The Project hosts have mocked NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard in a light-hearted segment on the show, over his advice about Sydney lockdown.
There have been 277 local COVID-19 cases reported since June 16 in Sydney, with residents being urged to stay at home.
However, The Project hosts, Peter Van Onselen, Lisa Wilkinson, Nazeem Hussain and Jan Fran, were left puzzled by some of the statements made by NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard during a COVID-19 press conference.
“Right now the most dangerous place is actually our homes,' Mr Hazzard said on Sunday.
“Aussies tend to think of their home as their castle. But right now it can be Covid central.”
After the short clip was played on The Project, the hosts could be heard awkwardly laughing, with Nazeem saying: “Brad Hazzard really living up to his name. Thanks, great to know that. Nowhere is friggin safe.'
“What does he want us to do if our homes become Covid central? Where do we go?” Jan added.
They then continued, playing another segment from the press conference where Mr Hazzard warned people about being affectionate with others who don’t live in their household.
“If you do have the need to go to someone's home, it would be very wise for you to avoid kissing, cuddling, closeness, any proximity at all,” he said.
“It could mean this virus can get you and spread it then to others when you leave that house.”
“Yeah, that was health minister and sexologist Brad Hazzard,” Nazeen said, with Lisa Wilkinson adding: “So it used to be, 'darling, I've got a headache', now it's 'I've got a Hazzard'.”
