Infected worker moved between jobs

Luke Grant

Luke Grants talks to Rachel Baxendale, Victorian political report for The Australian, about her recent article about the Victorian worker who became infected with coronavirus while working in hotel quarantine that was allowed to simultaneously work shifts in an aged-care centre at the height of Victoria’s second wave.

 

Ms Baxendale writes, ‘The incident occurred at a time when the Andrews government was shutting down entire industries and making it illegal for hundreds of thousands of Victorians to attend work in a bid to suppress the spread of the virus, which was out of control as a result of breaches three months earlier in the hotel quarantine program.’

 

This occurred because the government “can’t reduce” worker movement “to zero”, ­according to Premier Daniel Andrews.
