‘People’s safety outsourced’ in Victoria’s hotel quarantine debacle

'People's safety outsourced' in Victoria's hotel quarantine debacle

The hotel quarantine debacle in Victoria, which has been identified as a major source of the state’s second coronavirus outbreak, is a “shambolic mess,” according to Victorian Shadow Police Minister David Southwick. New information has emerged on the breakdown of health security processes in Victoria’s quarantine facilities, indicating security guards were not given proper training and the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment was not always used by staff. Mr Southwick said 300,000 people living in Melbourne have been forced back into lockdown due to the “bad leadership” of Premier Daniel Andrews. He said the state’s health department was responsible for hotel quarantine programs and the decision to outsource security guards who have now been hit with “allegations of a sexual activity,” and who may have contributed to the spread of the virus from these facilities. “We’ve contracted out people’s community safety,” he told Sky News host Chris Kenny.
