Statement by the CC of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) on the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
THE GOVERNMENT HAS FAILED US. THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED US.
Coronavirus was brought into Australia by travellers from other countries, yet for weeks they were simply allowed to get off planes and ships without any government screening, at most being told to self isolate for 14 days. The onus was put on the individual traveller. This did not work. The government’s inaction has led to the virus spreading throughout the country and people dying.
