    ​The Anti-Defamation Commission called the act "disgusting", stating there are still individuals in Australia who "openly celebrate Hitler's satanic ideology".

    A Nazi flag and several Chinese flags with "COVID-19" written on one of them were planted on top of a Telstra communications tower in Kyabram, north of Melbourne, on Sunday, according to ABC News. The banners are believed to have been mounted on the tower between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. and were flying above the town for almost 48 hours before finally being removed.

    Police are investigating the issue, and in the meantime, no group or person has claimed responsibility for the incident.
