‘Sinister reports’ coming out of Melbourne quarantine hotels

‘Sinister reports’ coming out of Melbourne quarantine hotels

Health Editor at the Herald Sun Grant McArthur says there has been a sinister revelation about hired guards at some of Melbourne’s quarantine hotels which have been linked to the recent COVID-19 spike. On Thursday, a security guard has blown the whistle on an apparent serious lack of training at Melbourne’s quarantine hotels which were identified as the source of the city’s second outbreak of coronavirus. Mr McArthur said on a “sinister note” it’s been revealed some of the guards “may not even exist”. “There’s this rort called ghosting where you may have, say, 20 guards rostered on, (but) only 15 will show up,” Mr McArthur told Sky News host Peta Credlin. “On one level it’s a rort to tax payers, where they’re extorting wages … but the health authorities, who are supposed to be overseeing this, think there are more guards than what there is”. There are also reports security guards slept with guests who were ordered to self-isolate inside their hotel rooms. Image: Getty
