid to curb the spread of the virus, Australia have closed borders to non-citizens recently and issued a travel ban.
